90% of top ten deals had VMware’s EUC

So far, we’ve discussed VMware’s (VMW) various segments’ and offerings’ performances in the company’s most recent quarter. Let’s see how its EUC (end-user computing) business has performed.

In fiscal 1Q18, VMware’s EUC business reported a 20% YoY (year-over-year) rise in its license bookings. Mobile and desktop software sales drove this growth. Another highlight for EUC was that nine out of VMware’s top ten deals in the quarter had EUC in them, just like NSX.

How VMware’s End-User Computing Business Performed

Last month, VMware partnered with Google (GOOG) to speed up the adoption of Google’s Chromebooks. Under this partnership, VMware’s offerings such as Airwatch, Workspace One, and Horizon would be used to make Chromebooks more accessible to enterprise users.

According to Sumit Dhawan, the senior vice president and general manager of VMware’s end-user computing business, “VMware has been working with Google since 2015 to offer secure Android devices and applications, most recently with advanced support for Android Enterprise.”

Horizon is a leader in virtual client computing

VMware is heavily pushing Horizon cloud, which was positioned as a leader in the IDC MarketScape Worldwide Virtual Client Computing Software 2016 Vendor Assessment in November 2016.

2016 marked the second year in a row in which VMware held this position. Earlier in the series, we discussed VMware’s strategic deal with Microsoft (MSFT) Azure to push its Horizon offering.
