Bringing the Consumer Experience to the Enterprise
End-user provisioning and management is key to unlocking the opportunities of the cloud, and success in this area will come from bringing the consumer experience into the enterprise. For example, for social networking sites, no training is required because the technology is intuitive. In the enterprise, however, all too often user interfaces are much harder to navigate.
We are challenged in IT to do everything faster. Leveraging the kind of interfaces people already know from their consumer life is one way to accelerate cycles. Yet most enterprise applications don't come that way. We must migrate toward a more consumer experience in the enterprise, provide it on a mobile device and enable users to move seamlessly between devices.
See our top case studies below, or visit the Resource Library for more on solutions that offer companies the ability to provide users with a comfortable yet secure combination of devices of their choosing, accessible anytime, anywhere.
Latest Case Study: VMware Mirage Streamlines IT for Upgrades and Desktop Management
We used VMware® Mirage™ when faced with the task of efficiently upgrading users to Windows 7 while simultaneously improving image and desktop management. Mirage provides centralized image management for Windows desktops with enhanced levels of backup and OS migration capabilities. It also delivers an easy way to save on costs while delivering needed services—all with minimal business disruption.
Horizon Workspace—One Desktop, Many Devices, Streamlined IT
In the post-PC era, people use multiple screens during the workday—the typical worker uses up to 20 applications daily. VMware IT faced the challenge of delivering reliable access while ensuring that they enforced IT governance. Workspace Portal delivers users with access to the data and applications they need from any device through a private cloud. This ensures the security of company information and gives users all the apps they need through a single URL, eliminating multiple passwords.
Driving Lower IT Costs and a Better End-User Experience with Horizon (with View)
VMware needed to get VMware Horizon™ (with View) into production in order to have real-world use cases for general availability and also to support the rollout of its Horizon suite of applications. VMware also wanted to ensure that the process of upgrading Horizon (with View) was simple. The company put its own IT organization through exactly what the customer will go through, and asked them to take careful notes.
