Cloud Computing Brings Greater Agility and Robust Security to Retail Firms
Workspot Delivers Virtual Desktops, Apps to Any Device
ESSENTIAL AGILITY AND SECURITY
Retail enterprises are among the most macro-economically sensitive businesses, operating in a highly competitive environment. Solutions that provide maximum agility to the enterprise and can scale based on market conditions and workforce fluctuations are of utmost importance. At the same time, security related issues around sensitive and regulated client data,or employing remote workers and offshore developers have never been more challenging. And as firms grow, whether through mergers and acquisitions or expansion into new geographies, IT infrastructure must easily scale to support new opportunities.
RETAIL FIRMS FACE UNIQUE CHALLENGES
Physical desktops as endpoint devices do not meet the security needs of retail enterprises. As a result, many retail firms have deployed traditional, on-premises VDI only to be caught by surprise at the complexity and everrising OpEx that goes with it. Moreover, virtual desktop and application implementations can take 6-9 months and require expensive IT specialists. Collectively, these solutions present serious challenges for retail IT teams:
- Inflexibility while operating in a dynamic macro environment poses serious risk to the retail enterprise
- Massive over provisioning required to support total workforce, leading to poor capacity utilization
- Inability to provide secure and high-performance access to apps and data for offshore developers
- Lack of seamless integration with document management systems (DMS), time tracking and eDiscovery solutions
- Unreliable legacy VDI solutions burn IT cycles and lower employee productivity
- Costly, redundant infrastructure required for disaster preparedness
Moreover, when retail firms grow, they face the additional challenge of provisioning desktops for the sudden influx of new users. Delays in onboarding new employees directly affect the bottom line.
