VMware announces that Indian enterprises have massively adapted the AirWatch Mobile Device Management solution deluging over a successful million licenses mark.
The cloud-services giant asserts India as one of the fastest growing markets for its End User Computing business globally – having a strong customer like Air Works, Axis Bank, Fullerton, IDFC Bank, Indigo Airlines, Mindtree, OYO Rooms, Wipro, and Zomato, etc.
VMware AirWatch Mobile Device Management helps businesses to address the challenges associated with mobility by providing a simplified, efficient way to view and manage all devices from a central admin console. The solution enables businesses to enroll devices in their enterprise environment quickly, configure and update device settings over-the-air, and secure mobile devices.
“Enterprise mobility is a trend that is fundamentally redefining the workplace, its technology, and even how, when, and where people work today,” said Arun Parmeswaran, managing director, VMware India. “We, as an end user solution provider, play in the center of this revolution, with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that enable organizations to adopt true business process transformation.”
“India represents one of the top growth markets for VMware when it comes to End User Computing and, as a leader, we are excited about the opportunities that are emerging for our business,” he added.
“Mobility is clearly one of the top priorities for businesses across the country. With the diversity in devices being brought to the workplace, businesses aren’t left with a choice but to implement a mobility strategy,” said Sanchit Gogia, Chief Analyst & CEO at Greyhound Research. “Today, AirWatch by VMware has emerged as the clear leader in the enterprise mobility space in India. Their strong product roadmap and investments in the business and ecosystem here have helped them grow and capture market share,” he added.
In February, VMware unveiled VMware Workspace ONE, a new platform for delivering secure digital workspaces for flexible workstyles and bring your own device (BYOD). Using the principles of consumer simple and enterprise secure, the digital workspace delivered by VMware will address the end user and enterprise IT business mobility needs by aggregating all devices, applications and services while securely managing them through unified common access and identity.
In 2015, VMware claims that its End-User Computing business grew over 30% year-over-year, bringing the total annual bookings run rate to over $1.2 billion.
