PALO ALTO, California /3BL Media/ - 2018 marked a very special year for us at VMware. We celebrated our 20th anniversary, and brought together our founders, along with our current leadership, during our employee all-hands meeting, to reflect on the past and celebrate how far we’ve come. We created a timeline that begins when five forward-thinking technologists in 1998, all passionate about creating a new way to compute, came together to form the business.
TechSoup equips communities with the innovative technology they need to build a more equitable planet.
From One to Many In the minds of nonprofits and corporate tech leaders alike — from San Francisco to Sicily, and Sri Lanka to Senegal — TechSoup nourishes social causes through innovation.
In 1987, Daniel Ben-Horin came up with the idea to create a technology mentoring system to help nonprofits and schools. Today, TechSoup enables the social sector with the technology essential for improving lives worldwide.
U.S. wish-granting organization Make-A-Wish America is on a cloud journey to digitally transform the wish-granting experience for children with critical illnesses.
Grant a Wish or Upgrade? Wishes can’t wait for children battling critical illnesses. For these kids, a wish can help them feel better and give them the hope and strength they need to fight harder against an illness.
This is why Make-A-Wish wants to grant the wish of every eligible child – to ensure they experience the impossible. Currently, Make-A-Wish only has the resources to be able to grant wishes to half of the 27,000 children diagnosed with a critical illness.
The word “epic” is often used to describe something historically important, lasting and complex. However, when VMware CEO, Pat Gelsinger uses the adjective, he is also describing his over 24,000 employees and the collective mission they’re working for. Ironically, this is the word that his employees use to describe his leadership as well.
Talented IT pros appreciate the outstanding perks and benefits offered by these top U.S. employers, but it's the team environment that keeps them truly engaged.
Computerworld has ranked VMware among the Best Places to Work in IT 2019. VMware came in at number 12 out of the 49 large organizations (5,000+ U.S. employees) to make the list, which recognizes excellence in career developments, benefits, retention, training and diversity.
At VMware, we’re optimistic about the power of technology to help solve big societal problems and are committed to leading responsibly. One of our key focus areas is about changing our relationship with energy. According to the U.N.’s report, as a society we need to shift 70-85 percent of electricity to renewable energy sources by 2050 to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Data centers are responsible for two percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions—roughly the same as global air travel.
