VMware Tanzu: The skills, the opportunities and the capabilities

July 31, 2023 || Strategix Technology Solutions

Want to know why companies are turning to VMware Tanzu? Designed to optimise DevOps and create multi-cloud applications and technology stacks that empower organisations and drive speed to market and outcomes, VMware Tanzu is modular, cloud-native and agile. It is also, according to the Forrester report ‘The Total Economic Impact of VMware Tanzu Application Service’, capable of delivering a return on investment (ROI) of 142%.

It is also, found the report, a solution that gets applications over the line at speed, reduces the amount of time spent debugging in application environments, minimises downtime, and reduces security patch deployment. There is also a significantly lower rate of attrition among developers because the platform offers a better user experience.

However, there is dire need for skilled people who have the ability to fully realise the potential of modular, cloud-native application platforms across multiple providers. The former is a challenge - companies need skilled developers. The latter is critical - companies need the agility and flexibility of cloud and the capabilities of cloud-native applications, plus, as McKinsey points out, cloud has the potential to generate $1 trillion in value by 2030.

The dire need to find skills and cloud-native potential within the organisation has led to two distinct trends. The first is captured by the IDC’s trends report for 2023. The company believes that the skills shortage will drive CIO investment into digital platforms and automation solutions designed to increase productivity and expertise. It also believes that developer roles will become more ubiquitous, driven by low-code solutions and in-house skills development.

The second is in the move towards an outsourced talent model. Companies are turning to third-party service providers to bolster their talent pool and to get critical projects over the line at speed. This is reflected in the Gartner technology trends analysis for 2023 which underscores the importance of achieving high business value outcomes while leveraging new practices and approaches.

One such practice is VMware Tanzu, a portfolio of products that give companies the tools and environments they need to modernise, scale, innovate and grow.
