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.
Tom will serve as an EUC (end-user computing) solutions engineer. In this role, he’ll primarily be in the field assisting clients with implementing and managing VMware’s Workspace ONE powered by Airwatch and VMware Horizon. These platforms allow companies to capitalize on the value of unified endpoint management (UEM) and desktop and app virtualization to meet key business requirements and common use cases for the increasingly mobile workplace.
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.
Apple and Windows 10 users, listen up! VMware has just announced a number of management and security enhancements as part of its Workspace ONE 9.7 release. Within these updates are a number of new functionalities for iOS 12 users and a provisioning package for Windows 10 users available through Dell Factory Services. To find out how to make the most of these enhancements, watch VMware’s six-minute video summarizing what’s new.
The advancement of technology and the current pace of conducting business have changed the way we think about solving problems. Today’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, they’re looking for the “digital” Swiss Army knife.
