Group Description (End User Computing EUC Virtual Workspace services R&D team)
Today's workplace is growing increasingly mobile. End-users need access to their desktops and corporate information from various devices and locations.
For IT, the delivery, management and security of corporate desktops, applications and data is an exceedingly complex challenge.
Our End-User Computing team is building the next generation platform for enabling the mobile, modern workforce.
