Our Mission: Deliver the Trusted Foundation to Accelerate Innovation

VMware StaffOctober 26, 2021
VMware President Sumit Dhawan, CMO Carol Carpenter and ESG VP Nicola Acutt explore the new realities of our multi‑cloud world and how VMware helps customers accelerate innovation with the "power of and."

The world is re-inventing itself through apps. Whether you call this digital transformation or just progress, a few things are clear.​​

  1. Every organization is trying to innovate faster, to deliver more value at greater speed.​
  2. The responsibility to build a sustainable, equitable and more secure future for all.​

​But the road to transformation is paved with challenges and compromises.​

It’s now a multi-cloud world, and organizations must choose between modernizing what they have or starting from scratch. Between tackling complex security challenges or taking on greater risk. Between giving developers autonomy or ensuring scalable, standardized operations.​​

The "Power of And"

VMware’s mission is to deliver the trusted foundation to accelerate innovation. We do this with VMware Cross-Cloud services for all apps, enabling digital innovation and enterprise control. We think of this as delivering the “power of and.”​

We serve our customers in three main areas. We help them:​

  • Deliver apps on the cloud of their choice and deliver a consistent developer experience.​
  • Manage enterprise apps with freedom and control across multiple clouds and data centers.
  • Empower distributed workforces and protect critical apps and data.​​

In the process, we help customers focus less on making tradeoffs and more on driving innovation, so they can get from wherever they are to wherever they want to be…faster.

Our 2030 Agenda

​At the heart of everything we do—every idea, every product we engineer, every customer we support—lies a responsibility and an opportunity to help make the world a better place. We call this our 2030 Agenda, our vision for delivering three key outcomes: 

  1. Sustainable digital infrastructure supporting the transition to net zero emissions and decarbonization for our customers, supply chain and operations. 
  2. Equitable, unbiased and inclusive access to opportunities for all by enabling people to work where and how they want to work. 
  3. Trust earned from our commitment to resilience, ethics, data privacy, security and transparency.

We know we won’t get there alone. By co-innovating with you—our employees, customers, communities, shareholders and partners—together we will redefine the future.
