Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, and VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced a strategic partnership in the area of Enterprise Managed Mobility / End-User Computing. This partnership will combine Capgemini’s mobility consulting, application development and system integration expertise with VMware’s industry-leading end-user computing software, including AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions.

AirWatch by VMware will provide organizations with an industry-optimized EMM solution to manage virtually all mobile devices, across all major mobile platforms and for all deployment types – helping to navigate the complexities of securely protecting and segregating data and associated user support for enterprises. It will provide workers with a centralized console to easily access content and applications from any device underpinned by business-aligned mobile and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) strategies. Readily implemented, the solution will have the ability to innovate, scale and aid customers to move quickly to a productive mobile enterprise.

Capgemini will provide enterprises with end-to-end services including mobile strategy, mobile development, and managed mobility, which can be tailored to specific industry sectors. Capgemini will also enable organizations to build and deploy applications while also leveraging existing investments in systems of record. Base services will include: AirWatch system administration, helpdesk support, mobile platform implementation, mobile application administration and AirWatch deployment. Extended services will include BYOD (including best practices and training), managed mobility strategy (as-a-service per device per month), MDM migrations, customer application development and data analytics. Offered as part of the Capgemini Mobile Solutions portfolio, the client will select an as-a-service package, to align to their specific digital transformation strategy and needs.

Fernando Alvarez, Senior Vice President and Head of the Mobile Solutions Global Service Line at Capgemini, said: “We are proud to announce this partnership with VMware. The End-User Computing market is rapidly growing, and enterprise mobility use and concerns around secure content and data management are increasing, as users have access to an ever increasing number of applications and content on their devices. The Capgemini Managed Mobility Services offering powered by VMware addresses an important demand from CXOs and digital leaders as mobility moves increasingly higher up in terms of technology priorities.”

Sanjay Poonen, Executive Vice President and General Manager, End-User Computing, VMware, said: “Enterprises worldwide are looking for innovative ways to enable their users to be able to work at the speed of life – across all devices. We’re excited about our partnership with Capgemini, with their leading brand and presence in the market, they will help us reach enterprise infrastructure customers and scale resources worldwide, but also set up associated managed services across our Workspace Suite, so that companies can better focus on their core business needs.”

The partnership is an extension of the existing global strategic agreement between Capgemini and VMware. The two companies will collaborate by bundling market-leading AirWatch EMM software with Capgemini Mobile Solutions services with industry-ready accelerators to uniquely match client’s business needs including a single monthly capital or operating expense across a multi-year term. The initial go-to-market focus will be on cloud solution models offered as off-premise hosted options or on-premise cloud models for global companies across North America, EMEA, Latin America and APAC. Capgemini will provide enterprise mobility and organizational change management with vertical industry expertise, such as in consumer products, retail, healthcare, utilities and financial services, while VMware/AirWatch will bring its EMM market-leading knowledge and capability.
