Changes in the Air

VMWare and AirWatch have announced VMWare’s acquisition of the leading enterprise MDM and security management experts. In a deal expected to be around $1.175 billion in cash and $365 million in installation payments and unvested equity. With the top Airwatch board remaining at the table just with different reporting lines, the question will be how VMWare integrates AirWatch into their Horizon offering. With over 2 billion smart phones and tablets in the world and more than half of these touching enterprise, it is a sound business move – and could make the marketplace with competitor Citrix a good deal more interesting.
