Key Considerations for End-User Management

by David Davis


Unless IT can offer the applications that employees need and allow them the workplace mobility they demand, IT will be seen as a barrier to productivity and efficiency. Stop fighting the losing battle with today’s tech-savvy and mobile workforce. By employing a policy-driven application with streaming data delivery, your company will finally be able to achieve the control you need while giving employees the freedom they demand.


Article 1: Resolving BYOD Challenges and Enabling Workplace Mobility

Companies of all sizes face an ongoing struggle to manage the proliferation of end-user devices and demands. Thus far, no single technology solution has been available that provides IT the control they need and end users the flexibility and functionality that they require. Recently, new technology suites have emerged to fill the gaps in end-user management. Today’s enterprise IT groups must be prepared to offer a broad set of technologies, from VDI to app layering, in order to meet the competitive needs of a rapidly evolving mobile workforce.

Article 2: Considerations for Delivering Windows as a Service to Mobile End Users

Gone are the days when each user had a physical desktop or laptop with basic needs for remote access. With the consumerization of IT, most every user has their own personal laptop, tablet, or smartphone with expectations of being able to work on it whenever they need and wherever they are. In today’s highly mobile world, the smart move is toward centralized image management solutions, with VDI being one of the most popular forms.

Article 3: Understanding Policy-Driven Application and Data Delivery Options

IT must come to terms with the fact that the accepted model of how employees work and how IT manages the devices, applications, and data used by the employees has all changed. IT is forced into fighting a losing battle between the control and security that they are tasked with creating over company data and the freedom that employees demand. How can IT meet the demands but also protect your company’s data when your data is traversing networks and devices that you don’t own? Control and flexibility don’t have to be mutually exclusive. What is better is a new tool that allows balance between them.
