From protecting patient information to tracking patient check-ins to sending updates to families in real-time, technology is helping the healthcare industry work simpler and smarter. With secure, immediate access to accurate information, providers can now make point-of-care decisions from anywhere. The result is a radically improved quality of care and life. Read the illustrated piece on The Bridge for a glimpse into the inner workings of technology in a virtual hospital setting.

Transforming Hybrid Cloud Security for Mobile Users [VIDEO]

NSX Data Center HazardToday VMware unveiled a new solution that minimizes security threats from users and mobile devices inside the hybrid cloud. Through the combination of the VMware NSX network virtualization platform with AirWatch EMM and/or VMware Horizon desktop virtualization, VMware provides IT administrators the ability to micro-segment the data center network. This grants users specific network access to the exact resources within the data center to which they are authorized. The ability to micro-segment the network in this way was previously neither feasible nor economical before the introduction of VMware NSX. Now with this combined solution, IT can begin to address the problem of over-provisioned access to data center resources, which is common with traditional VPN gateway access. Noah Wasmer, vice president of product management and CTO, End-User Computing at VMware, explains more in this video:

To learn more about these solutions coming together to address network security and access for mobile users, visit the VMware and AirWatch booth #1315 next week at RSA 2015, April 19-23.

One year later, VMware’s Airwatch acquisition continues to transform mobility

By 2020, “half of the world’s population will be connected through mobile devices,” predicted Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona earlier this month. Smartphones arespreading faster than any other digital technology, including the personal computer. And mobile computing has become the new PC because it delivers a unique, personal experience to every user.

Mobile devices, combined with the efficiencies of the hybrid cloud, make it possible for businesses to deliver personal customer experiences to billions of people using wireless technologies that span the globe. Scale is vitally important in business, so companies that get their mobile apps into the hands of consumers and employees before their competitors do will have the advantage.

There’s an unfortunate side effect, however. The proliferation of mobile devices is resulting in massive headaches for enterprise IT departments. Managing thousands upon thousands of employee devices — not to mention deploying apps at such a large scale and across multiple platforms — is an immensely complex task involving seemingly infinite security and privacy implications.

Telco 2015 – NFV and the Path to the Telco Cloud | #MWC15

Back in March, Barcelona hosted the world’s greatest mobile event: Mobile World Congress. AirWatch Connect, presented at Mobile World Congress, provided attendees with a business-focused experience, including sessions, certifications, and solution expos focused on business mobility. The AirWatch community of industry leaders, business innovators and technology experts at Mobile World Congress joined attendees to collaborate on mobile initiatives, challenges and best practices, with the goal of driving business innovation.

On the second day of the show, various members of the EMC Federation joined Heavy Reading’s Caroline Chappel for an expert panel on Telco in 2015. Panelists John Roese (Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Ocer, EMC), Shekar Ayyar (Sr. Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Development, VMware) and Sundeep Madra (VP Product, Data and Mobile, Pivotal) came together to discuss NFV and the path to the telco cloud.

Nevro Uses Cloud Technology to Tailor the Right Patient Solutions

It’s easy to think of the cloud as nothing more than a neat place to store files and share documents, but it actually impacts nearly every aspect of our lives — and to some, our bodies and personal health may depend on it.

Nevro is a prime example: The Menlo Park-based manufacturer produces implantable devices that treat and monitor chronic pain (with an emphasis on the lower back), and collect data about each patient. But all of that information needs to go somewhere, and as you might suspect, Nevro found that the cloud is the best way to collect and manage that data.

Another Mobile World Congress Down! | #MWC15

Sanjay HeadshotBy Sanjay Poonen, EVP and GM, End-User Computing, VMware

Last week, dozens of our VMware and AirWatch team members traveled to Barcelona for Mobile World Congress – the industry’s leading mobility event that drew together over 93,000 industry leaders, business innovators and technology experts for four jam-packed days of excitement. This was my second Mobile World Congress with VMware, and I have to say that our joint VMware and AirWatch presence at the event this year was truly impressive. We won an award, made some huge announcements and really made a splash with highlights including:

  • Main-stage keynote from Pat Gelsinger focused on “the New Mobile Identity” and why business mobility is such a priority for enterprises today. During his talk, Pat spotlighted VMware vCloud for NFV, an integrated Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) platform that will combine our virtualized compute, networking, storage and management solutions with integrated OpenStack support.
