Ahmed Auda, Senior Managing Director, VMware MENA
We saw strong success on the recent VMware Go Ahead event in Dubai, driving momentum for Middle East organizations to undergo cloud, virtualization, and mobility journeys.
With our newly-launched report showing 68 percent of Middle East business leaders believe that technology management is shifting from IT departments to lines of business, the need for innovative thinking and organization-wide digital strategies has never been more urgent.
Held under theme of “Defy Expectations, Transcend Boundaries!”, Go Ahead hosted senior executives from across industry verticals. They discussed, debated, and exchanged best practices on digital strategies, leading change management, and leveraging new releases of VMware solutions.
In particular, attendees heard from solutions experts from VMware MENA, Intel Security, and IBM on topics such as managing enterprise IT in the multi-cloud era, networking and security for cross-cloud, VMware NSX with Intel technology, accelerating hybrid cloud adoption, hyper-converged infrastructure, simplifying and securing the consumer experience, and securing the cloud.
During the breaks, attendees experienced the latest solutions from VMware World Europe from our “One Cloud, Any Application, Any Device” architecture, including new releases of vSphere, Virtual SAN, and vRealize solutions. We look forward to continuing the momentum in 2017!
