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 →

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.
a newly introduced element or factor that changes an existing situation or activity in a significant way.
When Pokémon Go launched, they had over 100 million daily active users worldwide—within six days! This was game-changing for augmented reality. And game-changers don’t come around every day.
Innovative technology leaders must tackle things in a new way, see things that others don’t and demonstrate an uncanny ability to execute on their vision. This almost always means getting rid of the old way of doing things in favor of something new and much, much better.
We are excited to highlight our most innovative customer stories in a new series: #GameChangers.Continue reading →
Microsoft launched its Windows 10 Anniversary Update a few weeks ago, and the massive Windows 10 benefits for end-user computing (EUC) just got even bigger.
Windows 10 was the catalyst for what we in the EUC industry waited for years to finally achieve. Windows 10 is such a big deal for our industry, because it practically eliminates the need for desktop and mobile silos in IT. You don’t need one silo for Windows PCs, another for mobile and another for apps. All of this comes together in one management structure with Windows 10.
We here at VMware call this unified endpoint management (UEM). What that means is a single, dynamic operating environment for ALL devices and ALL apps, with security and identity deeply integrated throughout it all. Windows 10 is a huge part of that next-generation unified architecture.
Here are the three game-changing Windows 10 benefits for UEM:
