VMware rolled out new innovations in the second full day of its VMworld U.S. event being held this week in San Francisco.
First, the virtualization giant unveiled new End-User Computing services for universal application delivery and device management. They’re designed to help businesses transform processes and deliver a more user- and application-centric experience. The services address the bridge that customers are demanding be formed between the traditional world of client-server technologies to the new world of mobile-cloud technologies.
“A fundamental technology shift is underway as organizations seek to embrace and capitalize on business mobility,” said Sanjay Poonen, general manager and executive vice president, End-User Computing, VMware. “The opportunity for transformative change is massive, and VMware is innovating like never before. Our … VMware End-User Computing product portfolio is uniquely positioned to help customers navigate this transition to the mobile-cloud era.”
To wit, in a new study, VMware found that only 44 percent of companies require employees to work with company-owned devices; many are embracing the bring-your-own device trend. The top three goals business leaders reported in the survey were increasing mobile workforce productivity; streamlining business processes; and reducing the cost of supporting a mobile workforce.
The mass transition to Windows 10 also is having an impact on VMware’s service updates. The company on Tuesday introduced Project A2, which shows the ability to re-define Windows management and pioneer an approach that it considers to be unique in the industry, shifting from a focus on endpoint management to a focus on application management.
A handful of other companies have made notable announcements at VMworld this week. Among them:
