Joel Steacy

Software Defined Enterprise Strategist
VMware

As the concept of Software Defined takes over the enterprise, Joel’s role at VMware has evolved from focusing on automation, management and financial insight to taking a more holistic approach to helping clients become brokers of services. In his role as software-defined enterprise strategist, Joel helps customers understand, plan and execute on solutions like network visualization, hybrid clouds and hyper-converged infrastructures, positioning IT as a partner with the business rather than as a cost center.

Before joining VMware, Joel worked with Hitachi Data Systems, Metafore and IBM as a storage specialist, and with Calgary-based Pivot Data Centres, which was subsequently acquired by Rogers.
