Digital Work, Digital Workspaces
People work digitally. Whether they’re using a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, they use digital
resources—including apps, data, documents and communications services—to do their jobs.
The specific digital resources a person can access at any given time comprise their “digital workspace.” Ideally, this digital workspace will include all the resources they need to get their work done.
Managing the Digital Workspace
Most companies manage their digital workspaces manually. This is slow, expensive and unreliable. Someone has to submit a request to IT every time the company needs to activate an
account, give a worker access to a resource, or de-activate a privilege. To fulfill each request, IT staff may have to just click a mouse or perform a series of complex actions. Either way, days or weeks can pass before a request is fulfilled.
Automating, managing and securing the digital workspace. Provide the policy-based automation, worker self-service and context awareness (i.e., that the worker is on non-secure Wi-Fi) necessary to ensure that people have the right resources—and only the right resources—in their digital workspace at any given moment. To uniquely provide rapid time-to-benefit with automation and integration for popular applications and services right out of the box. Solutions that are a powerful complement to virtual desktops, app virtualization, and other technologies companies use to deliver digital resources to endpoint devices.
