    This is a news article, but security oriented and perhaps more relevant to this forum than the tech news forum.
    Essentially, how many security apps are too much>

    VMware's CEO has a vision that should terrify the security industry: 'Start getting rid of products'

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/vmware-apos-ceo-vision-terrify-230347378.html

    This stood out to me:

    IMO, stay vigilant with knowledge gained through web sites like TSG.

    While I agree to some degree with what he's saying, I feel there's another reason why he's saying what he's saying. VMware is pushing their NSX technology hard. It's VMware's take on SDN (software defined networking) and their push to establish the other buzz tech buzz words such as software defined data center or SDx.

    Within NSX is a concept called microsegmentation which VMware places security gates at different parts of the VM network as granular as being able to isolate individual VMs. VMware has a huge vested interest to get businesses to adopt NSX as a way to lock in VMware into the data center. VMware is under assault from other technologies such as Openstack and cloud hypervisors not to mention other hypervisor alternatives such as KVM, Acropolis, and Hyper-V.

    CEO's and visions are often like that.
    Market driven.

    Still, interesting to see how that filters down to common users.

    I would say CEO statements many times are driven by what is best for their company and what will keep the lights on.
