Revenue was up more than 12 percent from the previous year. VMware had a very strong financial Q2 in 2017, beating expectations and seeing significant increases in license bookings in both the end user computing (EUC) and software-defined storage (SDS) spaces. VMware reported yesterday that its second quarter revenue was $1.9 billion, a jump of 12.2 percent from the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP net income was $489 million, or $1.19 per share.
End-user computing (EUC) is a primary focus of VMware's, from virtual desktop infrastructure products to cloud computing. Sumit Dhawan, GM of VMware's EUC group, answered questions about the group's vision and goals. Q: How has the Dell acquisition changed things regarding VMware End-User Computing (EUC)? Are there different/changed EUC priorities as a result of the integration? A: Our vision and priority of helping customers with their digital transformation journey remains lunchanged.
Unnecessarily complicated login processes demonstrate how far there still is to go. I've been thinking a lot about end-user computing (EUC) these days, for a couple of reasons. For one thing, we feature a Q&A in this issue with Sumit Dhawan, the Big Cheese when it comes to VMware's EUC efforts. As you'll see, VMware is all over this field, in multiple ways. The other reason is my wife. She's an OB-GYN who's been in the industry for 28 years now.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
