App modernization has played an outsize role in many organizations’ digital transformation journeys throughout 2020. In fact, 70 percent of IT leaders indicated that they’ve prioritized app modernization efforts because of the pandemic, according to a September 2020 thought leadership paper commissioned by VMware in which Forrester Consulting surveyed more than 200 global enterprise CIOs and SVPs of IT. Faced with the demands of enabling remote workforces and maintaining reliable uptime, the need for modern, cloud native applications came to the forefront.
Against this backdrop, VMware Tanzu has hit several milestones, simplifying a complex ecosystem of technologies that underpin app modernization. In 12 months, we’ve seen strong customer traction, with the Tanzu customer count growing over 25 percent year over year, including the addition of organizations such as Dish and the United States Space Force. We’ve forged technology and services partnerships to deliver customer impact, both on-premises and in the cloud, while expanding our Master Services Competency—ensuring future customers derive value from the Tanzu portfolio.
Tanzu is helping organizations progress along their entire app modernization journey, across infrastructure and applications. Now, a year into its existence, VMware Tanzu is announcing:
VMware Tanzu Advanced edition is now available. Tanzu Advanced simplifies and secures the container lifecycle, enabling teams to accelerate the delivery of modern apps across multiple clouds—a real DevSecOps approach.
VMware Pivotal Labs is now called VMware Tanzu Labs. Services delivered by Tanzu Labs bring deep expertise to modernize legacy apps, build new apps, and evolve DevOps platforms.
SpringOne 2021 will be held virtually September 1–2, 2021. Sign up for updates about SpringOne 2021 registration and the call for proposals now.

In the year ahead, the Tanzu portfolio will help our customers transform their data centers, embrace DevSecOps, and adopt modern app patterns.
