Since the dawn of time, technology has had a vital role to play in every facet of life. The development of tools and techniques has seen hurdles overcome, processes streamlined and has been the foundation for progress and growth. From the mobile phones perched in our pockets to the shoes on our feet, technology has shaped the world in which we live.
When it comes to business, technology’s role is equally as important. We are a far cry from the days of dial-up internet connections, towering filing cabinets and the monotonous drone of fax machines populating an otherwise soundless office; we have moved on to greener, more prosperous pastures. In fact, in the modern age, the success of your business could well hinge on your ability to adopt the latest technologies and harness the power it possesses to facilitate growth, enhance productivity and expedite processes.
With the shift to hybrid working, it is integral that you find a solution that empowers your workforce to seamlessly carry on with ‘business as usual’, and the answer may well be implementing a virtual desktop solution.
Why Does Your Business Need a Virtual Desktop Solution?
In the current climate, ‘security’, ‘cost-efficiency’ and ‘sustainability’ are just some of the watchwords being brandished about by businesses, all of which can be sufficiently addressed through the adoption of a virtual desktop solution.
As virtual desktop solutions are designed to store all data in secure data centres, rather than on the endpoint devices themselves, your organisation is able to significantly improve its security posture. Most virtual desktop solutions, such as Microsoft Azure, also offer more granular controls which enable decision makers to grant isolated user sessions and permissions, granting you greater overall control of your systems.
Every business owner and IT professional has 'cost' at the forefront of their mind. With everything on the rise, it is more essential now than ever that your business is spending in the right areas, such as security, productivity and efficiency. With a virtual desktop solution, you can minimise the cost of managing on-premises infrastructure. This brings added cost savings when paired with your existing Microsoft licences, as you are able to run multiple virtual desktops on the same hardware, significantly reducing your organisation’s overheads.
Climate change is a hot topic across the world, not only as a moral or ethical dispute, but also regarding business. The adoption of sustainable practices is on the rise, and a virtual desktop helps businesses to achieve this. End-user computing is a significant contributor to carbon emissions, whereas the Cloud allows businesses to lower their carbon footprint, particularly as Cloud vendors like Microsoft are heavily focused on sustainability and are continually investing resources into this mission.
Navigate Uncharted Waters with a Virtual Desktop Solution
The benefits of opting to use a virtual desktop solution are vast, especially given the current working climate of dispersed workforces, increased customer demand and a continued need to separate yourself from the competition. Technology is increasingly a tool that can help bolster a business’ competitive position and at CMI, we can help you harness it.
