VMware introduced new technology integrations with Dell that enhance VMware End-User Computing solutions to help customers realize the benefits of workplace transformation through mobile, desktop and cloud technologies.
Integration between VMware AirWatch and Dell Client Command Suite will extend remote management capabilities for key Dell hardware system attributes to enhance AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management. Additionally, at Dell EMC World, Dell announced Dell EMC VDI Complete Solutions that will offer a complete desktop and application virtualization solution powered by VMware Horizon with workload optimized infrastructure, integrated software, optional Dell Wyse thin clients and industry-leading pricing. These integrated solutions showcase the benefits of Dell Technologies, a unique family of businesses that provides the essential infrastructure for organizations to build its digital future, transform IT and protect the most important asset – information.
“VMware and Dell, together, are delivering powerful business benefits that can drive down cost and time-to-desktop that can have a real impact to the bottom line for organizations, and also to front line IT practitioners,” said Sumit Dhawan, SVP and General Manager, End-User Computing, VMware.
“Organizations are looking for solutions that will help them accelerate their workforce transformation while controlling cost and complexity,” said Steve Lalla, SVP and General Manager, Commercial Client Software & Solutions, Dell.
VMware AirWatch integrates with Dell Client Command Suite – client systems management tools for Dell commercial client PCs – to extend management capabilities to key system attributes. With this integration, IT admins can query and retrieve critical system attributes, configure basic input/output system settings, and take remediation actions from the same AirWatch console that is used to manage all Windows OS polices, apps and endpoints across an organization. “Tighter integration between VMware End-User Computing and Dell EMC solutions was to be expected after the acquisition,” said Matt Eastwood, SVP of IDC’s Enterprise Infrastructure Group at IDC.
