Powering the Anywhere Workforce
Explore recommended technologies for simplifying device management, empowering employees and maintaining security in a flexible work model.
In This Ebook
Enabling employee productivity is key to flexible work. No matter where employees are working — in the office, at home or on-the-go — they need seamless access to business-critical applications from any device. This requires IT leaders to not only modernize device management but consider the entire end-user experience.
From defining your end-user computing strategy and workforce personas to building and implementing an actionable roadmap to training IT staff and end users on their new technology, WWT can help you at every step of your digital employee experience journey. Explore some of our recommended solutions below for powering the anywhere workforce.
Unified endpoint management
The typical remote workforce uses a mixture of corporate-owned and employee-owned devices. Unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions make it simpler for IT to securely deliver and manage apps and content on disparate devices. A key feature of VMware Workspace ONE, adaptive management allows organizations to selectively increase device management and security requirements for business-critical apps and content.
Desktop virtualization provides the ability to access Windows and Linux desktop environments from any type of endpoint device: PC, mobile device and thin client. WWT can help make the "desktop experience" something your end-users can access anywhere — instead of an experience tied to a physical device in a specific location. Security inherent in virtualized desktops and apps ensures that data stays in the data center, and access to those resources is delivered via encrypted protocols that secure the connection from the user’s device to the data center.
Using VMware Horizon, we can virtualize both apps and desktops so employees can work productively from anywhere.
Cloud-hosted desktop and app virtualization solutions are quick to deploy and easy to scale. That makes them ideal not only for immediate shifts to remote working, but for businesses whose data center resources are at or near capacity. VMware Horizon on VMware Cloud on AWS can host virtual desktops and applications in AWS. It can also seamlessly integrate with on-prem Horizon deployments to create a dynamic hybrid configuration.
Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure offers cloud-hosted virtual desktops and apps as well as Windows Virtual Desktop and Windows 10 multi-session capabilities. Both AWS and Azure approaches provide consumption economics and agility that can help expedite the delivery of desktop and app virtualization services.
Drop ship provisioning
Drop ship provisioning is the process of tailoring, installing and delivering the right hardware assets to employees based on their specific needs and requirements. Unlike traditional drop ship provisioning that requires significant IT time and resources, WWT and VMware's joint solution allows organizations to complete provisioning tasks in minutes (instead of hours or days) and with virtually zero IT touch and no employee downtime.
Leveraging the flexibility of VMware Workspace ONE Drop Ship Provisioning, WWT can help organizations identify the best solution for them and deliver it through our North American Integration Center (NAIC),a climate-controlled production environment with advanced networking, secure remote access, and certified procedures specifically designed for staging, kitting and configuring the latest devices.
