Add to your agenda:

We are in the age of the digital workspace. Your users are clamoring for access to their data and apps from any device, including from personal devices. Your business expects IT to maintain security and eliminate the leakage of any sensitive information. How do you maintain this balance between end-user productivity and security? We believe the industry needs to evolve to focus on controlling access based on a new access control layer.

In this Spotlight Session, the VMware leadership team will discuss how Workspace ONE is built on a powerful access control layer that is dynamic, based on context. This access control layer in Workspace ONE transforms how organizations implement access control without compromising the end-user experience.

At WWDC in June, Apple announced several exciting updates for its major operating systems. With consistent same-day support for operating system and device updates, we’re working with Apple to deliver mobile device management (MDM) support for iOS updates. And with updates from Apple and new enterprise mobility management (EMM) innovations from AirWatch, the way our customers manage macOS is evolving to include out-of-the-box experiences and broader support for bring-your-own-device scenarios.

Add to your agenda:

For IT, connecting heterogeneous backends is difficult; at best, there is not enough time and manpower to support the requests in a timely manner. This introduces shadow IT, where the business unit deploys a solution to meet user needs outside of IT’s control. Learn how IT can take back control using Workspace ONE intelligent workflows to build workflows from core apps to backend services, like Salesforce or Concur. These workflows create what we call micro moments which provide an exceptional user experience, increasing productivity and app adoption while keeping corporate data secure.

In this session, we will showcase the return on investment opportunity and highlight real-world examples of the benefits in modernizing Windows 10 management with AirWatch. We’ll also uncover the impact of strengthening your security posture and delivering a better experience to end users to boost productivity and effectiveness.

  • Brian Gammage, Chief Market Technologist, VMware

Add to your agenda:

The digital workspace redefines the user experience as centered around the person, rather than the things they use. It enables a fundamental transformation of the relationship between IT and users, from push-based control to demand-based choice. Access to corporate applications and data can be combined seamlessly with the user’s personal environment, without compromise to enterprise security or user privacy. Successful deployments deliver improved employee engagement and a significant return on investment.

In this session, we share lessons learned from our customers and offer a firsthand look at VMware’s own journey to the digital workspace.

Add to your agenda:

In this fast-paced mobile/cloud world, IT departments are expected to deliver corporate content and applications to employees quickly and securely, with no compromise to the user experience. This presents an enormous challenge to enterprise IT organizations. It is no longer about providing access to any application from any device, anywhere, but rather about allowing access to the right application, to the right user, to the right device, at the right time.

Workspace ONE delivers on that promise with an enterprise-secure solution and a consumer-simple experience.

Join us in this session to learn how Workspace ONE is driving digital transformation for large enterprise organizations by enabling seamless and secure access to your corporate data.
