At VMware, we are extremely proud of these results. Over the past 18 months we have aggressively invested in new and innovative technology and worked to build the strongest EUC team in the market. This report speaks volumes about what our team’s solid vision and determination to exceed customer expectations. I want to thank the EUC team for their commitment and hard work. Without you—none of this would be possible.

IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. The Capabilities score measures vendor product, go-to-market and business execution in the short-term. The Strategy score measures alignment of vendor strategies with customer requirements in a 3-5-year timeframe. Vendor market share is represented by the size of the circles. Vendor year-over-year growth rate relative to the given market is indicated by a plus, neutral or minus next to the vendor name.
