By : |August 29, 2013 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: At VMworld 2013, VMware, Inc., unveiled new capabilities and partnerships, where the company believes it will further simplify it’s ability to support the growing mobile workforce.

The combination of new desktop-as-a service, VMware Ready smartphones, a growing community of desktop and mobile partners, and integrated device and workspace management reinforces VMware Horizon Suite as one of the industry’s most comprehensive and integrated platform to enable an increasingly mobile workforce, said VMware in a press release.

“VMware Horizon Suite offers a cost-effective and secure transition to the mobile-cloud era for organizations struggling to modernize their infrastructure,” said Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware.

“VMware is the only company that offers a comprehensive end-user computing platform with highly integrated management capabilities to make managing disparate users, devices and operating systems simple and effective,” added Poonen.

Enabling the mobile workforce requires more than supporting the latest mobile devices, as end users still need powerful computing for content creation, legacy applications and business operations. Modernizing traditional PCs with virtual desktops enables IT administrators to grant end users greater mobility and access to corporate data, applications and desktops without compromising security or control.

By the end of 2013, it is estimated that there will be 1.4 billion smartphones in the world with 57 per cent or 798 million units running on Android, according to a study by ABI Research. With a diverse set of models customized by every major manufacturer using a variety of Android operating systems, managing authorized or unauthorized mobile devices is a major challenge for corporate IT.

Some of the new capabilities and products unveiled at VMworld 2013 includes New VMware Ready Smartphones, New Mobile Partners nad Horizon Workspace 1.5.
