VMware’s Bill Rowan: Government-Industry Collaboration Key to IT Modernization

Bill Rowan, VP of Federal Sales at VMware

Bill Rowan, vice president of federal sales at VMware (NYSE: VMW), has said the development of an application designed to help the U.S. Air Force manage aircraft refueling operations in the Middle East reflects the collaboration between the government and industry to advance information technology modernization.

Rowan wrote how the company in partnership with Dell and Pivotal Software (NYSE: PVTL) helped the Air Force come up with a series of interconnected apps and advance the use of automation and Agile processes.

He discussed the advantages of hyperconverged infrastructure to the service branch.

“HCI brings together the compute, storage and networking elements into one platform that’s easy to stand up, deploy and operate. This particular solution allows the Air Force and its Kessel Run Experimentation Lab to deliver a secure DevOps environment that can then be deployed via multiple purpose-built systems within the platform,” he wrote.

“In addition, the Air Force was able to integrate networking and security platforms into the development cycles and segment the various activities.”

Rowan also cited the removal of silos and how the measure helped the service carry out its IT transformation effort.
