With 62 days to Black Friday and 65 days to Cyber Monday, retail IT leaders shared their top five end-user computing priorities at VMworld U.S. 2016.

vmworld recap 5

“Be Tomorrow.” For some industries, thinking too much about the future is distracting. Not for retailers. Retail brands always look ahead—to the next season, the next big holiday and frankly, to the next big thing to capture shoppers’ attention.

I hosted two VMworld U.S. retail sessions this year—Modernizing and Mobilizing Retail and a retail roundtable—and I can tell you, leading retailers are executing on tomorrow. Well-known brands, such as Coca-Cola and Abercrombie & Fitch, are already piloting innovative new processes and technologies to maintain a competitive advantage. Others are in strategic planning mode.

If I had to pick just a few, the retail buzz at VMworld 2016 was around the following five topics:   Continue reading

VMware Workspace ONE Reference Architecture: Validated Integration Design White Paper

We have seen business mobility rapidly evolve from “I need my email on my phone” to “I need access to all my apps, data, and services, from any device, anywhere.” While end users have demanded that access, IT concerns about security, compliance, and complexity have made implementation of this goal difficult until now.

VMware Workspace ONE combines identity and mobile-device management to

  • Provide simple and secure access to all of the applications, data, and services that employees need on their personal or corporate-issued devices
  • Meet IT security requirements

The VMware Workspace ONE Reference Architecture: Validated Integration Design white paper provides a reference architecture for implementing the Workspace ONE product. The reference architecture is based on key business requirements such as enabling business mobility for employees, and identifies use cases, such as mobile knowledge workers.

What’s New on the VMware Horizon

It’s that time again, when 25,000-plus people come together to take part in VMworld. If you have 8148_VM_EUC_BREAKOUT_Blog_InText_600pxnot been to the show before, it is definitely packed with great Hands-On Labs, technical sessions and lots and lots of new announcements.

As part of this fanfare, I wanted to tell you about a few announcements that focus on our very own VMware Horizon portfolio of desktop and application virtualization products and services.

All the Horizon announcements are specifically designed to help organizations do three things:

  1. Improve user experience to support more use cases. Think Windows 10 migrations, 3D developers, remote office workers, clinicians and more;
  2. Simplify how end users, apps and desktops are managed and delivered; and
  3. Drive down acquisition and day-to-day management costs for new and existing customers.

Let’s take a look at what the Horizon team announced at the show. Continue reading
