This five-day course presents a methodology for designing a VMware EUC solution. The design methodology includes recommendations for the type of information and data that must be gathered and analyzed to make sound design decisions for the client systems, the desktop options, the VMware vSphere® infrastructure, VMware Horizon. VMware Horizon Cloud, VMware Workspace ONE UEM, VMware Workspace ONE Access and VMware UAG. VMware best practices are presented for each phase of the design process. In this course, you apply your new knowledge by working with other participants to design a VMware EUC solution for a real-world project.
