The DEX Show | Podcast #24 – Desktop Virtualization and Hybrid Work w/ Spencer Pitts (VMware)
January 5, 2022

“We need to take a step back and think about all of the different personas that IT traditionally has looked after.” — Spencer Pitts

With the proliferation of hybrid work, the focus of IT needs to change.

As opposed to the traditional approach of looking inwards toward tech, IT now needs to look outwards towards people.

In fact, it’s the only path forward if IT is to remain relevant.

In this episode, we’re talking with Spencer Pitts, Digital Workspace Chief Technologist at VMware, and Andy Philp, Principal Product Marketing Manager at Nexthink, about how advances in desktop virtualization have enabled this brave new hybrid world we live in today.

We discuss:

  • The challenges of the hybrid workplace
  • How hybrid is evolving
  • The implications of DEX on VDI
  • What the workplace will look like in five years
