Using IBM Watson’s cognitive capabilities, companies can quickly differentiate their customer service quality by being more pro active and responsive to customer needs. Simply put, chatbots and virtual agents are the future of customer interactions. Building apps from scratch that incorporate natural language processing, speech to text recognition, visual recognition, analytics, and artificial intelligence requires broad expertise in these disciplines, large staffs, and a huge financial commitment. Making use of IBM Watson cognitive services brings these capabilities in-house quickly and without the capital investment that would be needed to develop the technologies within an organization.

Read this whitepaper to navigate through the End User Experience Monitoring (EUEM) landscape. Learn how traditional APM and device monitoring products provide some aspects of End User Experience Monitoring, but can often leave enterprise IT Ops teams blind to what their workforce users are actually experiencing.
Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.

Citrix has been delivering virtualized apps for 25 years, while VMware is just getting started. In fact, VMware Horizon has left out some of the “no-brainer” features that Citrix XenApp users and admins have been using for years. Understanding the differences between these products is critical to determining if the solution you pick is the right choice for IT.
Desktop virtualization is a powerful driver of business transformation, making it possible to deliver the apps and data people depend on to get work done. Learn how Citrix XenDesktop with FlexCast allows you to use a variety of methods to balance user requirements and costs for each use case in your organization.
The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure.
In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters.
Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability
VMware Identity Manager provides single sign-on (SSO) to a broad range of SaaS applications, as well as legacy applications published via virtual desktop platforms from VMware and Citrix, and browser-based and native mobile apps. VMware Identity Manager also provides application provision¬ing and conditional (adaptive, or risk-based) access controls, and can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud. In this report, 451 Research analyzes VMware’s strategic effort to bridge the legacy on-premises world (which still represents most of its business) with the more highly distributed and heterogeneous worlds of mobile and cloud computing. 451 also examines VMware’s re-entry into the IDaaS market is to extend their market reach beyond what VDI and EMM might accomplish individually.
