VMware (NYSE:WMW) has announced it has been positioned as a leader in the “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software 2017 Vendor Assessment.”
As quoted in the press release:
The report profiled 14 vendors and VMware was recognized as a leader in enterprise mobility management (EMM). VMware provides an EMM solution to its customers through its VMware Workspace ONE™ platform. Powered by VMware AirWatch®technology, Workspace ONE delivers and manages any app on any device by integrating identity, application, and unified endpoint management.
According to the IDC MarketScape report, “VMware’s AirWatch product, acquired in 2014, is now tightly integrated into VMware’s End User Computing (EUC) business unit, which includes the company’s virtual client computing and other non-datacenter software products. As an individual product, AirWatch has MDM, MAM, and MCM capabilities and is expanding aggressively into UEM and IoT use cases. AirWatch is also among the leaders in EMM to incorporate reporting data and analytics into its offering, with packages to help businesses better understand how mobile devices, apps, and data are accessed and consumed.”
“The EMM industry is undergoing rapid transformation as customers look to manage all endpoints — mobile, desktop and IoT — from a single, user-centric platform. We’ve continued to push our pace of innovation to deliver a solution that can help customers adopt a UEM approach at their desired pace,” explained Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware. “We understand our customers are at different points in their digital transformation journey, and with our Workspace ONE platform powered by AirWatch technology, they can find a solution that will support them as they move from EMM to UEM to deploying a digital workspace strategy.”
This year, VMware has delivered advancements that continue to differentiate Workspace ONE and AirWatch in the industry including:
- Expansion of enterprise security with cross-platform support in AirWatch for mobile, desktops, ruggedized and IoT devices, including Windows 10, to simplify the IT and end-user experiences.
- A collaboration with Oracle to enable advanced security features and streamlined management of Oracle mobile enterprise applications using AirWatch and Workspace ONE.
- Integration between AirWatch and Dell Client Command Suite to extend remote management capabilities for key Dell hardware system attributes to enhance AirWatch.
