"Bridging the App Gap" [VMTN6693U] at the VMvillage - VMTN Community Theater @ 10:30AM PT

End users no longer want to consume enterprise applications and workflows just from PCs, they want a new computing model that enables seamless mobility and productivity across devices and platforms - anywhere, anytime, anyplace. Whereas application virtualization is fast, simple, economical and secure, the user experience on a PC is poor, and is untenable on mobile devices. So, how do you extend your investment in the applications and workflows you use to run your business out to users on all devices securely and with the user experience they expect? A significant "app gap" remains. In this TechTalk, learn how mobile app solutions are bridging the "app gap" by providing all the benefits of application virtualization, but with a native user experience on the device that users expect. NOTE: Community TechTalk taking place in VMvillage.

Jonathan Kaplan, Co-Founder and CTO

  • Modernize and simplify any application - extend to any device
  • Leverage one unified solution to easily design, connect, secure and deploy cross-platform mobile apps across the enterprise
  • Utilize best practices for streamlining security and configuration of apps through AppConfig Community standards 

VMblog:  Attendees always enjoy a good trade show tchotchke.  Are you guys giving away anything special or interesting this year?
