VMware chief technology officer Steve Herrod gave attendees at the annual VMworld conference here today a glimpse at a technology the company is developing that will let workers access Windows applications regardless of the type of device they're using or the operating system it runs.
Herrod showed off technology from VMware's labs, some of which is being released today, that lets corporate tech managers simply provision applications - such as Microsoft's Excel spreadsheet software - to employees to use on iPads, Android phones, as well as their Windows desktops.
VMware updated its Horizon Application Manager, which had previously only let users run cloud-based applications, to support Windows applications regardless of the type of device or the underlying operating system.
Herrod also demonstrated ThinApp Factory, which lets employees pick from among the applications that their tech departments make available to them. Companies can stitch those together with VMware's Horizon Mobile to make those applications available on portable devices. And VMware announced that devices running Horizon Mobile will be coming from LG and Samsung, among others, in the coming months.
