Interview with Bask Iyer, CIO and GM, IoT at VMware
What is your primary role as CIO? And as General Manager of the Internet of Things?
It comes down to three things. First, it is the traditional CIO role to keep what’s running, running: I’m in charge of protecting strategic assets, IT structure, security, and so on. Second, we use our own products to make sure they run and scale at the right level for our customers. Third, as part of the executive team, I have a customer view. The staff asks, “Would you buy this product, would it have value?” I am typically the voice of the customer on the executive staff.
As GM of IoT, I’m watching the current trends and see a big avalanche of IoT coming. In fact, in our last few meetings, I’ve been saying that the avalanche is actually here and what VMware should do about it.
