So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.

The IoT Imperative for Discrete Manufacturers

Published By: SAP EMEA Global     Published Date: Dec 13, 2017
For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.
