EUCHorizon Cloud Services Advanced Integrations Day 4Dynamic Environment Manager Integration with Workspace ONE UEM

Dynamic Environment Manager Integration with Workspace ONE UEM

For Dynamic Environment Manager to work effectively the client needs to have access to a Configuration archive for pre-defined configuration and a Profile archive for individual user configurations.

We now support the delivery of  the Configurations to end-points using Workspace ONE UEM.

We now support the storing to the users individual configuration online using Microsoft ONEDrive

  • This Lab is dedicated to delivering and managing the Dynamic Environment Manager Configuration using with Workspace ONE UEM
  • This Lab is dedicated to delivering and managing the Dynamic Environment Manager Archives using with Workspace ONE UEM and Microsoft ONE drive

Explaining the Scenario and Use Case

Where organization's have Windows 10 laptops enrolled into Workspace ONE UEM, Organizations have a wealth of potential to not only secure the Windows 10 platform but also enhance the User Experience.

On occasion these users might sometimes be using their enrolled laptop and then using the Horizon Desktop.

Being able to offer the same desktop settings and configurations irrespective of whether the user is on Laptop or Horizon Desktop is a feature customers have been asking for.

At the end of the next two labs you will see how far VMware have progressed in the integration of these solutions and also at present what the limitations are.
