Commodity IT, the problem formerly known as Shadow IT

I have been working on a couple of projects the last 6 months where we designed and deployed digital workspaces. All of these customers had different drivers behind those projects such as: Staying ahead of the competition Create a millenial-proof workspace environment Reduce administrative overhead on desktop management Consolidate our localized workspace management (point) solutions to a global hosted cloud Transform our workspace service from a CapEx model to an…

VMware End-User Computing TechCon (vEUCTechCon)

The past 9 months I visited a lot of VMUG’s, UserCons and both VMworlds and in most cases to present. One of the things that I noticed is that particularly at VMworlds, End-User Computing is getting a bigger stage. Workspace ONE is pretty hot and most likely the biggest reason for this. At VMUG’s and UserCon’s at the other hand, it is still a black sheep. The main reason is of... Read more

Review of VMworld 2017 in Barcelona

Second of all, VMware did a great job  in having the EUC announcements... Read more

VMware Horizon Helpdesk

VMware Horizon 7.2 is released and it’s awesome!

Today VMware released the newest version of the Horizon Suite, version 7.2 And although the previous releases contained great new features, this is one that I am really excited about. VMware added some great new features to existing functionality and better yet, added a complete new feature called Helpdesk which makes me really enthusiastic. Let me first give you an overview of all the new features before digging into Helpdesk.... Read more

VDI assumptions

To assess or not to assess, is that even a question?

I’m currently working on the first design project after becoming VCDX. And so it is a great opportunity to use my newly developed skills to design the world’s most awesome Digital Workspace. I might write some more around this project in the next coming months. The project involves basically the whole VMware Workspace ONE Suite and on top of that NSX Enterprise for Desktops and some other security-related solutions for... Read more
