As a cloud-based business services suite, Microsoft® Office 365™ provides organizations with access to web, mobile and desktop versions of traditional Office software tools, cloud storage space for enterprise file sharing, and hosted services for communication and social. By making these services available across desktop, mobile, and web platforms, Microsoft is experiencing increased adoption from both consumers and businesses while expanding the possibilities for anytime-anywhere collaboration.
IT organizations are largely siloed between the desktop and mobile management worlds. IT has addressed management of mobile devices with modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. However, Windows desktops have been managed separately using older PC lifecycle management (PCLM) technologies, which have fallen short of basic IT and end user expectations of today’s evolved, mobile-cloud workforce.
The VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution is a single, platform-independent approach for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. The solution combines traditional client management requirements with modern EMM efficiencies enabling IT to deliver OS policies, patches, and apps over-the-air. Cloud-first management with instant push technologies and self-service capabilities ensure lower cost management, better security, and peak user experience regardless of the device being used to access the corporate environment.
Enterprise mobile capabilities ideally complement, protect, and enable market-leading mobile applications to improve workforce productivity and intelligence and enable increased sales performance as a result. After a number of years of considering the relative value of various new devices, mobile device management (MDM) paradigms, development methodologies, new services, and new connectivity models, retailers are ramping up investments in enterprise mobility. Rugged devices can be part of this business outcome-centered approach, adding enterprise mobility to deliver great experiences and comparatively reduce the economic cost of doing so — importantly, doing so with continued ease in supportability, excellence in performance, and consistency in usability. Retailers are continuing to invest in deployment of secure ruggedized mobile devices for many reasons that are explored in this white paper.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
"Today’s IT organizations simply cannot afford to continue to manage the end user environment with an out-of-date PC-centric approach to systems management. The cloud, mobility and multiplatform environments render that approach ineffective. It’s time to take another look at virtual application and desktop
virtualization technologies. Download this whitepaper to look at VMware Horizon, the most complete solution for delivering, managing and protecting Windows desktops, applications and online services across devices, locations, media and connections, making it ideal for systems management transformation.

Au cours des dernières années, le terme « BYOD » ( Bring
Your Own Device » ou « Utilisation de terminaux personnels »)
a gagné en popularité dans le monde du travail, et les terminaux
mobiles sont devenus très courants dans de nombreuses
entreprises. Toutefois, ce terme englobe bien plus que cette
nouvelle tendance. L’utilisation de terminaux personnels n’est
qu’une partie d’une évolution plus importante et plus profonde :
celle de la consumérisation de l’informatique qui remonte au
début des années 2000. À cette époque, presque tout le monde
avait un ordinateur personnel qui permettait de travailler chez soi
en dehors des heures de travail. Nous avions tous les avantages
de ces terminaux choisis avec soin et nous profitions d’un grand
confort d’utilisation par rapport aux terminaux d’entreprise
préparés par le service informatique.

La mobilité reste une opportunité stratégique importante
pour les entreprises de toutes sortes, car elle peut contribuer
à augmenter leur compétitivité en rendant les employés plus
productifs ou en s'engageant auprès des clients de manière
plus innovante. Pour atteindre ce potentiel, la mobilité des
entreprises doit proposer aux utilisateurs une expérience simple
sur plusieurs terminaux et offrir un espace de travail sécurisé
pour les applications essentielles. Pour servir cette base d'employés mobiles et de clients, les entreprises doivent activer leurs fonctionnalités BYOD et self-service avec une plateforme établie qui s'adapte pour prendre en charge de nouveaux processus.

Attendees also discussed the impact of digital transformation initiatives on end user computing, and what this means for CIOs and IT departments in this sector.
Deliver better services, reduce expenses and comply with regulations are familiar business demands heard by financial services IT leaders. Simultaneously, the time and cost of managing custom apps to run core business operations continues to rise. Not only does this obstruct the speed of innovation adoption, it also increases the need for better end user experiences due to app management volume.
How can financial services IT teams enable more efficacy alongside business growth, while reducing their own IT management burden? This ebook examines four ways financial services organizations can deliver apps and manage users at scale while reducing costs and optimizing existing investments.
Digital transformation (DX) is the driving force behind new worldwide initiatives in financial services. However, a recent IDC survey discovered that fewer than 5% of institutions have started or completed a digital transformation strategy. Historically, financial institutions focused on the use of mobility to directly drive improved customer experiences to their customers' devices. However, as consumer sophistication with mobility increases — particularly among younger generations —so too does the need to enable mobility for the enterprise worker. This Market Spotlight explores these issues in the larger DX context.
Advances in the technologies of the electronic components essential to mobility continue to yield powerful and productive mobile computers and communicators, with an amazing range of function and raw capabilities that even seasoned professionals find remarkable. There also have been dramatic improvements in wireless networks—from Wi-Fi to the broadband cellular services that continue to expand in both coverage and capacity—that offer throughput and related performance characteristics that rival what’s possible on wire. Finally, add in apps, cloud solutions and related management capabilities, and there’s never been a better time than right now to profit from a strategy that reaps the benefits of a mobile workforce—and, really, a mobile organization.
