Workforce Mobility- A New Way to Work
The way we work has fundamentally changed. Individuals today are equipped with tools and technologies that allow them to work from any location, at any time, without sacrificing productivity or efficiency. Welcome to workforce mobility, where the nature of work is more flexible, dynamic, and collaborative than ever before.
Now, employees expect more flexible access to applications and data across devices and locations. And businesses are striving to embrace workplace mobility in an effort to drive greater levels of productivity. Collaboration is increasingly extending outside corporate borders, and teams are becoming more globally scattered. To accommodate this increasingly diversified workforce and their higher expectations, the collaborative landscape is expanding fast. Working from home has become the new normal for businesses.
With VMware, organizations can take the critical steps necessary to balance the demands of a changing workforce while ensuring that IT has a secure and efficient platform to deliver applications, data, and desktops as a service.
Why is Workforce Mobility Important These Days?
Business continuity provides assurance that your company and its employees can remain productive in the event of a significant change in working conditions. The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has wrought serious concerns at both an individual and organizational level, and has ultimately increased the importance of workforce mobility. Some of the remotely accessed software like Splashtop and Microsoft Teams are taking the place of the conventional way of working. People are using Microsoft Intune for Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM) for better security by controlling how the organization's devices are used from a remote location. Organizations also relied on Microsoft Security Center to provide enterprise security operations teams with a unified view of network security.
