Broadcom Inc. a global technology leader that designs, develops and supplies semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions, received conditional approval today from the European Commission to complete its acquisition of VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW).
With this decision, the Commission recognizes the importance of this combination in enabling enterprises to accelerate growth and momentum in the multi-cloud ecosystem, and in expanding customer choice and creating more potential for increased innovation and competition.
Broadcom has also received legal merger clearance in Australia, Brazil, Canada, South Africa, and Taiwan, and foreign investment control clearance in all necessary jurisdictions.
While Broadcom believes that its proposed acquisition of VMware will only increase competition and innovation in cloud computing, Broadcom provided the European Commission with a technology access remedy that preserves interoperability, a core principle that would not have changed as a result of this transaction. Broadcom did this to fully address the concerns expressed by the European Commission, and Broadcom welcomes the Commission's decision to accept this access remedy.
Broadcom looks forward to continuing to work constructively with regulators around the world. Broadcom is confident that when regulators conclude their review, they too will see that the combination of Broadcom and VMware will enhance competition in the cloud and benefit enterprise customers by giving them more choice and control over where they locate their workloads. Broadcom continues to expect that the transaction will close in its fiscal year 2023.

Tackle.io, an end-to-end solution for B2B software companies to generate revenue through the cloud, announced today a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help independent software vendors (ISVs) accelerate their Cloud go-to-market (Cloud GTM) journey with AWS. This collaboration provides ISVs the software and services they need to scale with AWS by driving a complete go-to-market motion through co-sell and AWS Marketplace.
Through this collaboration, AWS Partners will be able to capitalize on these opportunities by leveraging the Tackle Cloud GTM Platform for cloud buyer intent data, direct integrations with the AWS Partner Network Customer Engagement (ACE) program, tools for streamlining AWS Marketplace transactions, and integrated capabilities with Salesforce designed to further drive sales productivity and stronger relationships with AWS, leading to faster deal cycles and higher win rates.
"Cloud marketplaces and co-sell have become the center of how ISVs go-to-market with AWS," said John Jahnke, CEO of Tackle. "We continue to innovate to help sellers build their Cloud GTM through a combination of product strategy, business strategy, services, and expert support, all with the goal of driving strategic revenue."
This collaboration will uplift three key goals for ISVs as they scale:
Training and enablement to spin the Cloud GTM flywheel - As Cloud GTM is a relatively new route to market for many ISVs, they benefit from expert guidance on how to build and scale their growth engine with AWS. Tackle's Strategic Services offer a variety of workshops, enablement, coaching, and managed services that delve into the intricacies of operationalizing a co-sell + AWS Marketplace motion, providing proven methodology, expertise, and best practices for participation in AWS Partner programs.
AWS Marketplace excellence to drive co-sell transactions and revenue - ISV sales teams benefit from Tackle's cloud buyer intent data that helps identify the right accounts to co-sell with AWS, tools to streamline the creation, delivery, and tracking of AWS Marketplace private offers, as well as continuous support for new AWS functionality and features including direct AWS Marketplace sales, renewals and expansions, and channel sales via Channel Partner Private Offers (CPPO).
Integration into your system of record to operationalize Cloud GTM - Tackle's Salesforce integration puts both co-sell operations and AWS Marketplace private offers in the hands of the ISV sales team so they can manage each opportunity from creation to co-sell to close all within their system of record to streamline manual processes and increase seller adoption.
"It's great to see AWS and Tackle collaborating toward even better experiences for AWS Partners like us," said Michael Musselman, senior director, Technology & Strategic Alliances at Lacework. "We're excited to leverage Tackle to bring our co-sell and AWS Marketplace motions together and streamline that into Salesforce so our cloud alliance, operations, and sales teams can improve productivity and accelerate deals."
"AWS continues to invest deeply in the AWS Partner experience to provide resources that allow ISVs to grow," said Chris Grusz, managing director, Technology Partnerships at AWS. "Our longstanding relationship with Tackle is a great enhancement of the AWS Partner experience as it directly supports partner scale by accelerating co-sell and AWS Marketplace growth through the Tackle platform and provides ISVs with the latest cloud GTM and co-sell expertise through workshops and coaching."
Tackle is a leading solution built to help software companies generate revenue through a data-driven Cloud go-to-market (Cloud GTM). Tackle works with more than 550 software companies including Auth0, CrowdStrike, HashiCorp, Lacework, New Relic, Snyk, VMware, and many more at every stage—from companies scaling their go-to-market to the largest software companies in the world. We are venture backed by three of the world's top SaaS investors—a16z, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Coatue—to execute on our mission to positively transform the way that software is sold.

ZEDEDA, the leader in edge infrastructure orchestration, today introduced ZEDEDA Edge Application Services, making it easier for customers to instantly gain granular control across all of their edge applications, including their modern AI-based applications.
The number of edge devices, along with the data they produce, is growing exponentially. Gartner® predicts that “by 2025, 75% of data will be generated outside these centralized [data centers or cloud regions] facilities.”1 Edge computing is required to manage and process that data, but the complexity of distributed environments can make it difficult for customers to get started quickly. Enabling access to core services can provide an on-ramp for organizations to benefit from an initial edge use case while also establishing a foundation for future growth, just as was seen previously with cloud adoption.
“Just as we saw occur with the cloud providers in the early days, it is time for the edge market to evolve beyond just infrastructure and begin to offer value-added services in addition,” said Said Ouissal, founder and CEO of ZEDEDA. “Now, with ZEDEDA Edge Application Services, we are able to offer our customers the ability to manage, configure and control their edge applications simply by leveraging the ZEDEDA ecosystem.”
ZEDEDA Edge Application Services are delivered using ZEDEDA’s market-leading edge orchestration solution, which reduces cost while increasing visibility, security and control. The new industry-leading suite of services provides remote access, inventory and configuration management, and Kubernetes management services tailored to the individual needs of each deployment and customer.
ZEDEDA Edge Access: A Simple and Secure Remote Access Solution
The first service in the suite, ZEDEDA Edge Access, enables IT administrators and platform operations teams to instantly access any remote device from any location at any time. It is a simple solution that provides secure access, control and audit tracing for edge deployments.
ZEDEDA Edge Access is secure out of the box, with built-in access controls that provide full encryption of user sessions, and requires no backend configuration or specialized skills. ZEDEDA Edge Access Service eliminates the overhead associated with conventional methods of remote access, providing a streamlined and efficient alternative.
ZEDEDA Edge Access Service also provides granular user control and access, enabling customers to provide third parties secure access to their edge infrastructure. For example, if there is a problem with a specific application, the software vendor or developer can securely access, audit and troubleshoot if needed. This service, and others like it, will ultimately enable ZEDEDA partners and OEMs to generate new revenue streams.
ZEDEDA’s open, distributed, cloud-native edge management and orchestration solution has attracted strategic OEM and customer relationships with Global 500 companies, including Emerson, Rockwell Automation, and VMware. The company continues to quadruple the number of edge nodes it has under management annually, scaling toward a hundred thousand edge nodes and has raised more than $55 million in capital from investors, including Coast Range Capital, Lux Capital, Energize Ventures, Porsche Ventures, Chevron Technology Ventures, Emerson Ventures, Juniper Networks, Rockwell Automation, Samsung Next and EDF North America Ventures.
ZEDEDA makes edge computing effortless, open, and intrinsically secure — extending the cloud experience to the edge. ZEDEDA reduces the cost of managing and orchestrating distributed edge infrastructure and applications while increasing visibility, security and control. ZEDEDA delivers a distributed, cloud-native edge management and orchestration solution, simplifying the security and remote management of edge infrastructure and applications at scale.
