Dinner for Chicago IT Leaders - Learnings from the Broadcom acquisition of VMware

Unlocking Enterprise Value with a Strategic, Multi-Vendor Cloud Approach


Thu, April 25, 2024


5:00 PM - 9:00 PM CST

The uncertainty surrounding Broadcom’s acquisition of VMware puts IT Leaders under pressure to quickly address the potential implications for their infrastructure budgets, staffing and support levels.

For CIOs, this puts the risks of a single-vendor dependency at the fore, but it also opens up the opportunity to pursue a strategic, multi-vendor approach to cloud implementations and operations. The timing is right to implement a multi-year plan to transform the current environment while enabling a seamless transition to the cloud operating model of the future.
