VMware Workspace One has a powerful set of helpful features. The solution offers very good documentation, the initial setup is easy, and the product is very stable and reliable. I think the fact that VMware Workspace One provides a simplified administration is a huge advantage for businesses and adds tremendous value. It also takes pressure off of employees and frees up their time for other work priorities, which is a huge benefit. I happen to like the Kiosk Mode feature, which restricts employees or clients to using only the VMware Workspace One application for interactions. By offering only one application, you gain an extra layer of security control. In regards to scalability, I believe it is suitable for both small and large sized companies. Overall, I am impressed with VMware Workspace One, though I do wish they would offer extended device support, especially for IOT things such as SCADA devices.
VMware Horizon 7 isn’t as fully mature as VMware Workspace One. It’s comparable in terms of setup and scalability, making it easy to expand to more endpoints. However, it is more pricey and it really shouldn’t be. In contrast to VMware Workspace One, I actually feel that it is lacking in documentation for app settings. Nevertheless, the product seems to work well when it comes to desktop management, specifically when it comes to all the upgrades. It would also be helpful if they had an additional feature like automatic replication of all the stored profiles to avoid having to use third-party tools.
Compared to VMware Horizon 7, VMware Workspace One is a solid choice because it doesn’t have bugs or glitches, it does not crash or freeze, it is secure, easy to use, it is centrally managed, and performs well. All of these details make a huge difference to me, and for me VMware Workspace One is a clear winner.

It is more economical than purchasing each license individually. If you purchase vSphere Enterprise plus vSAN, then vROps, and then Horizon, it's going to be a large cost. If you do this logic, it will be very cheaper, because they did not charge us separately for the vSphere or vSAN or vROps with this. You buy the number of seats irrespective to how much hardware you run on, they will not charge you more. That's the benefit.
