As the past several months have illustrated, the need to provide all workers the option to work remotely is no longer a “nice to have” but a “must-have.” The fastest, securest, and most agile way to address telework needs now while simultaneously setting agencies up for future success is through software-defined infrastructure.
The response to the coronavirus has spotlighted agencies’ need for secure, software-defined IT that can support existing and future technologies simultaneously. As agencies move forward and look to lay a groundwork for secure, agile IT in the future, software-defined enterprises are an effective way for them to do just that. Discover how VMware solutions modernize agency IT for increased business resiliency, ensuring that service delivery to constituents can remain the priority for the federal government and help create a future ready workforce.
This eight-point checklist covers VMware Future Ready™ Workforce Solutions for optimizing the remote employees’ extended network for improved user experience, performance, and security.
There’s no doubt that the data-driven era has fundamentally
changed the world. The speed of business has changed.
Consumer expectations have changed. The demand for rich
digital experiences and instant information access — driven by
real-time applications — has shifted enterprise priorities.
Business demands now drive IT and OT.
But IT can’t seem to move fast enough to keep up with the
business. Resources are either underutilized or not agile enough
to meet business needs. This gap between business demands
and IT capabilities is increasingly a point of friction.
With data increasingly coming from outside the core data center,
harnessing all that information will require stretching your
imagination to the edge.

Preventing data from being compromised is ideal, but blocking every threat can impede workflows and productivity. It doesn’t have to be this way. This infographic shows how to prevent future data security incidents while keeping teams productive.
The short history of cloud computing has been interesting and uneven. Today, a more flexible and agile vision of the cloud is emerging – one that will help agencies solve problems and control costs while adhering to strict standards of privacy and security. This new cloud approach offers developers and operation teams the consistency and portability to focus on developing solutions rather than reskilling. VMware® Cloud FoundationTM provides the consistent infrastructure that enables agencies to quickly scale, migrate workloads securely, and decouple applications from infrastructure. With VMware, agencies can leverage existing investments and drive their cloud roadmaps at their own pace.

You know why your agency needs a virtualized network. You know you won’t be able to deliver, improve, or fix user experiences rapidly enough to keep up with their needs—or your agency’s own developers, most likely. But you also know that your agency’s leaders may not understand all this. Whether the key decision-maker is technical or not, here is a guide to providing the budget and mission rationale for virtual networking.
This paper examines how VMware and Intel have worked together to deliver network virtualization capabilities that leverage software and hardware innovation to provide a wide range of business and operational benefits to enterprises that need their networks to be every bit as agile, flexible, secure, and elastically scalable as their other infrastructure supporting the business resiliency, availability and performance of increasingly valuable applications and workloads.
