Entisys360 Workspace Cloud: Delivering on ‘Cloud First’ Business Priorities
Today’s mobile workforce wants access to their workspaces, desktops, applications and data from any device, on any network, and located anywhere in the world. As a result, IT organizations of all sizes are restructuring their facilities to adapt to increasing mobility. However, they still often struggle to provide premium services to their end-users while “keeping the lights on,” which means making sure infrastructure is up-to-date, security risks are minimized, and compliance is maintained.
Some of the other challenges IT organizations face include:
- Addressing workforce mobility can be difficult to budget, justify and plan due to varying CAPEX and OPEX costs;
- Coping with the rigidity of traditional infrastructure and virtualizations solutions when it comes to scalability and addressing consumption;
- Having the skills required to manage infrastructure and virtualization solutions create additional burden on existing teams;
- Ensuring consistency, performance, and reliability for end user experience is crucial for adoption and growth; and,
- Taking into account additional cost factors when considering datacenter availability, business continuity and disaster recovery.
Today’s mobile workforce wants access to their desktops, applications, and data from any device, on any network, located anywhere in the world, which in turn is driving IT organizations to restructure their operations to adapt to evolving end-user requirements. Entisys360 Workspace Cloud is one of several offerings that address these challenges and provide our clients with all of the functionality they need to make mobility, application and desktop virtualization a likeable, lovable experience.
