Application & Desktop Virtualisation
Application and desktop virtualisation offer the promise of improved security, by delivering the desktop OS and applications from the datacentre. For early adopters this improved security came at a high price, due to the complex and high-performance infrastructure requirements. This high cost also meant that many early adopters under specified their solutions, which resulted in a poor end-user experience.
Current VDI solutions directly address the cost, complexity, and issues with end-user experience by:
- Leveraging the advancements in storage, ranging from all-flash storage to fully converged appliances to drive down the cost
- Including improved management and automation capabilities that enable IT to patch, update and manage images and applications more efficiently and with fewer resources
- Supporting rich multimedia graphics, a wide range of clients, and enabling users to get a customised and highly personalised desktop experience across connections and locations
These technology advancements are driving many IT organisations to revisit their application and desktop virtualisation solutions in order to benefit from:
- Lower cost
- Simplified management
- Improved end-user experience

Mobile Management & BYOD
The only thing growing faster today than the volume and variety of mobile devices is the expectation of users. Today’s users are accustomed to a consumer-like experience that is simple and convenient, and they expect to be able to work anywhere, at any time, and from any device.
As the consumerisation of IT continues to grow, so has the popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs in the workplace. Organisations have recognised that enabling employees to use their personal devices to access company resources not only reduces costs, but also increases employee productivity, effectiveness and job satisfaction.
Creating a consumer-like experience for remote workers, outside the corporate office, has become more and more complex for organisations. To address this challenge, IT is shifting towards a unified endpoint management (UEM) approach. This approach gives IT greater visibility, simplified management, increased security, and improved operational efficiency through combined management tools and processes.

Content and Collaboration
Employees need anytime, anywhere access to corporate content to stay productive. Many users are taking advantage of free file sharing services to access sensitive documents, putting your organisation’s corporate data at risk. By giving users access to the latest corporate content on their mobile devices, regardless of where it’s stored, organisations can increase mobile productivity while ensuring corporate data remains secure.
