The advancement of technology and the current pace of conducting business have changed the way we think about solving problems. Todayâ€™s premier IT leaders are constantly challenged with identifying and eliminating siloed solutions. Meanwhile, they are looking to find and/or develop programs, applications and other technologies that are robust and easy to integrate, and that handle everything from systematizing operations and streamlining functionality to accomplishing multiple tasks at once. In other words, theyâ€™re looking for the â€śdigitalâ€ť Swiss Army knife.
IT teams are constantly tasked with managing devices that must be upgraded and transitioned between users. Plus, as the evolution of devices and operating systems continues, users and workplaces must evaluate the need for integrating new devices in the mix. Rather than spend countless hours and money setting up these devices to balance security needs and employee wants, VMwareâ€™s Workspace ONE is committed to enhancing the out-of-box experience (OOBE) for all devices using any OS.
Most businesses today continue to sink a large portion of their IT budget into Microsoft Windows desktop/server OS, config management and Office products, with an overwhelming trend in adopting a cloud model. Therefore, employees are consuming Office apps on mobile devices almost as much as traditional PCs. Â
For several years now, weâ€™ve been watching wearable technology infiltrate our lives. From smart watches to activity trackers available from dozens of manufacturers, these devices have some people checking their wrists almost as frequently as most check their phones. While the advent of wearables seemed to be primarily focused in the consumer sector at launch, this technology has swiftly shifted into being a productivity magnet for busy adults trying to manage everything from their calendars and in-boxes to their to-do lists. As an IT leader, what should you know about wearables in the workplace?
At Tech Orchard, we are no strangers to the digital workspace, a space that is constantly evolving. We continue to see businesses challenged with balancing employee needs for productivity and mobile collaboration with a secure environment that features the same ease-of-use expected from a consumer-like experience. Underscored by the expanding bring your own device (BYOD) culture, the current digital workspace points to a clear need for unified endpoint management (UEM).
