The focus of the VMware End-User Computing team is to deliver a Digital Workspace that securely enables anytime, anywhere access to all apps, services, and resources across all devices. In an effort to align teams and resources around this mission, we have made a strategic decision to discontinue our enterprise social networking (ESN) platform, Socialcast.
VMware will announce End of Availability (EOA) of Socialcast effective May 17, 2018. For customers with paid licenses, VMware will continue to support Socialcast through May 17, 2019, and we are working with customers whose platform commitment extends beyond this timeline to provide an alternative solution.
For customers using a FREE version of Socialcast, we plan to decommission our freemium program by August 1, 2018. We encourage you to begin investigating replacement options for your enterprise social collaboration solution and to export all data for your community prior to that date.

We are committed to making this transition as seamless as possible for our customers. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact SocialcastEOL@vmware.com, file a technical support request through VMware Support Portal, or contact your VMware sales representative.
