VMware's Aileen Black on virtualization
Thursday - 5/17/2012, 7:14pm EDT
Black said VMware's software is installed in nearly every Cabinet-level agency and in 97 percent of Fortune 500 companies.
Over the past few years, government IT executives have become increasingly innovative, Black said, rivaling their private-sector peers. The inspector general of the IRS recently noted more than $10 million in savings from server virtualization and projected another $7 million in additional savings.
"Just think about that — if the average agency was able to do that, a lot of this deficit issue would kind of go away," Black said.
