CIOs are facing new challenges while running their companies. Two such modern hurdles come from increases in mobile demand and remote/home working. These challenges are pressuring enterprises to make access for applications that are mission-critical and to develop/implement systems that can handle the data requirements of a global workforce.
There are numerous solutions on the market all spouting that they function best at providing connectivity between a user’s device and a company’s back-end systems. This tends to be a complex endeavor because enterprises need to not only take into consideration virtual and cloud apps, but also end users who need to use Windows legacy environments.
It all boils down to enterprise mobility management (EMM) and a CIOs ability to simplify it. Here are three ideas on how.
To Manage it, First Measure it
In order to ensure that your IT department can crunch the numbers how many users you have, they need to be able to “see” how many there are. This means IT needs adequate tools and information on hand to know the correct output needed. First thing’s first, you need to have analytics built-in. This will allow your virtualized management solution to provide statistics on connectivity issues, productivity and workload effectively in a few clicks.
The ability for Windows applications to “webify” or “cloudify” is one of the benefits of remote access management software. Once the software is installed on a host machine, it will allow device access anywhere in the world—without having to make modifications.
Another advantage with browser-based applications is their overall ease. Browser-based applications are easy to configure, manage, install and deploy, as well as good at providing secure access. This is achievable because all of the processing happens within a data center.
Group Management and Security
Security also needs to be considered. One way data is secured is by managing all data files centrally as this keeps them more secure than having them spread out. In addition, in the event of data theft or loss, the original data is safe behind the firewall.
