For decades, PCs were institutional at the vast majority of large, corporate companies. IT traditionalists balked at integrating Macs into their network, despite the quality, security and capability of these Apple devices. As the proliferation of tablets and smartphones in the workplace increased, it made IT’s job increasingly complex. But with the advent of unified endpoint management (UEM) technology, incorporating Apple in the enterprise is both seamless and simple.
As IT leaders look for cost-effective ways to secure their corporate infrastructure without hindering employee productivity or limiting device accessibility, the value of a modern management approach is coming sharply into focus. To ensure Tech Orchard is well positioned to address the growing demand for help transitioning successfully to the digital workspace, we are pleased to announce the addition of Tom Bollig to our team.
The Tech Orchard team made the pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the VMworld conference again this year. We were excited to see VMware’s continued focus on UEM and the future of the digital workspace. One of the biggest announcements this year was the official release of a much-anticipated co-management tool that provides a simple way to transition from SCCM, a legacy PCLM tool, to Workspace ONE Modern Management.
Legacy management is everywhere. IT departments are scrambling to keep up with the rapid evolution of technology. Cloud-based services, changing employee preferences and increased cyber security threats make it impossible to succeed in the silos of the past. Companies who are surviving and thriving are doing so by transitioning to the digital workspace and adopting a modern management approach that can keep pace with current and anticipated changes.
Gallup’s 2017 State of the American Workplace report notes that just 33% of workers in the U.S. are engaged at work. As organizations look for ways to increase engagement and boost productivity, all while keeping data management and security at the forefront of their efforts, it’s clear that modern management is essential for ongoing success.
