Public Sector Tech Talk E20: Optimizing Productivity for the Higher Education Hybrid Workforce and Students
Many higher education institutions had begun the transition to the digital campus pre-COVID. The arrival of the pandemic drove short-term, tactical, rapidly implemented infrastructure changes to accommodate remote learning and work for all students, staff, and faculty. The duration of the pandemic has caused a tectonic, long-term shift in how institutions must deliver education, conduct research, and optimize productivity for a hybrid workforce. How do researchers keep critical projects on track when they only have limited physical access to their laboratories? Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions promote working from anywhere by enabling remote access to IT resources from any device. However, legacy virtualization options did not envision the scale required moving forward, and may not be able to deliver the required performance and manageability. This episode looks at next generation VDI solutions and how to leverage them to accelerate the transition to the digital campus.
