I have known Bernard Golden for years, and it is always a pleasure to chat with him and hear his views about the enterprise IT industry, in general, and, of course, about cloud trends. Over the last decade, I’ve found that interviewing experts and influencers (whether at a conference or remotely) has proven to be both educational and beneficial. This conversation with Golden recently over Skype also gave me lots to think about, especially one month before AWS re:Invent 2017.
The purpose of the interview was to get his takeaways from the VMworld conference in August, which hosted close to 24,000 IT professionals. We discussed the atmosphere at VMworld, VMware’s attempts to stay relevant in the face of AWS’s rapid development, the current state of the ecosystem, and more.
