For many businesses around the globe, staying competitive, driving worker productivity, ensuring an optimal end user experience and maintaining business continuity as work shifted from the office to the home has sped up digital transformation initiatives.
Researchers at IDC1 report that 98% of organizations anticipate the most significant challenges associated with implementing hybrid work are lack of IT support, secure remote access, technology consistency across worksites, and enabling teams to work together. According to the recent Future of Work Survey, 42% reported that IT support was the biggest challenge for IT, followed by secure remote access to data, applications, and content (37%), visibility into IT assets (35%), and technology consistency for hybrid and remote workers (34%). Further, the biggest organizational challenges uncovered by IDC researchers included onboarding new hires (28%).
These and numerous other surveys demonstrate that businesses can no longer hide from hybrid work, and many are beginning to realize it is not a temporary fix. It is a viable and long-term solution that for many, has become a desirable alternative to the traditional office environment. With benefits ranging from improved productivity to a better employee experience, it also is a trend that is expected to continue indefinitely.
Hybrid Work Leads to Complexity for IT
The shift to hybrid work and the reliance on technology has led to IT teams having to manage multiple vendors. Next, these teams have to deal with inconsistent procurement cycles and the burden of integrating too many different technologies and solutions. Finally, navigating the evolving cybersecurity threat landscape and protecting the business from ransomware and other attacks can by itself, requires a team comprised of multiple individuals, who are often working more than full time to keep the business safe.
Simplifying and securing the transfer of work, which has effectively become the world’s most valuable commodity to be exchanged, is a top priority. So, what can businesses do to achieve that objective and move past the complexity and expense?
Making Work Smarter, Safer and More Productive
Up until now, there has been no “internet-native” platform to transfer work safely and securely between the data center and the desktop. The cloud-enabled and digital desktop delivery solutions, including Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS), many businesses use to deliver productivity to their end users are just one piece of the puzzle. Outside of this, networking, security, workflow automation and other solutions are needed to onboard and deliver productivity to the end user.
Businesses need a purpose-built platform that makes work smarter, safer and more productive. This platform must be a repeatable, highly scalable, turnkey solution that will enable the business to respond quickly to changing market dynamics, pursue new opportunities around the globe, support work-from-anywhere, and fulfill the cloud-first mandates that will position the business for accelerated growth and success.
