Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) started a blaze that is shifting how we work in all industries. Have you ever brought work home from the office only to realise you can’t do it because you need something from your work computer?

Cloud technology has enabled VDI so employees can see their work desktop from practically anywhere enabling them to work from anywhere at any time. We are an increasingly mobile society and VDI enables your workplace to be too.

In the end, this isn’t really about VDI, it’s about mobility. The workplace of the future allows any employee to do anything they could do in the office, no matter where they are.

That’s the target for companies transforming their workplaces.

 

How to embrace the new developments:

Is your workplace a mobile one? I’m not talking about being agile, but do you have smaller things in place that allow your employees the flexibility to work from the breakout seating as easily as connecting in the meeting room?


Around the building

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi

Connected buildings ensure that, no matter where a person’s work takes them, they have the digital connectivity they need. At Accolade, we make sure that our solutions offer the ability for people to work anywhere in the building. So, you can access your secure network from the office, meeting rooms, breakout area or even around the outside of the building.

Wi-Fi

Internet of Things

Smart Internet of Things (IoT) workspaces will finally start to replicate smart homes, the connected workspace will enable us to be ultra-efficient.

Sensors provide data on noise, light levels and temperature which allow companies to direct employees feeling the cold to a seat on the warm side of the office, or to a quieter space when they need to focus. It’s amazing how positively people respond to these personal gestures and the popularity of this technology is set to soar.

Wi-Fi

Lockers

More and more companies are providing space to store belongings in a central location to give employees more flexibility to move around. Keep tech secure when you need to keep it in a safe place. Post flaps allow you to dish out hard copies too.
