Driving the Journey – Mobile Computing

Business transformation through IT transformation

The mobile revolution is here

In today's world, employees must be able to work from any device, anywhere, at any time. And employees want to make their own choices associated with this flexibility. While it took 21 years for PCs to reach 100 million units shipped annually, it took only ten years for smart phones to reach this milestone, and it is projected that tablets will be hit this mark in a mere four years.

Given these statistics and the ever-growing range of device choices, applications and associated security issues, how do companies manage the issue of mobile access in the new age? VMware has employed a number of programs and solutions to meet this challenge and give employees the freedom to work in a flexible and secure environment. Top on this list was developing a virtual desktop environment to provide secure anytime access to data and applications. Pair this with enabling technology and a diverse list of accessible client devices, and the solutions provided today offer unparalleled flexibility. Key to this success includes:

  • Unified management of all desktop, published, SaaS applications
  • Secure provisioning and authentication to SaaS and cloud data storage
  • Access control granularity by location and device
  • Automated workflows
  • Real-time license tracking
  • Consistent user experience across devices
  • Single sign-on
  • Self-service provisioning
