vForum Online Sneak Peek: 5 Empower Digital Workspace Event Spotlights

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and mobile workflows are hallmarks of the modern workforce. Employees expect flexibility, ease of use and the ability to work from anywhere on any device.

To meet these demands, IT must shift from traditional models for application and device management to something new: The digital workspace. But how can IT make this transition?

If you’re asking that question, you’re in luck. That’s what we’ll be talking about on Oct. 18 throughout the Empower Digital Workspace track during vForum Online Fall 2017, our largest online IT conference.


During this free, half-day event, you’ll hear VMware experts and customers discuss what IT organizations need to provide flexible, convenient and end-user-focused digital workspaces. And here’s a perk: You get to attend from the comfort and convenience of your own desk.

Wondering if the Empower Digital Workspace track is for you? We’ve put together a preview of five event spotlights to help you decide.

1. Discover the Power of the Digital Workspace

Workers are on the go and always on. That means they need access to the tools they rely on to get work done from any device, anytime, anywhere. That’s what the digital workspace provides.

During our solution keynote at 10 a.m. PST, “The Power of the Digital Workspace,” we’ll cover how desktop and application virtualization can help you support users to work however and wherever suits them. We’ll also look at a toolkit that simplifies app and access management and offer a new approach to managing devices running Windows 10.

2. Create Password-less User Experiences with Best-in-Class SSO

Single sign-on (SSO) epitomizes the experience that employees now expect in their work environments. But not all SSO implementations are the same.

During the breakout session “Introduction to Mobile SSO in VMware Workspace ONE, Powered by VMware AirWatch” we’ll discuss how Workspace ONE helps you create a seamless, password-less user experience on mobile devices for accessing any type of app (web, native mobile, internal enterprise and virtualized). We’ll also look at how password-less SSO can increase productivity for end users.

3. Save Time & Money Moving VDI to the Cloud

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has been enabling organizations to securely and cost-effectively support the growing mobile workforce over the past few years. During the breakout session “Save Time and Money by Moving VDI to the Cloud,” we’ll examine how VMware Horizon Cloud makes it easier than ever for you to deliver on-premises and cloud-hosted virtual desktops and applications from a control panel in the cloud.

4. Ask the Tough Questions & Get Expert Answers

Have questions about the digital workspace? Want to know about particular products? Or maybe you just enjoy listening to pros talk about their areas of expertise? Whatever the case may be, our “Chat with Experts” sessions have something for everyone:

  • Everything You Wanted to Know About The Power of the Digital Workspace
  • Everything You Wanted to Know About Mobile SSO in Workspace ONE
  • Everything You Wanted to Know About Saving Time and Money by Moving VDI to the Cloud

5. Get Your Hands Dirty in Hands-On Labs

Theory is great, but nothing replaces hands-on experience. And our hands-on labs (HOLs) provide just that. Our Empower Digital Workspace track includes labs on both AirWatch with Workspace ONE and Horizon Cloud.
