This IDC Perspective provides an executive overview of VMware's evolving cloud management portfolio, covering products and services offered under the vRealize, CloudHealth by VMware, and Tanzu brands. These solutions focus on a range of cloud management use cases specific to VM and cloud-native workloads running on premises and in multiple public clouds. The document also provides a point of view on factors technology buyers should consider when evaluating future investments in VMware cloud management solutions."VMware's work to create a unified cloud management portfolio to consistently support VMs and containers, whether they are deployed on-premises or across multicloud platforms, paves the way for customers to evolve their computing and application architectures at a rate and pace that make sense for their specific organizational priorities," explains Mary Johnston Turner, IDC's research vice president for Cloud Management. "Given the current worldwide economic downturn, many VMware customers are likely to value the ability to gradually evolve internal skills and processes while using the same people and management platforms to control existing applications side by side with next-generation cloud-native resources."
