Singapore Airlines boosts BYOD push with VMware platform

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has chosen VMware’s Workspace ONE solution to provide richer employee digital experiences across multiple apps and devices.

VMware’s platform promises to streamline the delivery of mobile applications across more than 14,000 employee-owned devices, as well as more than 6,000 company-issued devices.

Workspace ONE facilitates seamless access to SaaS productivity applications as well as SIA’s mobile and intranet web applications on BYOD mobile devices anytime, anywhere.

The delivery of enterprise-level security for corporate data, coupled with consumer-focused ease of access and usability has driven higher employee engagement across the organisation.

So far, SIA has successfully deployed 35 mobile applications developed by its in-house technology development and innovation team, delivering them more securely to company-issued and BYOD devices using Workspace ONE’s App Catalog.

In providing the best possible employee experience without comprising the airline industry’s strict security standards, VMware’s Workspace ONE compliance engine enables all applications meet compliance and compatibility requirements. The engine also allows applications to be fully functional and updated with the latest security patches across every device.

“Digital workspace solutions are recognised for their ability to offer a seamless, collaborative workplace experience and VMware is committed to supporting the carrier on its mission of enabling greater enterprise mobility while improving operational efficiency while enhancing data security,” said Sanjay K. Deshmukh, VMware’s VP and managing director for Southeast Asia and Korea.
