VMware, a provider of cloud infrastructure and business mobility, said it has partnered with Samsung to deliver a next generation unified mobile and desktop experience to solve mobile workforce challenges.
As enterprise mobility becomes increasingly common, end-users struggle with disparate mobile and desktop experiences when using enterprise desktops, mobile applications and cloud services. Integration between VMware Horizon and Samsung Desktop Experience (DeX) will enable end-users to dock a Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone and deliver to the device full Windows desktops and applications using a single set of credentials.
On-the-go access to Windows, mobile and cloud applications will be delivered from VMware Workspace ONE through a common digital workspace experience. Whether stationary or mobile, Samsung Galaxy S8 end-users benefit from unified access and experience using a single mobile device that fits into a pocket.
“VMware and Samsung share a common vision of helping Galaxy S8 end-users experience the full capabilities of the device while delivering an elegant end-user experience,” said Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware. “Our expanded partnership will further enable business end-users to remain productive by delivering a unified digital workspace experience that offers continuity whether they are using the mobile device from a desk connected to a monitor, keyboard and mouse, or in the palm of their hands using touch and gesture interactions — elevating the experience of mobile workers to the next level.”
Together with VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon, the new Samsung Galaxy 8 smartphone with Samsung DeX can deliver a common digital workspace experience when end-users access their Windows desktops and applications in the office, or Windows, mobile and cloud applications on-the-go.
“The successful collaboration between Samsung and VMware over the years with VMware AirWatch has helped many customers across the globe embrace BYO and enterprise mobility,” said Kevin Gilroy, executive vice president and general manager, Commerical Division, Samsung. “This extension of our partnership into the delivery of virtual desktop and applications through digital workspaces with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung DeX will further customer choice in best-of-breed technology.”
