Understanding VMware Workspace Environment Management (WEM) And Welcoming Immidio!
I’m thrilled with our announcement of the acquisition of Immidio and their user environment management (UEM) solution that provides a consistent and dynamic application and desktop experience across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.

In this post, I’d like to share some additional insight about our strategy and introduce you to what Immidio does and explain how WEM is different from UEM.
‘Many-ness’ Is Increasing Customer Costs
Most enterprise IT customers I speak with have a mix of physical and virtual infrastructure, invested in automation and open source, begun to consume public cloud infrastructure, and are re-architecting their datacenter strategy towards a hybrid approach. They want everything to run like a cloud service, so they can deploy any app to any device. So how do these enterprises start to move towards that reality for their end-user computing (EUC) service offerings?
In EUC, innovations such as converged infrastructure and flexible delivery architectures are making the day zero problem of deploying desktop and application infrastructure easier and more cost effective. However the day two problem of operating in silos with virtual, physical, and cloud-based desktops is leading to increased complexity. As I meet with EUC customers, it’s staggering to hear how much operational overhead there still is to operate diverse tools, processes and organizations across heterogeneous physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. A recent article by Goldman Sachs highlights this problem and speaks to what is keeping big companies out of the public clouds:
