With 62 days to Black Friday and 65 days to Cyber Monday, retail IT leaders shared their top five end-user computing priorities at VMworld U.S. 2016.
“Be Tomorrow.” For some industries, thinking too much about the future is distracting. Not for retailers. Retail brands always look ahead—to the next season, the next big holiday and frankly, to the next big thing to capture shoppers’ attention.
I hosted two VMworld U.S. retail sessions this year—Modernizing and Mobilizing Retail and a retail roundtable—and I can tell you, leading retailers are executing on tomorrow. Well-known brands, such as Coca-Cola and Abercrombie & Fitch, are already piloting innovative new processes and technologies to maintain a competitive advantage. Others are in strategic planning mode.
If I had to pick just a few, the retail buzz at VMworld 2016 was around the following five topics: Continue reading →
We have seen business mobility rapidly evolve from “I need my email on my phone” to “I need access to all my apps, data, and services, from any device, anywhere.” While end users have demanded that access, IT concerns about security, compliance, and complexity have made implementation of this goal difficult until now.
Earlier this year, VMware surveyed 1,021 IT professionals, influencers and decision-makers, from small businesses to large enterprises across more than 10 industries. We asked all of them: What is your long-term end-user computing (EUC) strategy for the cloud?
VMworld 2016 rages on this week, with 20,000-plus IT experts descending on Las Vegas to talk software-defined data center, end-user computing (EUC) and next-gen digital workspaces. Even more took to social media, sharing the product news and thought leadership highlights on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Here are our 13 top tweets from #VMworld. Did yours make the list?
Yesterday was a huge day for VMware End-User Computing (EUC) at VMworld 2016. On the mainstage in Las Vegas, Sanjay Poonen—VMware EUC executive vice president and general manager—shared breaking digital workspace news and incredible customer stories.
It’s that time again, when 25,000-plus people come together to take part in VMworld. If you have not been to the show before, it is definitely packed with great Hands-On Labs, technical sessions and lots and lots of new announcements.
As part of this fanfare, I wanted to tell you about a few announcements that focus on our very own VMware Horizon portfolio of desktop and application virtualization products and services.
All the Horizon announcements are specifically designed to help organizations do three things:
Improve user experience to support more use cases. Think Windows 10 migrations, 3D developers, remote office workers, clinicians and more;
Simplify how end users, apps and desktops are managed and delivered; and
Drive down acquisition and day-to-day management costs for new and existing customers.
VMworld has always served as the launch pad for new technologies. Today, VMware End-User Computing (EUC) hits the VMworld stage in Las Vegas to share new innovations that drive the digital workspace forward—now and into the future. Continue reading →
I’ve been at VMworld since Saturday, and I’ve already found that I don’t get many chances to talk about VMware Workspace ONE. It’s not for lack of interest, but rather the opposite. Every time I am in a group of customers and colleagues and the Workspace ONE topic comes up, some VMware employee breaks out their phone, opens their Workspace ONE catalog and can’t stop talking about:
How they don’t need tokens.
How they can book travel with their phone, create a meeting and find a conference room.
How much easier it is to just get things done.
After years of planning, it is incredibly rewarding to not be the one doing the talking. I get to see, hear and experience the value of Workspace ONE as it touches my coworkers from their perspectives on a daily basis. It is exactly that excitement that we want all of our VMware customers to experience. Yes, Workspace ONE closes security holes that have been around for years and simplifies operations. But the real win is when IT is seen as adding value to the employee experience. That always makes business sense in this increasingly complex and competitive business world.
This week, we continue the Workspace ONE journey with two announcements that speak to removing the friction common in most end-user computing (EUC) environments today.Continue reading →
VMworld 2016 is officially underway and the excitement from customers, partners and employees is palpable. With more than 25,000 attendees, hundreds of sessions and great networking activities, organizations are getting fully equipped to be_Tomorrow. Continue reading →

This year at VMworld, you can make your impact on the VMware EUC products of the future.
I will personally host a series of one-on-one design partnership workshops with a small set of customers. The goal is to identify and begin working directly with our customers who want to get involved in shaping our next generation of products. As a design partner, you will get to preview and provide early feedback on our products and solutions before they are developed. This is your opportunity to help us align our products to your organizations exact needs!
We will also consider your organizations unique processes, challenges and goals as we design new solutions for the market. At this time, we are looking to focus our conversations around VMware Workspace ONE Administrative experience, Workspace ONE Client and Horizon Air.
