End Users Win With VMware End-User Computing Solutions
Regardless of the business—not-for-profit, government, or enterprise—the challenge is the same: how to deliver applications and services securely and efficiently to end users.
The American Red Cross relies on a web-based portal to deliver applications to its users. Dave Bullamore, vice president, IT end-user services, says, “When you log in, you’re interfacing with the identity manager, and once you’re there, you’re working with the VMware Horizon Enterprise Suite. We’re using VMware App Volumes to deliver different application stacks to the desktop.”
Joe Hamblin, director of emerging platforms, IT enterprise services, Sprint, has been working with VMware AirWatchⓇ for the past five years to deliver mobile services to its company-owned stores and dealers. “Now we’re taking the next journey,” he says. “We enable our employees to be more productive, and we’re leveraging VMware Horizon Air to help us accomplish those things. We see the opportunity for the traditional desktop world and the mobile world to come together to deliver a converged environment. It’s going to be a great experience for our users.”
For Preston Teal, senior IT business analyst, Mecklenburg County, the challenge is in enabling users to get to their applications quickly and easily. “We don’t want them to have to log in to this, and log into that,” he says. “It’s about single sign-on; it’s about understanding identity, and following that identity as the person is using the device. That’s powerful to me.”
