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:

The Internet of Things (IoT) Drives a Fascinating Pace of Business Innovation
Companies across industries are using IoT to both differentiate their products and improve operations. For example, automakers are offering customers IoT-based enhancements to product safety and customer experience. Predictive maintenance enabled by sensor based analytics ensures that issues are caught well before highway failures. Over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates allow customers to enjoy the latest features without their cars ever leaving the garage. Manufacturing companies are rushing to develop IoT-based smart factories that increase yield. Real-time failure identification allows manufacturing to discard parts quickly without expending extra resources in their completion.
It is a small wonder that companies are rapidly embarking on this path. The value to consumers is too compelling—and the benefits to the businesses are equally convincing. Continue reading →
