VMware offers a stable IT foundation to strengthen digital services

“By choosing VMware Cloud Foundation and VMware Workspace ONE, we as a municipality have taken a five-year leap forward in our digitization. Furthermore, we were able to roll out 1,500 workplaces at once and within a week, 100% of the workforce could work from home. As a result, the service to the citizens and businesses in Haarlem has remained at the same level, even in extraordinary times.”

Thomas van den Hoff, Project Leader/Scrummaster, Municipality of Haarlem

Haarlem is a city in the province of North Holland. Its municipality provides vital services to its citizens, such as issuing official documents (a passport or identity card and a driver’s license) and issuing benefits to those who cannot provide for themselves. The municipal data center and workplace environment were very outdated and did not provided a good basis to shape the further digitization of the municipality. After implementing VMware Cloud Foundation and VMware Workspace ONE, the municipality of Haarlem took a five-year leap forward in its digital transformation goals. As a result, the employee experience has improved and the municipality meets the expectations of citizens – now and in the future.
