At VMware,  we know Government leaders are focusing on IT modernization like never before. For more than two decades, VMware solutions have helped governments  drive their missions and meet constituent expectations for modern, efficient, and cost-effective services. From modernizing government data centers to providing a digital foundation for the future, VMware is proud to support governments as they navigate increasing agency requirements, changing workforce dynamics, and rising cyber threats.

Governments Worldwide are Adapting to a New Normal

Countries, cities, and towns are adapting to a new normal to ensure economic stability and national security while also, supporting constituents, juggling staffing and budgets and defending against cyber threats.

Addressing these challenges requires IT to be agile, responsive and innovative. It’s extremely complex and VMware understands that. David Hewett, Director of Infrastructure Services from the Grant Street Group, states “VMware is a trusted partner and we have been able to design our infrastructure using some best practices in order to set us up for future growth.”

Governments and agencies rely on VMware’s proven solutions to continue operations of essential functions under a broad range of circumstances including all-hazard emergencies as well as natural, man-made, and technological threats and national security. Modernizing IT for greater resilience and serving government workers from anywhere, speeding constituent and agency service delivery well into the future.

Digital Transformation to Improve Mission Outcomes and Exceed Citizen Expectations

With the largest workforce in the world, agencies have had to quickly scale and support a surge in remote workers at home or in the field while ensuring they remain productive and successful.

As a result, VMware is transforming government operations and service delivery. Our SaaS-based digital workspace solutions raise the bar for what it means to support a distributed workforce by providing secure, seamless access to the applications and data government workers need from anywhere, and across any device.

This ensures the productivity of all government employees wherever they work, transforming static computing environments into agile, highly available, and secure digital workspaces delivered on demand. Juliette Baudry, Digital Workspace Director, La Poste understands the importance of improving mission outcomes and exceeding citizen expectations. In an interview with VMware she states, “We know that if we want happy clients, we need to have happy employees, so we have put all our management systems to concentrate all the organization on that specific purpose.”

Empowering Responsive, Accessible and Secure Agencies Around the World

“VMware provides us this cutting-edge cloud technology; we are making investments in network virtualization because Tyler is a very fast-growing city and all of our services are growing along with it, we needed a platform that was able to keep up with us.” Jeremy English, IT Infrastructure Manager, City of Tyler Texas. When critical events do occur, agencies rely on their IT infrastructure for agility, speed and scale. VMware’s multi-cloud solutions enable agencies to support mission objectives through secure, digital-first government operating models across on-prem, cloud and edge environments.

With VMware, governments have the power of choice. We are the only platform that embraces diversity and integration with every major cloud provider and service, including AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and others. As agencies look to speed service delivery, VMware’s app modernization portfolio enables agencies to rapidly and securely build, run and manage new and existing applications.

And with increasing cyber-security threats around the globe VMware knows governments must be more vigilant than ever in the fight against security threats. VMware’s zero-trust approach to security is embedded into every layer of the infrastructure, from the cloud to the applications and devices. This ensures security is intrinsically built-in, not bolted on. Strengthening protection of citizen data and streamlining compliance.

In this defining moment in history, how fast governments move and in which direction they go depends on modern IT. VMware Government Solutions modernize IT to achieve government agency efficiency through digital infrastructure powering the apps, services, and experiences transforming operations and mission delivery. Our interoperable multi-cloud, mobility, networking, and security solutions form a flexible digital foundation that meets agency goals for modern, secure, and resilient IT services and infrastructure.
