What Happened in Top Mobile News in the Past 3 Months

  • Ashley Speagle By

Accelerating business mobility, supporting the mobile ecosystem, empowering end users to be more productive, revolutionizing the way you do business: as leaders in your industries, these are priorities to your mobile strategies. That’s why VMware AirWatch is committed to advancing these goals—even in as little as three months.

Because technology continues to rapidly change, you need a partner that helps you rapidly adopt with it. Here’s how we’ve delivered on these goals in the third quarter this year.

Accelerating Business Mobility

  • AirWatch Express Available: Why can’t mobile device setup be more like the “TurboTax” process—quick and easy? On Aug. 2, VMware launched a simple, affordable mobile device management solution for companies with limited technology resources. Step-by-step wizards and blueprints help companies of all sizes quickly deliver apps and email and configure Wi-Fi for employees.

The growth of mobile is being felt in companies of all sizes, and MDM solutions are becoming a necessary part of a strong mobile strategy.
