The world of work is changing and chances are most businesses have already made adjustments to their workforce because of the proven benefits of remote working: reduced absenteeism, lower turnover, improved employee health and attitude. But it’s not just a matter of creating policies or adapting attitudes to support remote work. The leading driver of a successful remote/mobile work program is technology.
Without the right technology to enable productive remote work, your business won’t reap the benefits. The key is a complete, integrated workspace to enable employees to securely access their apps, desktops and data from anywhere, anytime, on any device. So what technology provides that service?
Cloud hosted Desktop-as-a-Service, or DaaS, is an innovative solution perfect for businesses looking to support remote work employees, mobile employees and BYOD environments. It’s also an ideal solution for small business transitioning applications and support to the cloud.
What is DaaS? Desktop as a Service is the provisioning of remote hosted virtual desktops using a remote server to host personal computer desktops simultaneously. With DaaS a major upgrade is integrated quickly, IT staff no longer has to move from computer to computer to perform the same tasks on multiple PCs. The PCs effectively become all the same, all of which are accessing data and applications through the cloud service provider without storing anything locally.
Make your physical workspace more efficient
A mobile workforce has many faces. There are employees that are mobile within their work environment, moving from terminal to terminal, such as doctors, factory floor workers, and retail associates. For them to remain productive, they need reliable, fast and secure access to corporate apps and data, regardless of location. Desktop-as-a-Service provides employees virtual workstations throughout a facility, where data and applications are accessed via the cloud service on any device. A quick login and they are in their documents, applications and corporate data, securely.
Whether you have virtual workstations throughout your office or virtual desktops for remote employees, there is one stand out benefit – cost savings on hardware! DaaS removes the burden of purchasing, supporting and upgrading local PCs and laptops. Reuse existing hardware and extend the life of your IT investment. The technology itself – the use of a thin client to access DaaS – costs two times less than a traditional PC due to its longer life, absence of a local hard disk, and reduced power consumption.
If there is no sensitive information stored on any local hard drive, there is nothing to steal or loose. Cloud desktops are locked down, changes are made by an administrator which helps to prevent user initiated problems. And if a cloud desktop gets an infection, an IT professional simply recovers from a golden image and then reloads the user’s profile settings. Recovery is quick and easy.
Your employees are asking for greater flexibility and remote work options. With DaaS you can confidently provide a productive remote work environment, satisfying their requests.
