As Companies evolve and navigate through these current times, we start to see some distinct phases and thinking emerging for IT. Responds, Reflect and Rethink.

To be able to truly realise the benefits of a digital workplace, employers need to understand and enable anytime, anywhere and any device access. This must be done without exposing themselves to greater risks. This requires more than access to the cloud or a mobile working policy.

In this series on ‘The New Normal’ VMware will explain how Workspace One can help provide employees with what they need through these phases and the main considerations to take into account now and going forward too.


Andy Philp, Head of EMEA Solution Product Marketing for Digital Workspaces, Spencer Pitts, EMEA Chief Technologist for Digital Workspaces and Charles Barratt, our EMEA Digital Workspace Domain Architect, will discuss the challenges, opportunities and solutions in new podcast series. Join them for each episode as they look at the 4 steps needed to enable digital workspaces.
