Pros
"The ease of access and the confidentiality and security that it provides is what we like best.""The price and user interface are great.""The basic virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) feature is most valuable. We were lucky to have it in place when the pandemic hit. It is used very heavily now.""It is a good product. I don't have any complaints.""The feature that I like is that it is fast.""The most valuable feature is connectivity. The remote connection is the reason we are using this solution.""The most valuable feature is the seamless application edition with the low-level network bandwidth because we have between 10 and 15 sites in France with a low level of communication needs. We need to deploy our main application, the ERP system, and we needed an efficient solution to provide a solution to the remote sites, with very small links between the data center and the remote site.""It is stable, easy to scale, and provides secure remote access."

"It has all of the features that we need to use and that we want to use.""From a remote management perspective, I like the management and the inventory.""You can put all your applications on a mobile device, be it a phone or tablet. It is secure and easy to use. Because it is centrally managed, you don't have to do any configuration on the phone. I just got the phone and connected to the central applications. I just downloaded one thing and everything got rolled out. Email, calendar, and other things were deployed centrally. If you don't have AirWatch, you have to configure your phone manually. For example, you need to deploy and configure your email manually and then synchronize everything. It is much simpler when a mobile device is centrally managed.""The location and remote management services are the most valuable.""A very easy to use solution.""The feature with the highest rating for me is its employee management. I can also praise how versatile it is in terms of operating systems. It has good support for multiple operating systems and can easily manage them all. Not just that, but it can also support any kind of tool that can be run on all these operating systems.""The most valuable feature of the solution is that it enables us to remotely manage the devices, which is its purpose, and to push applications to the mobile devices from the portal.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the tracking of the devices."

Cons
"The product is currently not working well in hosting conferencing software like Zoom, Team, and Salon.""When there are technical issues, sometimes we can't get on the cloud.""The lag when using Skype or Screen Sharing with multiple users needs to improve, as it makes it difficult for us to continue when we have to restart the system.""This solution is resource-intensive, it takes a lot of Bandwidth and a lot of the resources of the server.""They can simplify the process of printers. Printers were quite a difficult issue. It took us a long time to iron this issue out. We have the most simple use case where people connect from home to either a virtual machine or their physical desktop. We tried more complex solutions like Machine Creation Services, and they were more overhead than they were worth for us. I found them difficult to work with and confusing, and they were not worth the work for us.""The initial setup is very complex.""The application is now very complex. We started with Citrix on PCs. Now, to access the same application, we need to have a StoreFront Server, the Delivery Controller, and Citrix License Server. It's now very complex.""I've recently tried to use Citrix on Ubuntu, and I don't know if this is an Ubuntu issue or a vendor issue, but you can't use Citrix right now on Ubuntu 20.04."

"The pricing could always be better.""The initial setup should be simplified.""The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user.""Cost of licensing is quite high.""Feature-wise, it is fine, but its pricing could be better, given that Microsoft is on a bundling spree. AirWatch would benefit from reducing the license pricing per user per month.""I would like to see some integration with native Microsoft products such as Anti-value.""The SaaS environment is not very responsive at times, so the performance can be improved in that regard.""There should be better compatibility with Linux devices."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We don't have a lot to compare it to, but we certainly think whatever we pay is worthwhile at this point in time. It's very reasonable."
  • "We are just now approaching the end of our initial purchase, which was an excellent price for us as an academic institution. We got a very good deal to get us on board. That license is up for renewal in about a year, and we are nervously waiting to see what the pricing will be."

  • "There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified."
  • "The cost is a little bit high."
  • "VMware Workspace ONE is not cheap; it's quite expensive. However, in the end, they gave us a reasonable price."
  • "If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is."
  • "I think that the price is reasonable."

    Hi, today my recommendation is still in VM Workspace One. In some cases, you will need more servers to realize this but it permits total flexibility in multiple use cases.
