In Forrester’s 25-criteria evaluation of enterprise mobile management (EMM) vendors, we identified the 11 most significant EMM providers — AirWatch by VMware, BlackBerry, Citrix, Good Technology, IBM, Landesk, Microsoft, MobileIron, SAP, Sophos, and Soti — and analyzed their offerings. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals select the right partner for their enterprise mobile management.
Advances in the technologies of the electronic components essential to mobility continue to yield powerful and productive mobile computers and communicators, with an amazing range of function and raw capabilities that even seasoned professionals find remarkable. There also have been dramatic improvements in wireless networks—from Wi-Fi to the broadband cellular services that continue to expand in both coverage and capacity—that offer throughput and related performance characteristics that rival what’s possible on wire. Finally, add in apps, cloud solutions and related management capabilities, and there’s never been a better time than right now to profit from a strategy that reaps the benefits of a mobile workforce—and, really, a mobile organization.
This guide will help you leverage opportunities in the public cloud in ways that make sense no matter where you are on the cloud adoption spectrum. If you are running a VMware vSphere®-powered Data Center, it may be time to modernize your infrastructure with VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud for protecting, extending, and replacing on-premises vSphere workloads. Read the eBook for tips and tricks, lessons learned from other organizations, and links to additional resources to help you get started.
This white paper will give you perspective on how cloud computing is addressing today’s most pressing IT and business challenges. Public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities has become the preferred cloud model and it’s important to know the types of hybrid cloud capabilities enterprises should evaluate when considering cloud computing. Through three real-world case studies you’ll also see how VMware vCloud Air specifically delivers on the promise of public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities.
Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.

From choosing the right service offering to migrating your workloads and administering resources, reference these tips as you extend your data center to the cloud.
Learn why VMware vSphere® users across multiple industries turned to VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud built on vSphere, to modernize their data centers.
While each organization’s story may be unique, VMware vSphere customers can quickly realize the cost-effectiveness and operational efficiencies that the public cloud delivers—without compromising the investments they’ve made in their on-premises data centers.
Higher education is in the midst of fundamental changes that are reshaping the future of both the mission and the business. As technology helps campuses better reach beyond their traditional physical borders, decision-makers expect IT to offer the solutions and leadership needed to deliver better services to students, staff, and researchers while simplifying IT costs and responsibilities. This solution brief addresses how vCloud Air built on the popular vSphere virtualization platform, is helping higher education IT respond to today’s performance, manageability, and security challenges.
As organizations begin to adopt public cloud, one element of consideration is what to do with existing applications. These applications were not built with cloud in mind, though most are virtualized today. These organizations must now determine a modernization strategy for these applications and incorporate how public cloud might fit into the picture. This paper examines the use of public cloud for data center extension and replacement, particularly in light of existing traditional enterprise applications. It also looks at the role of VMware's vCloud Air public cloud service in meeting the needs of these applications.
The digital workspace has arrived, and the most progressive organizations are taking action. To thrive in this digital environment, organizations need to embrace strategies that better prepare them for success in the growing digital economy. Understandably, this means working toward becoming highly mobile enterprises. Throughout this process, an organization’s technology partner choices can play a pivotal role in achieving business goals. As such, stability and scalability are taking center stage. This is why a forward-looking solution can empower an organization to move away from standalone enterprise mobility management (EMM) to the digital workspace.
In this white paper, we’ll take a look at how the mobility ecosystem is evolving and how organizations can push the boundaries of enterprise mobility while making the most of their investments. For MobileIron customers making a migration decision, selecting a partner with solid leadership, stability, scalability, and steady growth wil
