Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to this announcement.
Key Factors to Note
VMware’s strong product portfolio, along with robust uptake of cloud and security solutions, is expected to have driven the top line in fourth-quarter fiscal 2023.
VMW’s top line is expected to have gained in the to-be-reported quarter from the ongoing cloud-based digital transformation and the increasing traction witnessed in subscription and software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings.
The subscription and SaaS businesses are being driven by the robust uptake of the VMware Cloud Provider Program, End-User Computing and Carbon Black.
A strong partner base, which includes Amazon, IBM and Google Cloud, is expected to have benefited VMware’s top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter.
