VMworld 2016 conference coverage

Last updated:June 2016

Editor's note

The IT world witnessed VMware in a state of upheaval over the past year, from major job cuts to a significant decrease in revenue from its signature virtualization product, vSphere. In spite of these challenges, the virtualization giant soldiered onward, perfecting its preexisting stable of products in order to maintain its status as an industry leader and ventured into new, innovative territories in a continued quest for growth.

VMware capitalized on the momentum of the DevOps movement by getting in on the ground floor, starting with introduction of its DevOps program during the first-ever Developer Day held at the VMworld 2015 conference. In addition to this effort to become a pioneer in the age of DevOps, VMware started exploring new lines of business, including AirWatch. Despite massive layoffs at the beginning of 2016, the company's end-user computing division experienced exponential growth in 2015, in large part due to the addition of identity management tools.

VMworld 2016 took place Aug. 28 to Sept. 1 at the convention center at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Check out our full coverage of the event, including news from the show floor.
