VMware Unveils New Anywhere Workspace Updates
VMware announced new capabilities across its Anywhere Workspace platform to help further ease this management burden for IT teams and improve their productivity with automation. VMware Anywhere Workspace enables hybrid work using Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), VDI and DaaS, Digital Employee Experience (DEX), and Workspace Security.
At VMware Explore 2022 US, VMware outlined its vision for “autonomous workspaces” – the next evolution of managing digital workspaces, one that injects data science and automation across endpoint management, security, and end-user experiences. Today’s updates to VMware Anywhere Workspace — which span digital employee experience management, IT orchestration, and VMware Horizon Cloud — advance the capabilities needed to deliver on that vision. The latest enhancements to VMware Anywhere Workspace further incorporate intelligence and automation into every step of the process to simplify IT operations and enable a more secure and flexible digital employee experience.
“Organizations are searching for a balance in the hybrid work model that enables successful remote work while preserving a creative culture that fosters innovation,” said Shankar Iyer, senior vice president, and general manager of End-User Computing at VMware. “To develop a successful hybrid working model, organizations need to automate how they deliver, manage, and better secure hybrid workstyles. The enhancements we are announcing today to VMware Anywhere Workspace bring us one step closer to VMware’s vision of delivering autonomous workspaces.”
Digital Employee Experience (DEX) capabilities have become a priority for organizations as they look to maintain employee engagement in a hybrid work environment. A recently commissioned Forrester Consulting study notes that enabling a superior employee experience requires four key components – experience measurement, analysis, experience delivery, and remediation1.
VMware will broaden the coverage of its DEX solution to support Digital Employee Experience Management (DEEM) for third-party managed Windows devices. With this update, VMware will offer the industry’s most holistic DEX solution spanning delivery, measurement, analysis, and remediation by now supporting multiple endpoint use cases and operating systems. With VMware’s DEX solution in place, organizations can seamlessly manage the digital workspace experience for multiple endpoints and ease the transition to modern management by communicating with all employees and saving IT time and money.
“Businesses must adapt to next-generation hybrid working environments, and we’ve seen a great deal of innovation sparked by this pivot. We value VMware as an innovation partner to help build and define the Orange Workplace Together offering,” said Bob Smart, senior solutions expert at OBS. “Our managed service also enables a natural language, a voice-based interface that directly integrates with Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub. Its development is a great example of working alongside the teams from VMware to improve employee experience, showing how we can leverage AI technology to support the new hybrid work requirements.”
