VMware Workspace One: An Integrated Digital Workspace Platform

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

Today’s worker demands an integrated working environment in which they can use the devices of their choosing and seamlessly integrate their work and personal lives. They also expect to have an uncomplicated, consumer-like experience while doing so. In the modern enterprise, however, delivering this type of employee experience is difficult when balanced with the need to provide such an experience securely.

Past attempts at striking this balance, including approaches such as virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI), have fallen woefully short as the need to create a secure environment resulted in a kluge and complicated experience. VMware believes that it has struck the right balance between these seemingly opposing needs with its Workspace One offering. True to its name, the solution creates a digital employee workspace that combines single sign-on capabilities with an application catalog and end-point management. The result is a secure environment that provides an employee with either native or virtualized (as necessary) access to the applications they need to do their job on Windows, Mac or mobile devices.

It can be a little difficult to grasp, but the solution provides an elegant, yet secure mechanism that enables employees to access the applications they need intuitively. The ability to simultaneously support native mobile apps, browser-based interfaces and to virtualize legacy applications when necessary is what separates the company’s approach from traditional VDI efforts and creates a transformative experience for employees. The additional layer of consolidated endpoint management gives IT the tools it needs to unobtrusively ensure the security of the environment.
