As I mentioned in this earlier post, VMware announced Horizon 6.2 with tons of new features.
Besides Horizon 6.2, new products were announced that will bring the End User Computing portfolio and it’s cool products more together (like I predicted in this post).
VMware Identity Manager Advanced
First of all, VMware Identity Manager Advanced was announced. vIDM Advanced is a combination of the vIDM (the product formerly known as Workspace Portal) and some bits and pieces of AirWatch. vIDM has it’s strong Identity Management solution. But when needing a complete chain of security with all sorts of devices and a central infrastructure, AirWatch is essential. So basically, vIDM Advanced combines best of both products and is an example of how VMware is merging cool features from acquired solutions.

VMware Project A² (A Squared)
A second example of combining features from acquired products, is a project called A². A² combines Enterprise Mobility Management from AirWatch with Application Delivery from App Volumes in helping customers accelerate to Windows 10.
