The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend is already a headache for IT departments that don't support multiple platforms. As more services head to the cloud, what IT supports becomes a bigger deal. Can employees access cloud apps and services via their Android or iOS phone or tablet? Historically, VMware has been platform agnostic, where Microsoft has a track record of being less accommodating to non-Windows devices. The BYOD advantage goes to VMware when it comes to cloud service compatibility.
