State of End User Computing Market 2016


If you woke up from a two year sleep and took a look at the End User Computing market right now September 2016, you’d be surprised. A lot of the well known vendors in the End User Computing market are acquired by others these days, the smaller ones that is. The market so to say is emptier, perhaps with less choice than before. In this article I’d like to take a look at one segment of the End User Computing market, User Environment Management. Saying you focus on one segment of the market is easier said than done, I realize I need to take into account that companies offer functionality through a suite of licenses. Like I did with the last User Environment Management comparison white paper aka smackdown, I will take in account the fact that suites are more common than point solutions these days.


I’m going back a little bit to reflect on what we had back then. In 2014 all User Environment Management vendors were still on the market. We had a nice palette of vendors, solutions and choices. A fierce battle was going on between RES and AppSense in Europe. Several smaller vendors like Immidio, VUEM and some others were offering User Environment Management as well but on a smaller scale. In the US vendors like Liquidware Labs were fighting battles for customer with RES and AppSense. Of course there were others but I think the ones named here are the ones that we saw on the battle field.

Vendors like Microsoft, Citrix and VMware all offered some sort of User Environment Management solution but all of them failed to offer a Enterprise ready solution that would take in account the context of the user and the device. They offered basis solution with no advanced features… no wonder the market changed.

In 2014 at VMworld in San Francisco (can we please go back there), we had a meeting were the discussion was about what User Environment Management solution they should acquire. Three vendors were discussed each with it’s pro’s and cons. A couple of months later news got out, VMware acquired Immidio, the market started to change, one down some others to go.
