Given we’re squarely in the as-a-service era, it was only a matter of time before workspace-as-a-service would come of age.
With all the changes in the workplace—from the broader generational shifts to the more specific trends toward unified endpoint management—some organizations are employing a workspace-as-a-service model.
- purchase and provision new equipment,
- maintain assets,
- update software,
- staff a support desk, and
- manage security and privacy.
Workspace-as-a-service means companies can
- provide their employees with the business applications and data they need,
- on the device that makes the most sense,
- while minimizing capital outlays.
“We see the new model of computing as being very experience-centric,” says Carol Zichi, strategy and portfolio executive for IBM Digital Workplace Services.
