The power of business mobility is driving investment in the next generation of desktop architectures, mobile platforms and, even more importantly, new and rebuilt business processes and business operations designed to make the greatest impact with an increasingly mobile workforce and customer base. VMware is responding to these market needs rapidly.
2015 has been a banner year so far for VMware’s End-User Computing team. Back in March, the team unveiled the next wave of innovation for applications and desktop virtualization with the launch of VMware Horizon 6. The announcement offered up the industry’s most comprehensive desktop and application virtualization solution to deliver and manage any type of enterprise application and desktop, including physical desktops and laptops, virtual desktops and applications, and employee-owned PCs.
A month earlier in February, VMware announced the acquisition of Immidio and introduced a new approach to application delivery and user management called VMware Workspace Environment Management (WEM). Then just two months later— the team was excited to announce the general availability of VMware User Environment Manager. The technology leverages the comprehensive and simple-to-use Immidio platform to “make Citrix work better” by simplifying application management for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environments.
Finally, earlier this month, VMware unveiled Project Enzo – a new hybrid cloud-scale architecture that is designed to combine the economic benefits of cloud-based VMware virtual desktops and application technology, with the simplicity of hyper-converged infrastructure to transform the IT experience.
What do all of these announcements have in common? VMware is helping its partners and customers mobilize the next generation of desktops – desktop computing environments that are truly inspired by mobility – desktops built on a secure, mobile cloud architecture, offering flexibility in delivery and ownership models, with a unified user experience across all devices and giving IT simplified management and unbeatable ROI. VMware aims to help pave the way for IT to evolve past the limitations of legacy desktop architectures, delivering end-user freedom with secure access to services at the lowest cost, whether delivered on-premises or through a hybrid cloud.
