o Today's workplace is growing increasingly mobile. End-users need access to their desktops and corporate information from various devices and locations. For IT, the delivery, management and security of corporate desktops, applications and data is an exceedingly complex challenge. Our business group - EUC - End-User Computing team is building the next generation platform for enabling the mobile, modern workforce. The Horizon family of products was developed around the vision that users now need a virtual workspace - a central hub for accessing all their desktops, business applications, services and files.
o Windows desktops have been a mainstay of the enterprise for 25 years, but a fundamental shift is now underway affecting the way enterprise customers access desktops, applications, and data. This shift is driven by two large-scale trends: cloud computing, and the emergence of personal Internet-connected devices to replace PCs. Desktops, apps, and data should be accessible from any device, anywhere, transparently.
o VMware Horizon Cloud Services(HCS) is a SaaS solution for delivering virtual desktop remotely. The HCS engineering team is developing a software platform that enables enterprises to consume desktops from the cloud in an as-a-service model.
