Charles Fitzgerald is a platform strategist at VMWare.
Previously, Fitzgerald was Microsoftâ€™s primary spokesperson for Microsoft Java back in 1996. Ever since, heâ€™s been helping Microsoft position itself against its enterprise competitors. On Fitzgeraldâ€™s Platformonomics blog, he skewered regularly IBM, Sun, Oracle, Google and other Microsoft competitors.
Most recently, Fitzgerald was focused on explaining Microsoftâ€™s Software+Services strategy to the press and analyst masses. While he was mostly a behind-the-scenes strategist, Microsoft trotted out Fitzgerald whenever the company needed to justify a new strategy/product plan or set the big-picture scene for company critics.
