2017: The Year of the Digital Workspace & User Experience Technology


It’s incredible the amount of mobile innovation and digital transformation we’ve witnessed in 2016. How will 2017 top it?

I believe we’ll see these five business and IT trends:

  1. A new market will emerge called the digital workspace.
  2. Senior IT leaders will take on more digital innovation roles.
  3. IT will win workers over with better user experiences.
  4. Bring your own (BYO) device, apps and everything else will persist.
  5. A new class of digital employees will expand.

Let’s dive in.

Introducing VMware Workspace ONE Essentials

As we look back over the last year, it’s been an incredible ride for VMware’s End-User vmware workspace one digital workspaceComputing team. We introduced VMware Workspace ONE in February to transform the delivery of secure digital workspaces to workers on any device anywhere. The feedback has been extremely positive, with organizations like American Red Cross using Workspace ONE to enable consumer-simple productivity and enterprise-secure business mobility.

We also learned a ton about the types of digital workspaces workers want and the capabilities businesses need to ensure their success. One area of feedback is a desire for a lower priced edition of Workspace ONE that solves for simpler use cases. In these scenarios, users need to access web apps and public native mobile apps from personal devices. These bring-your-own (BYO) use cases do not require device or mobile application management.

To answer this need, today we introduced a new member of the Workspace ONE family: Workspace ONE Essentials. Continue reading

5 New Tools & Tech to Secure BYOD for the Digital Workspace

Secure BYOD VMware digital workspaceFor those of us who have turned technology into a career, the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) concept is now almost over-discussed. But here’s the *fun* new BYOD reality for those of us in the enterprise tech world::

The architecture you deploy today needs to securely enable devices that have not yet been invented.

Here’s the good news, the light at the end of the security tunnel: This road is quickly becoming less bumpy for those ready to re-think legacy computing strategies and turn to the digital workspace. To secure BYOD and future-proof your end-user computing (EUC) strategy, new innovations were launched this year to make secure BYOD a reality.

Here are the five new digital workspace tools and tech innovations you need to secure BYOD: Continue reading

What’s New in the Workspace ONE App 2.0?

vmware workspace one frost and sullivan award 1We released the VMware Workspace ONE app in February. The Workspace ONE app provides a convenient digital workspace to users across iOS, Android and Windows 10 devices. Users no longer have to remember individual app names and URLs. They simply launch the Workspace ONE app to find the apps they are entitled to. Users can also launch web apps, remote apps/desktops or download mobile apps from the Workspace ONE app catalog. The February release worked very well for VMware AirWatch managed devices, but didn’t solve bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and unmanaged device use cases.

Now, we’ve released the 2.0 version of the Workspace ONE app with exciting new features that help drive BYOD adoption in an organization. Let’s look at these features in detail.

3 Most-asked Questions about Workspace ONE & the Digital Workspace

It has been an amazing month since we first introduced Workspace ONE to the market, and I couldn’t be more excited. Nearly every day, I am having fantastic discussions with customers about the fundamental changes happening among people, apps and devices that are putting more pressure than ever on IT to serve the business. There are probably three recurring themes I hear in these discussions:

1. It seems so simple. Why couldn’t I do that before?digital workspace one webinar cta

That is certainly our goal: Make it look simple. See the app, open the app. In reality, there is a lot of complexity under the covers. The IDaaS industry was developed around a set of standards built for public web apps. Virtual app hosting and delivery was created to solve desktop security and management challenges, and mobile standards have been evolving rapidly in just a few short years. Pulling together an extensible, plug-able catalog infrastructure and then solving all of the SSO experience, email, messaging and DLP and configuration challenges has required some of the best minds across the industry, all of whom came to VMware to build the ultimate experience for the digital workspace.

Driving Better Education Through Innovative IT | EDUCAUSE 2015

By Tim Merrigan, Vice President SLED Sales, VMware

It’s a pleasure to post from EDUCAUSE 2015, where we’re just starting Day Two. Each year, the State, Local and Education (SLED) team at VMware looks forward to this event as the pinnacle in higher education IT, where our education industry colleagues gather to learn, reflect and engage with one other.

We meet and talk with many of our customers at this event each year, and it’s always exciting to hear how they are meeting the challenges of funding cuts and rising costs with innovative new solutions.

They’re leveraging new technology to provide access to curriculum for new students and faculty in online or distributed campus environments on an ever-widening range of personal devices, and all the while safeguarding personal and financial information.

For example, this September at the University of Wisconsin, the faculty introduced a digital lab environment for students that gave all students in the program the same desktop experience, no matter where they were physically located. The new program gave each student access to the same resources, as well as the ability to interact and collaborate with professors and other students throughout the process. And the university, alongside its integrator partner Gantech, accomplished this in just 6 weeks. Wisconsin’s existing VMware Horizon VDI platform made it even faster to roll-out the digital lab environment via Horizon Air, running on vCloud Air.

Then there’s the Rochester Institute of Technology, Continue reading
