VMware is one of the "exciting" stars of the IT automation era reshaping the technology landscape with its multicloud IT automation portfolio, said Glenn O'Donnell, senior vice president and research director of Forrester, a top IT market researcher, in a keynote address at XChange 2018."I would say in IT automation, one of the more exciting vendors is a vendor that some people think is not exciting, and that's VMware," said O'Donnell in a response to a question on which vendors are driving the most IT automation. "VMware has really jumped on cloud automation in a big way. It doesn't own that market--nobody owns that market, it's a pretty fierce, competitive world. But VMware is certainly one of the more powerful players in this business for IT automation."It is VMware's multicloud prowess in a hybrid cloud world that is making a difference in IT automation, said O'Donnell.
