The nature of work has changed. Employees expect to work securely from anywhere, on any device, and they put a high premium on work that enriches and fulfills them. When their productivity tools enhance the quality and effectiveness of their work experience, they’re happier, more valuable, and more likely to stay. Companies need to provide that empowerment, but they also need to protect vital IT assets. It’s a fundamental operational change for organizations, and an opportunity to modernize the way we work.
With Microsoft Modern Workplace solutions designed and supported by CMC, organizations can improve employee productivity and satisfaction, and create more seamless communication and collaboration across locations and platforms while maintaining the security and integrity of systems and data.
What are the benefits?
Work with remote colleagues on
cloud-based versions of Office, jump on a quick video call, or reach out in chat.
Worry less about security
whether information is in the cloud, email, or employee devices. For example, you can block 99.9% of identity attacks with multi-factor authentication enabled.
by replacing in-person meetings with videoconferencing. And replace software costs with a monthly pay-as-you-go subscription.
Apps are kept up-to-date, so you won’t have to spend time on patches and upgrades. Plus, employees just sign in once to get access to all their apps, saving onboarding and troubleshooting time.
Support for growth
Organizations need solutions that can extend easily and affordably as their business changes and grows.
What are the components?
Windows 10 is a key component of the Modern Workplace. Designed and built with remote management in mind, Windows 10 enables users to quickly and securely get to work and start being productive. Allow your users flexibility to choose the right device for their function, whether it be a laptop, tablet, or Virtual Desktop (VDI). Coupled with supporting solutions such as Microsoft Endpoint Manager (formerly Intune) and exciting deployment capabilities such as Windows AutoPilot, organizations can quickly get users up and running, and ensure their systems are secure and up-to-date.
Microsoft 365 Apps
Microsoft 365 is a feature-rich toolkit designed for the modern mobile workforce. All parts of this cloud-enabled suite of applications and services are made to work in concert with one another. Microsoft Teams orchestrates and optimizes the features of the apps that users rely on every day to empower virtual work and productivity.
Access Windows 10 desktop and applications from anywhere, on any device.
Regardless of your device type bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and remote connect to your enterprise experience with Windows Virtual Desktop. Organizations can pick whatever Azure VM will meet their teams needs and leverage the Windows 10 multi-session advantage that only Azure offers. With Windows 10 multi-session, you can run multiple concurrent user interactive sessions easily with the same deployment for more cost efficiency.
Users now expect to be able to work from any location and not just the office. But how can organizations provide secure remote access? VPN has been the traditional answer for years but is an antiquated infrastructure solution to an app delivery problem. VPN solutions can also expose internal IT assets to unsecured and unmanaged endpoints. The Modern Workplace solution is a great place to start but sometimes organizations need to augment due to legacy line of business apps. To accommodate this use case, CMC recommends the Citrix Cloud platform to securely deliver apps and data to users. Citrix Cloud brings all the benefits of Citrix but is delivered as a hosted solution. This means organizations can get up and running quickly and ensure users stay productive.
