Omnissa (formerly VMware End-User Computing)

Broadcom will separate from the VMware End-User Computing business unit. The business unit will continue to operate as an independent company. The decision was based on Broadcom CEO Hock Tan's desire to focus more on the firm's core software infrastructure and semiconductor solutions businesses and to sell the EUC business. 

To facilitate this transition, Broadcom has secured KKR as an investment partner. KKR is a strong global partner whose goal is to realise the full potential of these technologies as an independent company. They have extensive strategic experience in growing companies globally. 

The firm has a reputation for being an active investor in the creation of world-leading technology companies. Its mission, particularly in the age of the modern digital workplace, is to create unique value for its customers and to become even more innovative and customer-focused. 

The transaction is expected to close later this year, subject to regulatory approvals. The current management team will continue to lead the EUC business. 

Regardless of these changes, we will continue to be your partner for technical consulting and licensing of EUC products. Our experts have extensive knowledge of the pricing and product portfolio for Horizon, Workspace ONE and App Volumes, which are part of VMware´s offering. 


VMware products in transition: current developments and recommendations

What will happen to Workstation/Fusion? 

Workstation Pro, Player and Fusion are products of the VMware Cloud Foundation division, which will remain with Broadcom. Other than the end of base support, there are no changes and they can still be ordered. 

What will happen to existing ELAs? 

We expect clarity on this in the coming weeks. There is currently no information on whether or how the contracts will be split. We will let you know as soon as we have more information! 

What will happen to vSphere for Desktop? 

The vSphere for Desktop edition will be discontinued on 11/12/2023 and can no longer be ordered. We recommend that you purchase the appropriate Horizon subscription, which includes the vSphere component directly: Horizon Standard Plus, Horizon Enterprise Plus, Horizon Universal. 

What are the next steps in the development of the EUC products? 

The EUC division has already presented a roadmap for the EUC products to selected partners, including SoftwareOne, as part of a roadmap meeting. It is very comprehensive and includes many improvements, features and enhancements that will make the products even better. Stagnation of the products is definitely not to be expected.
