To streamline the process of maintaining desktop environments, many IT managers are turning to mobile-cloud first approaches to application and desktop delivery.
And if your business is in a similar transition, due to trends in BYOD, changing application delivery models, and worker mobility, your end-user computing environments could be becoming overly complex.
To combat this rising complexity, you need to consider implementing hybrid consumption models that work at scale and address security threats.
Read this white paper that details how the next generation of desktop architectures is taking mobility into account and how IT strategies are shifting from managing devices to managing users.
For many IT organizations that have implemented desktop virtualization, a game-changing decision is on the horizon. New options are now available that can significantly simplify desktop management – and at the same time eliminate trade-offs between performance and cost. Download this Datamation whitepaper to learn about the options IT now has to unify desktop virtualization and application delivery under one platform, reducing costs and improving user experience with VMware® Horizon®.
Businesses running older versions of Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, or running Citrix on top of Windows Server 2003, have hard choices. You can’t ignore the problem, which will likely require large-scale upgrades of the existing application delivery farms, which in turn often require replacing the entire software stack—and perhaps the hardware, too. Once the need for such a major upgrade has been determined, we recommend a fresher approach than making the default choice to upgrade to the next version of Citrix XenApp. Download this whitepaper to learn how you can take advantage of the opportunity to sail the Safe Passage to VMware Horizon, which offers a clean start, reduces the number of vendors involved with application delivery and improves employee productivity.

Many Windows applications are traditional x86/x64 apps, which can be several GBs in size. To package and deploy apps to remote worker and branch office endpoints, organizations mostly rely on costly distribution servers, which are both capital and labor intensive. New Windows Software Distribution capabilities in AirWatch create a more efficient and enterprise scalable deployment experience that reduces bandwidth, infrastructure, and labor costs.

• Eliminate the challenges of complex app packaging, unreliable app installs and recurring OS imaging with App Stacks delivery
• Distribute apps to remote and branch users with CDN and P2P capabilities and eliminate your distribution server footprint
• Deliver apps in a unified app catalog and provide a consistent single sign-on experience for the user
In today’s fast-moving digital environment, many are challenged to transform their IT organizations and provide an automated, self-service approach to IT services delivery, especially with limited resources and expertise.
Digitalization has spurred new opportunities for how business gets done. With the emergence of big data and mobility, enterprises see the promise of making employees more productive and keeping customers more engaged. And they recognize that efficient, prompt application development and delivery are instrumental for taking advantage of these new opportunities. In this unforgiving era of digitalization, you need to be first to market if you want to flourish.
The enhanced performance that results from the DevOps approach has been proven to have a big impact on the overall performance of the business, with faster, more reliable software delivery, consequent cost savings, and faster time to value.

What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of software-based
network technologies to WAN connections to more effectively route all network traffic
between headquarters or data centers, remote and branch offices, and the cloud.
More simply, it is the method of leveraging the benefits of the cloud, the bandwidth of
broadband and existing enterprise-wide network infrastructure to more efficiently and
cost effectively transmit media (data, video, voice) and quickly access cloud
applications from every location in the network.
SD-WAN dynamically utilizes multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband, LTE)
to find the optimal delivery path for traffic across the entire network, shaping the
bandwidth as needed to eliminate jitter and dropped data packets, thereby delivering
an optimal user experience regardless of location.
The more sophisticated solutions will first attempt to dynamically steer traffic to the
best available link and if the available link
