“VMware supported identity migration to ensure email addresses and identities were synced with VMware Workspace ONE. User certificates were seamlessly updated with no downtime, which meant we could drive the project quickly despite complex requirements.”

West Midlands Police strives to prevent crime and help people in need. To empower officers to spend more time serving the public and less on paperwork, it launched a mobility and device management transformation with VMware Workspace ONE. In nine months, the force redesigned and rebuilt the solution, migrating on-premises devices to cloud. Approximately 10,000 frontline workers use mobile devices to gather, store and share evidence and witness statements, navigate faster to crime scenes and access IT support services from anywhere. This increases safety for both officers and the public while saving an estimated 1.8 million hours of administration time every year.
