Cloud virtual infrastructure firm VMware said that it sees growth in adoption of its digital workspace solutions by Indian organisations. With more than 1 million end-points managed in India, VMware saw some notable customer wins including – Max Life Insurance, MSC Software, Malayala Manorama, Karunya University, among others.
VMware offers digital workspace which gives IT an efficient, simplified way of managing users, devices and applications. The average return on investment for digital workspace expenditures is 150 percent.
“The digital workspace is the defining model for end-user computing in the mobile cloud era. Business is changing in India and digital workspaces are adding real business value for organisations, and at the same time allowing users to focus on the work to be done, not the technology in their hands,” said Arun Parameswaran, Managing Director, VMware India.
“Enterprise mobility is witnessing a paradigm shift towards consolidation of enterprise systems that seamlessly enable not just multi-platform devices and apps, but also emerging connected devices such as wearables, IoT, machine learning and virtual reality systems. Proliferation of mobile endpoints has compelled businesses to address threat management with automated and adaptive defence mechanisms while simultaneously driving richer user experience,” said Benoy CS, Director, Digital Transformation (ICT) Practice, Frost & Sullivan.
“This year will see a change in how businesses approach mobility, from a device-focused approach to a more comprehensive strategy. To ensure the long-term success of enterprise mobile strategy, many organizations are implementing ‘Mobile Center of Excellence' where multiple stakeholders having IT and business expertise are collaborating to reshape business models, maximize corporate performance and derive business value,” he added.
