Ever since smartphones displaced the BlackBerry as the device of choice among pretty much everyone outside of government, businesses have been working hard to devise a simple, all-things-to-all-people approach to mobile deployments.
BYOD is cheap, but is by definition a multi-platform solution that presents a number of compatibility, management, and security issues. CYOD strategies restore a good deal of control to the organization, but add to the number of devices an employee will be carrying.
The recent launch of HP’s Elite x3 and VMware’s Workspace ONE could change all that.
HP Elite x3
The HP Elite x3 is HP’s 3-in-1 mobility solution that lets you replace all of these with one single system across the enterprise. In your hand, it’s a high-performance 5.96-inch phablet. On the road, it pairs with the 12.5-inch HP Elite x3 Lap Doc to deliver full notebook utility. In the office, slip it into the HP Elite x3 Desk Dock for seamless connectivity with your keyboard, monitor, and mouse to get down to work – just as you always have.
And because it’s a Windows device, virtually every business already has the expertise and infrastructure to support it. Even better, the familiar Windows operating system and Windows 10 Mobile apps mean new get up-to-speed and productive in no time.
It’s the one device that delivers notebook-class speed, performance, and responsiveness with plenty of cloud processing power, support for an HD display, and dedicated computing resources for each user.
VMware Workspace ONE
Now you can give employees the freedom to be productive while maintaining the right data security and compliance. VMware Workspace ONE is a simple and secure enterprise platform that delivers and manages any app on any smartphone, tablet, or laptop – including the Elite x3. It begins with consumer grade self-service, single sign on access to cloud, mobile, and Windows apps, and includes powerfully integrated email, calendar, file, and social collaboration tools to engage employees. By integrating identity management, real-time application delivery, and enterprise mobility management, Workspace ONE engages digital employees, reduces the threat of data leakage, and modernizes traditional IT operations for the Mobile Cloud Era.
Together Workspace ONE and the Elite x3 give enterprises a flexible, secure, and highly manageable approach to enterprise mobility that delivers benefits to the organization and its team members.
