State/Local

Against a backdrop of flat budgets, organizational silos, and risk-averse culture, government IT departments are increasingly expected to achieve mission objectives while demonstrating accountability, value, and return on investment. Increase efficiencies, transform security, and optimize service delivery with VMware's integrated portfolio of software-defined data center (SDDC), hybrid cloud, and mobility solutions. Insight and VMware solutions for state and local government improve workflows, increase mobility, and empower IT to protect sensitive data across devices and apps. Better yet, using VMware you can get data in the hands of first responders and field workers when they need it.

Employ a Digital-First Government Workforce

State, county, and city governments are at the forefront of citizen service delivery. Just as the Internet compounded the need for e-government services, mobile technologies are changing the way citizens and employees consume information- and their expectations.

Mobility made possible

Mobile device management scales quickly to allow workers secure access to exactly what they need, when they need it, regardless of device or ownership.

Digital workspaces

Unify user, desktop, and mobile management to enable a digital workspace that moves with workers in the office and out in the field.

Single sign-on

Secure single sign-on (SSO) across workstations, tablets, and smartphones means that government employees and even citizens can access state and local records anywhere, on any device.
