VMware Embraces Open Source in a Bet to Attract Developers

By: Al GillenGroup Vice President, Software Development and Open Source


This IDC Market Perspective takes a detailed look at the VMware Tanzu Community Edition and the potential impact that this initiative may have on the company.

"VMware is no stranger to making products free to use, and the company is no stranger to open source software. However, this is the first time the company has combined those two competencies together at this level of refinement," said Al Gillen, group vice president, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "In this case, VMware is making the right move, engaging with developers in their comfort zone, by making high-quality cutting-edge technology available for test and use, knocking down barriers to entry at the development end of shops that may or may not already be VMware friendly."
