The workplace has evolved significantly in recent years and today’s “modern office” is no longer a static location.
The modern employee expects to be productive and work in a meaningful and efficient way; from any location, at any time and on any device.
Digital workspaces are becoming common place as organisations seek new level of agility, improved service delivery and processes; and flexibility for their employees. This results in greater productivity, better business performance, a superior customer experience and a positive impact to the bottom line.
The increased adoption and convergence of virtualisation, cloud, mobility and cyber security technologies make this work style possible.
Delivering a Secure Digital Workspace
A secure digital workspace strategy includes end user computing, enterprise mobility management and networking (including wireless networks); and a centralised approach to managing and securing applications, endpoints, data, hosting and networks.
One of the biggest challenges of the digital workspace is ensuring a high-quality and consistent employee experience. The other challenge is ensuring your corporate data stays secure across clouds, mobile devices and networks. Both issues are increasingly being addressed through secure digital workspaces.
Virtualising apps and desktops takes care of a large part of the security concern since the apps, desktops and data are centralised in a datacenter or cloud and sensitive corporate data does not exist on the physical device.
If users need access to native apps security can be managed with solutions like enterprise mobility management, secure network gateways and file sync and share.
Citrix Workspace Suite is a complete solution offering app and desktop virtualisation, secure mobility management, mobile productivity apps, on-premises or cloud-based file sharing, plus networking for secure remote access.
Digital Transformation across industries
The digital workspace is enabling significant transformation across industries:
- Healthcare: patient care is improving as medical professionals gain secure, real‐time access to resources such as X‐rays and medical records from any location, on any device.
- Accountancy and Legal Practices: technology is driving new practices and better processes enabling professionals to be more collaborative and productive as the digital workspace follows them.
- Construction and Engineering: efficiencies are increasing as engineers, designers and external suppliers collaborate securely with high‐performance, remote access to applications, desktops and 3D models.
- Education: students have access to anytime, anywhere learning, whilst academics advance teaching methods with virtual environments.
Enterprise Solutions have implemented digital workspaces for many organisations including Xilinx Ireland, William Fry and a host of SME’s, Corporates and Government agencies.
The digital workspace is now an enterprise reality. Choosing the right workspace solution to meet your business requirements will play a key role in ensuring a smooth and secure transition to a mobile workforce that increasingly relies on cloud-based apps.
