VMware Explore was a blast en we are proud to have participated in so many sessions!
With a team of 85 ITQ’ers, we attended VMware Explore 2022 in Barcelona, Spain, 7 – 10 November 2022. During these four days, VMware offered many informative sessions, activities and programs that will guide you on your journey to multi-cloud.
Also many ITQ’ers presented sessions during this event and we can imagine that due to the wide range of sessions, you missed one of our sessions or would like to rewatch it. Good news! If you have a VMware Explore Login or a Partner Login, you can (re)watch our sessions.
We greatly enjoy sharing knowledge and we are really proud of participating ITQ’ers. In our previous post we told you which ITQ sessions you could attend. Below we will mention these sessions again with a link to the recordings of the session (if available). Log in with your VMware Explore or Partner account and enjoy watching!

Barry van Kampen participated in this Breakout Session: Security Mindset: Changing The Way You Think About Enterprise Security
People are at the heart of the modern IT organization – designing, deploying, and managing the best enterprise environments in the world. As technology rapidly evolves, so too must the people that manage those technologies. This begins with a changing mindset towards roles, responsibilities, and processes. This opening session for Day in The Life of a Cross-Functional Security War Room starts by exploring the concepts behind mindset and why it plays so heavily into personal, professional, and corporate success. We will identify how Carol Dweck’s work on fixed and growth mindsets map to how organizations either fail or thrive in today’s rapidly changing world of enterprise technology. Hear from a panel of guest speakers on how changing the way you think about network and security can drastically change your own personal career journey.

We will also look at how CBS views the future of application platforms and discuss the move to Kubernetes as a universal runtime for both development and hosting of containerized workloads. Finally, we will discuss how tools such as VMware Tanzu Application Platform are the next step on the CBS journey to deliver a secure, consistent, and optimal developer experience.

After two years of showing the art of the possible of the VMware end-user computing (EUC) space—such as VDI platforms running AI/machine learning, Day 0/1 onboarding, and running VR workloads in VMware Horizon—it’s time for a third edition of this high-energy, demo-packed, real-world showcase session. This year, Johan van Amersfoort will focus on what’s possible when combining VMware Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub with AI, security solutions, and VMware Horizon integration.

Christoph Villnow participated in the Breakout Session: Bring Dev and Ops together with Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations
As organizations seek to modernize workloads, developers look to public clouds to provide a consumable platform and increase agility, and to cutting-edge technologies to deliver applications rapidly. But multi-cloud has presented operators with even more complexity as they must now manage various public and private cloud properties, creating widely inconsistent experiences for operations and development teams. How do operators simplify infrastructure across clouds while ensuring security and compliance to provide a consistent cloud platform? In this session, hear from customers and explore how VMware Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations and CloudHealth can address these challenges and bring a simplified and secure infrastructure across clouds while providing even greater visibility into both the platform and applications for operational insights.
Robert Hellings participated in a Interactive Session: Accelerating Your Career: The Power of Mentoring
We believe that much of the VMware Explore audience will have a business priority in mind to nurture and develop talent in their respective businesses, and that mentoring is an excellent way of facilitating that. GenV is a community within the VMinclusion POD structure within the VMware EMEA organization, designed to help support and nurture early talent in the business. This session will be a panel discussion between colleagues in VMware and a VMware Partner who have experience of both traditional and reverse-mentoring relationships. In this interactive session, we’ll be talking about how make the most of a mentoring relationship and sharing advice with the audience.
