Just the other day, I was asked, “What brought you to VMware?” I was shocked when I did not have an answer right away. Don’t get me wrong; there were lots of reasons going through my head, including the great culture, integrity of the people and cutting-edge technology, to name a few. However, the question had me thinking. What was the number one reason that brought me here?
Suddenly, the answer occurred to me: The number one reason I came to VMware was our customers and their stories. I knew that if I could find a company where customer success stories were positive and uplifting, the employees and the company would also be successful.
Fast forward as I sit here today on the other side. I am proud to say these reasons have held true. We succeed only when our customers succeed, and that is why it has been our mission to empower our customers to meet their toughest technology challenges. It gives me great reward to listen, collaborate and build with our retail customers and the teams that support them here at VMware.
In fact, this past month we hosted an executive dinner in Columbus, Ohio. A small group of retail IT decision makers had a peer-to-peer discussion on the technology, mobility and security trends within the industry. This was a great opportunity to come together on anything and everything retail, especially occurring on the heels of National Retail Federation’s annual conference.
Top Trends in Retail: IT Leaders Share their Priorities
During our dinner, we heard common themes around the need to transform legacy retail infrastructures into cloud-based infrastructures that support digital strategies. Retail CIOs and IT leaders are shifting to the digital workspace.
On the grand scale, retail technology leaders are looking to enable these five priorities: Continue reading
Following closely on the heels of today’s Apple Special Event, VMware AirWatch announced same-day support for iOS 9.3 in its enterprise mobility management (EMM) console.
AirWatch’s iOS 9.3 highlights include (supervised devices only):
- Streamlined workflows: Enable total customization of a single iPad or a fleet of iOS devices on the home screen layout.
- Easily locate lost devices: Easily locate a missing device, without requiring the device to use an Apple ID or be manually setup with Find My iPhone.
- Shared and personalized devices: In situations where multiple users share the same device, such as education, AirWatch administrators can use the “Show/Hide” restriction in the EMM console to show or hide apps based on the logged in user’s profile.
- App Notification Controls: To tailor the user experience, IT can customize app notification settings for any managed app, such as notifying an end user of a new work order or a student of a assignment.
Dive deeper into all these features and many more on the AirWatch Blog: VMware AirWatch Supports iOS 9.3.

Horizon Air Hybrid-Mode
Virtual desktops have provided undeniable benefits to organizations for years, helping to save money and increase productivity. However, the consistent feedback has been that desktop virtualization solutions are complex to set up and manage, resulting in high capital and operational costs.
We are excited at VMware to change all of that by introducing Horizon Air Hybrid-Mode, a hybrid cloud software service hosted by VMware which enables organizations to deliver virtual desktops and manage applications from on-premises infrastructure, while centrally managing it all from the cloud.
Best of On-Premises and the Cloud
