How companies are capitalizing on opportunities to increase their cloud value

Cloud brings tremendous innovation opportunities. In this episode, VMware’s William Lam talks with David Linthicum about the latest trends he’s is seeing in the cloud space—such as the rise in hybrid and multi-cloud, the modernization of on-prem architectures, disaster recovery, and the explosion of data and AI for insight-driven decision-making. The two also discuss how companies can leverage these trends at scale with sound planning and by optimizing cloud ecosystem connectivity.


It’s not just on-prem versus public cloud versus partner cloud. It really is turning into this distributed hybrid infrastructure that [organizations] are tasked with managing, operating at scale.

William Lam is a senior staff solution architect at VMware. He works with the VMware cloud team within the cloud infrastructure business group. He focuses on cloud native, integration, automation, and operation for the VMware cloud-based, software-defined datacenters across private, hybrid, and public cloud.


Factors leading to the rise in hybrid cloud adoption

Many organizations want the power and flexibility of the cloud but can't refactor all their apps to be cloud-ready. Hybrid cloud might be one answer.
