VMware IT has been on the modern management journey for several years and will share what makes us successful when it comes to simplifying IT operations, hardening security, and empowering colleagues with a personalized experience and Day One access to “any app, on any device.”




VMware on VMware: How VMware Manages its Private Cloud with vRealize Operations

Wednesday, January 20, 2021 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CST

Speaker: Jason Dunn, Cloud Operations Manager, VMware

More than ever the intricacies of modern IT infrastructure emphasize the need for comprehensive monitoring and management solutions. vRealize Operations (vROps) is an essential part of the toolbox that VMware IT uses to ensure high availability in one of the world’s largest Private Clouds. In this session we will focus on the value vROps can provide to the different roles within an IT organization. We will cover real-world use cases that demonstrate capabilities to help resolve day-to-day incidents and facilitate capacity planning efforts. We will show how metrics can be customized to align with different use cases, and visualized for easy consumption. We will also walk through how VMware uses automation to ensure 350+ vCenters are monitored consistently.

Key Takeaways:
 - Understand real-world examples that showcase benefits that apply to multiple roles within IT
 - Learn how to customize data metrics to different use cases 
 - See real examples of dynamic dashboard visualizations 
 - Learn how VMware automates and ensures monitoring consistency across 350+ vCenters




VMware on VMware: VMware IT’s Modern App Platform Delivers a Superior Developer Experience

Monday, January 25, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

Speakers: Manas Singh, Senior Applications Administrator, VMware & Varinder Kumar, IT Senior Director, VMware

VMware IT supports a diverse set of applications, environments, technology platforms and custom applications. This complexity is compounded by the numerous custom applications that our developers must create, and the many associated change requests related to design, log aggregation, and configuration monitoring. VMware IT realized it needed a platform that enables developers to build and deploy modern applications faster and also run apps on infrastructure that offers more stability at scale. To address this, IT created the Chief Digital Transformation Office (CDTO) Modern App Platform (MAP), powered by the VMware Tanzu portfolio, a suite of VMware products that enables developers to rapidly develop, deploy and manage modern applications. Along with providing high availability (infrastructure requests now have zero wait times), the platform provides self-service capabilities at each step, allowing developers to deliver new features and releases with minimal intervention from operations teams.

Key Takeaways:
 - Learn how to build a platform that delivers superior customer and/or colleague experience
 - Understand how to integrate systems in real time and reduce the time to build software
 - Hear how to improve scalability, user accessibility and security
