Five trends shaping the future of enterprise computing

Desktop and application virtualization can help reduce costs by up to 30%

Fact: A growing number of enterprise employees want to work remotely at least some of the time.

Opportunity: By honoring this request, employers can earn favorable reviews — like 'friendly,’ ‘flexible’ and even ‘progressive’ — and find cost savings in providing support.

Challenge: IT gets the task of enabling anywhere, anytime work arrangements, while at the same time ensuring that remote access to corporate data and apps is straightforward, reliable and secure. Understanding and benchmarking end user's typical days, and leveraging those insights to design better work experiences is no easy task.

Solution: This is where Workplace Virtualization Services comes in. This service moves end-user computing from employee workstations to a centralized, server-based infrastructure - on premise, in a collocated datacenter or on the cloud - and employees can access data and apps on the devices they prefer, including BYOD.

We lead with our signature workplace solution, which provides a comprehensive understanding of the people, process and technology aspects of the workplace. The insights gathered through analytics translate into fit-for-purpose solutions built with end-user experience in mind.

As a result, our customers report significantly reduced total cost of ownership, easier device management, maintenance and support, better scalability and, most importantly,  happier employees.
