Remote Work Considerations – Remote Work is Hell for IT - Evolve IP - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

Remote Work Considerations – Remote Work is Hell for IT

Having provided virtual desktop and infrastructure solutions for over 11 years Evolve IP has seen a massive shift take place in the way IT is providing applications to end users.  11 years ago, customers were utilizing 90% client-server based software.  Meaning companies would acquire a server, whether physical or virtual, install the application and then install the client on each user’s desktop.   

Now, fast forward to today and I would argue that the number is down to around 25%. So, where are all those applications moving?  It should be no surprise when I write Software as a Service (SaaS).  Companies like Salesforce.com, ADP, Concur, Outreach are all delivered via a browser with no software to install. 

For the purpose of this post, I’ll be using the term “before” to describe how applications were delivered to end users in the “old days” and “after” to describe how applications are delivered now.  Our first post looked at the changing role of Active Directory, the second showed how SaaS has caused IT to play Defense in the Wild West. Today’s topic is BYOD and Remote Work. 

For years, the business ruled the device decision.  IT would provide a spec to purchasing who would go out to Dell, HP and Lenovo in search of 2 things.  The best price and the most standardization.  This was done to make IT’s life easier.  The fewer drivers the better.  Everyone gets the same device … office worker or road warrior, accountant or marketer, you were getting the same exact device.  Which made sense back then. 

But the explosion of SaaS, and therefore much lower dependence on IT provided resources, has shifted the power of choosing which device a user will utilize to accomplish their job function.  What was forecasted for years in the making is now finally here and mainstream – the BYOD revolution.  Users are demanding to be able to do their jobs from their favorite devices whether iPad, desktop or personal laptops.  And what’s shocking is that, according to Gartner, this choice is increasingly affecting whether top candidates take or stay in a position within a given organization.  Thus, forcing the business to push even more for a BYOD stance.  

For the last few years, virtual desktops (VDI) or desktops as a service (DaaS) have been somewhat of a band-aid in this department.  IT figured out a way to give users access to a desktop OS from pretty much any device that has an internet connection while still being able to enforce some of those corporate controls mentioned above. This was a great step in the right direction but it still didn’t provide the native experience users desired for Mac devices, tablets etc.
