Broadcom.Breaking Down the Myths on Broadcom-VMware

Broadcom announced its intention to acquire VMware last year, a move that would significantly improve VMware’s ability to compete in the multi-cloud market. The Broadcom-VMWare deal is still pending regulatory approval, but if successful, customers could realize an industry-leading multi-cloud offering from VMware. While the proposed acquisition has generated both excitement and skepticism within the industry, it has also generated some myths around the true needs of enterprises when it comes to cloud technology, and what the current reality of the cloud computing market looks like.

Some experts believe it could lead to significant innovation and growth for both companies, while regulators ask whether it potentially reduces competition. The Broadcom-VMWare acquisition would mark a significant development in the tech industry and might have a deep impact on computing platforms that go beyond the cloud, notably on-premises and virtualization.

In our latest research brief, Breaking Down the Myths on Broadcom-VMWare — done in partnership with Broadcom — we explore some of the synergies and potential pitfalls as Broadcom and VMware navigate the acquisition, as well as shed light on some of the myths surrounding the same.
