Almost a year has passed since last VMworld, which turned out to be a breakthrough year for VMware Workspace ONE Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). If you recall, we showcased many industry-first capabilities across platforms: OS patch automation for Windows 10; customized macOS onboarding with DEP and bootstrap packages; the first third-party vendor to support management of ChromeOS devices; Android Enterprise support for rugged devices; and more. And of course, we didn’t stop there. The UEM portfolio has continued to expand with new market-leading capabilities that have caught the attention of both customers and industry experts. At EUC Insights this past March, we showcased:
- Workspace ONE AirLift – a radical new approach to transition faster From ConfigMgr to Windows 10 modern management.
- Revamped Mac software distribution with Munki integration;
- Workspace ONE app catalog and Horizon desktops and apps on ChromeOS
- New battery management and Zebra StageNow support for rugged devices
Clearly, the VMware EUC team is deeply invested in making Workspace ONE the most robust unified endpoint management solution in the market. And the evidence is out there. All major EMM/UEM analyst reports that came out since last VMworld – Forrester Wave EMM Q4, 2017; Radicati UEM Market Quadrant; Gartner UEM Magic Quadrant; IDC MarketScape for EMM – have placed Workspace ONE UEM as the clear market leader. Analysts also weren’t shy in calling out the depth Workspace ONE offers for PC management – a space that has been a stronghold for traditional on-premises client management tools for years – and is a key requirement as customers evaluate UEM solutions.
The recognition also validates what we always like to call out – unification for the sake of unification is not a win unless the required management depth on each platform is delivered. Today, Workspace ONE is the only solution in the market that meets customers’ unique use cases and cross-platform requirements. Which brings me to the obvious question: What’s next? What do we have in store for VMworld 2018?
A lot! You will see that we have continued to strengthen the Workspace ONE UEM console to provide IT with a consistent management experience across all modern devices. Powered by Workspace ONE Intelligence, we are making it even easier for IT to manage and secure their end-user computing environment. And, there are plenty of benefits for the end-user too, with new ways to consume devices, company apps, and resources. That said, here are the must-attend Endpoint Management sessions that are filling up fast. Make sure you register for these today!
