Workspace virtualisation could prove to be the key to greater IT efficiency in situations where your organisation relies upon flexible working arrangements, or employees that are not office based. Virtualisation can reduce costs and improve user experience.
Workspace virtualisation refers to the user getting the same working experience, regardless of their device or their location. This means, a financial manager or managing director could close their PC session in the office, go home, and then continue their work on their home device. This can be configured to grant them access to their work, regardless of location whilst maintaining a high level of security.
Virtualised environments can be used for multiple devices, and be accessed cross-platform from other devices. The entire office environment can be virtualised using laptops, high speed internet, video cameras and cloud phones – facilitating the office, anywhere. You could also access one device from a completely different one, giving more options n terms of saving money on the IT infrastructure required for virtualisation. A CEO could access their office desktop PC from a tablet, while in another country.
