When did you first implement a virtualization technology? Has it been 5 years? Maybe 10 years? Times have changed – and your business demands have changed as well.

When you first implemented virtualization, you may have been trying to deliver one critical app or a handful of key applications to a specific user segment.5 signs it's time for a digital workspace

You recognized the value of providing complete virtual desktops to large user segments and expanded to desktop virtualization.

Along the way, you may have chosen chose a separate vendor for mobility management, found your line of business buyers may have purchased some file sharing tools, and perhaps pursued a public cloud for a few initiatives.

Your overall approach to delivering access to users may be disjointed, hard to manage and expensive.

It’s time to take a step back and re-evaluate your user needs, business demands, and how technology has evolved.

Five signs it’s time for a digital workspace

Do you recognize these five signs in your environment? If the answer is YES, it’s time for a digital workspace.

  • Workers are demanding more access, from more locations
  • You need to enable full productivity on any type of mobile device—including smartphones and tablets, not just laptops
  • Consumer-grade mobile apps and file sharing services are poking holes in your security stance
  • Document sharing is out of control – and you need a secure way to manage file sharing
  • Multiple vendors are causing headaches when you patch together solutions for app delivery, data, mobility and networking

You’ve already seen the benefits of virtualization. Is your organization now ready to expand to meet today’s demands for secure delivery of apps, desktops and data on any device?

It’s time for an integrated digital workspace.
