First Business Travel after #Lockdown

travel

Today I want to talk about my experience about traveling internationally after the European travel ban has been removed.

When the government announced the removal of the travel ban and the first request from a customer about an on-site meeting came in, I had to step back and think about the risks of traveling while covid19 is still very much present.

Managing Chromebooks with VMware Workspace One and Chrome Enterprise

chrome

I just got engaged in a customer project for Workspace ONE. This European customer wants to lower his TCO on mobile devices, as they currently hand out many Notebooks to their employees and Windows Notebook require a lot of management from the customer side. So they raised the question if it is possible to include Chromebooks in their environment and to fully manage them with their MDM solution – VMware Workspace ONE UEM.

With the use of VMware Workspace ONE UEM we have two options of management:

  • Container management (We are only able to manage Settings and Content within a protected Container)
  • Full system management (We are managing the whole System and all Content and Settings on it)

The customer decided to have the full system management so we have to incorporate Google Chrome Enterprise, as this solution combines the management capabilities of Google and VMware to easy and fully manage a Chrome Device.
