Adding some more colour to the highlights from my VMworld Europe 2015 coverage:
Day 2 kicked off after breakfast with again sort of a repeat of the VMworld US keynote kicked off by the engaging Sanjay Poonam, the EUC boss.
Sanjay has really lit a fire under VMware’s EUC, started talking about the amazing effect of smartphones, AirWatch is the tech company VMware bought which now manages mobile devices (and future IoT) but Windows 10 support is the big news as announced at VMworld US. This will bring together mobile and PC management which could be very attractive for enterprises.
Announced Boxer acquisition which is simple, secure access to email, content and apps.
The Boxer team, which will join the AirWatch team, has developed a mature personal information management (PIM) solution for enterprises that offers a container approach to mobile application management and security. Boxer has partnered with industry leaders and supports market leading productivity, enterprise and social networking solutions including Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Gmail, iCloud, Salesforce, Twitter, Outlook and Yahoo, just to name a few.
Rory Clements, Solutions Engineering Director for EUC then went through the same demo that Microsoft came on stage for in the US version and demoed AirWatch managing Windows 10 as well as using App Volumes on physical as part of Project A2
Single sign-on across multiple devices and applications (over 40) with AirWatch.
Sanjay and Rory then showed a windows application remoted on a Tesla and then the mixing of AirWatch and NSX network security.
Sanjay then tried to get the crowd chanting “EUC will Rock You” with the backing of some drummers!
