  • Deliver Better Remote Access with VMware SASE Platform Dec 9 2020 9:00 am UTC 43 mins
    Chris Le, Senior Product Marketing Manager at VMware
    Rapid expansion of remote work has put IT networking and security teams in constant overdrive. This is too big a stage for traditional VPN and networking infrastructure. The new way of working is causing unplanned demands on infrastructure and bad user experience, which decreases business output and creates security risks from unsecured devices, as an example. In this session, we will introduce VMware Secure Access™, part of the VMware SASE Platform™ that combines the best of VMware Workspace ONE and VMware SD-WAN™ to provide remote access as a service to our remote and mobile users.
  • SASE in a Work from Anywhere World: Why You Should Care Dec 3 2020 9:00 am UTC 57 mins
    Mark Vondemkamp, Vice President of Product at VMware
    Business requirements are evolving to deliver any-user, any-device connectivity to any cloud, and any-application. This demands a digital transformation that is spanning distributed edge, data center, and cloud, and is enabled by a new digital foundation. The legacy WAN and security architecture in the middle of this transformation is obsolete and must undergo a drastic change to be part of the new digital foundation. Customers are rapidly adopting a new SASE architecture model predicted by Gartner.

    As a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure in 2018 and 2019, VMware is positioned to enable organizations to transform their WAN edge, to build a new digital foundation for new application adoption, and to enable your work-from-anywhere initiatives.

    Join this session to learn how VMware’s network transformation vision, along with its unique cloud gateways and SASE PoPs, delivers a SASE platform with intrinsic security, including ZTNA, for organizations embracing cloud and SaaS.

  • Managing IoT & Networks in Healthcare - Now & in the Future Recorded: May 21 2020 58 mins
    Paul Jones, Global Director- Network Solutions at GE Healthcare & Puneet Shetty, Product Line Manager at Nyansa ,VMware
    In 2018 the global IoT market in healthcare was valued at $147 billion and projected to expand to $534 billion in 2025 – nearly a 20% CAGR. New, networked biomedical devices such as bedside monitors, infusion pumps, and EKG machines are delivering widespread transformation. As healthcare organizations deploy these non-traditional networked devices, they face new challenges of how to codify and control the behavior, performance, and security of these devices. In order to maximize the value of IoT, healthcare companies will need to overcome these obstacles. Successful initiatives will address operational assurance over the lifecycle of IoT devices to help address business objectives: better patient care and improved clinician efficiency. Register for this webinar to hear from experts from GE Healthcare and Nyansa, now part of VMware on how they are delivering better solutions for better patient care.
  • Ensuring Healthcare Networks for the Perfect Storm Recorded: May 12 2020 54 mins
    Mary Swigart, Global Manager- Network Solutions GE Healthcare & Puneet Shetty, Product Line Manager at Nyansa ,VMware
    Your network is NOT what you should be concerned with right now. But it could be. Conservative planning for unpredictable events helps to ensure patient safety and staff effectiveness. As the number of patients in hospitals increases exponentially, so does the number of medical devices in use and the amount of data as well. Now, more than ever, connectivity and interoperability is essential to the lives of patients and healthcare workers. Increased connectivity of devices may mean less unnecessary exposure for patients and clinical staff. The entire ecosystem, relies on a robust network infrastructure that can withstand large increases in traffic, and proactively notify technicians of potential failures and pain points before they occur.
  • AIOps-Driven Network Performance Management: Achieve Self-healing Networks Now Recorded: May 6 2020 58 mins
    Shamus McGillicuddy, EMA & Anand Srinivas, VMware & Craig Connors, VMware

  • Redesign Your WAN for a Cloud-centric World Recorded: Apr 14 2020 35 mins
    Roopa Honnachari, Industry Director at Frost and Sullivan & Michael Leonard, Product Manager at VMware
    The impact of cloud computing on enterprise data centers is irreversible. In the 2019 Frost & Sullivan Enterprise Cloud survey, 54% of the IT decision makers agreed to the statement, “the cloud is the most critical part of our digital transformation strategy.” This is not surprising as cloud adoption rates continue to grow every year, with nearly 60% of the IT decision makers indicating they currently use cloud infrastructure as a service in their organization. As enterprises embrace hybrid and multi-cloud architectures to support distributed employees, suppliers and partners, there is an increased focus on application and network security. The traditional wide area network (WAN) architecture with the traffic being backhauled to headquarter location before reaching the end user does not work for the current cloud-centric era. Thanks to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology, the enterprise WAN can now transform to be more cloud friendly, and user friendly, ensuring anytime, anywhere access to enterprise applications.

    As cloud becomes an integral part of your business's digital transformation strategy, you need to redesign your WAN to ensure a successful cloud strategy. Join us on this webinar to learn about the key trends driving enterprise adoption of SD-WAN; the impact of evolving enterprise hybrid IT architecture on the enterprise WAN, and how VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud can help your organization deploy an optimized and secure WAN to support your cloud strategy.
