If you have not yet heard, Workspot recently secured a significant new account win with Siemens Energy, a global leader in providing sustainable energy systems. Siemens Energy chose Workspot’s enterprise VDI platform engineered for simplicity combined with Google Cloud, to provide their globally distributed workforce with reliable, high-performance, ubiquitous access to virtual apps and desktops.
After an extensive evaluation process that considered other solutions, Siemens Energy determined that the Workspot solution was the best fit due to their complex mix of on-premises, hybrid. and multi-cloud requirements. Workspot’s ease of deployment, implementation, operation, and management of VDI combined with the global reach and performance of Google Cloud and the flexibility to also deploy and manage workloads in other clouds as well as on-premises, with a single management interface, were key. In essence, we represented an unbeatable combination.
As Wolfgang Schubert, VP of Digital Transformation at Siemens Energy said, “Leveraging Workspot and Google Cloud enables us to modernize our previous VDI deployments, streamline our operations, and reduce costs. We are looking forward now to a successful deployment across our organization.” The fact that Workspot offers a simple, cloud-agnostic VDI solution that easily spans multiple clouds and regions around the globe served as a strong factor in Siemens Energy’s decision, given that they operate in over 90 countries and their people access a wide range of apps, including GPU-powered high-performance workloads that include processing-intensive engineering and CAD design jobs. The combination of Google Cloud and Workspot is proving to offer Siemens Energy the ideal mix of geographical reach, end-user performance, and system-wide reliability.
As the Workspot sales leader for the EMEA region, I am seeing that Siemens Energy is not alone in their need for a new, modern, cloud-native VDI solution that combines great performance for end-users with extreme simplicity for IT teams. The manufacturing sector is just one of the areas where Workspot’s solution is an ideal fit, and I’m very encouraged at the scale of our opportunity to replace legacy Citrix and Horizon VDI deployments, across the UK, Europe, and elsewhere in the region.
The world needs a VDI solution that is no longer hindered and restricted by the legacy approach of traditional VDI. Workspot has the answer, and I’m super-excited to be part of the journey!
