VMware has taken the wrappers off its new Briefing Centre (VBC), located within its Sydney office.
The centre provides customers and partners with the opportunity to experience and demonstrate VMware’s Business Mobility solutions across desktop, mobile, content collaboration and infrastructure technologies.
VMware A/NZ vice president and managing director, Duncan Bennet, said it can truly demonstrate real world mobility-based scenarios to executives and partners.
“We expect our partners will take a lot of value out of this facility,” Bennet said.
“Our objective is to show how you can do some quite sophisticated and complicated things, and that you can truly innovate, use mobile applications securely and in interesting ways to drive productivity and reduce costs.”
The facility provides integrated content delivery including access to presentations, videos and demos; access to VBC demonstration environment showing the VMware digital workspace across Windows and Mac environments, tablets, smartphones and thin clients.
Specific live demonstrations can also showcase user and admin capabilities across key solution areas and the ability to show demos that flow across multiple screens as VMware reps transition from device to device.
Spearheading VMware’s mobility drive was its acquisition of mobility management specialist AirWatch in January 2014 for $US1.54 billion.
Bennet said the AirWatch and mobility sector, was one of the fastest growing parts of its business. One of its customers is Delta Airlines, which used the technology to help manage its in-flight mobile devices.
“The mobility market is moving quickly and we need to make sure all of our partners truly understand all of the capability that’s available today,” he said.
