Updated: Nov 7
Why working from home needs your attention?
Let's be honest. This crisis hit IT departments across the industry unprepared. Setting up all those virtual desktop environments for remote working for all your employees, in such a short time is hard. Very hard. Working from home can be of great benefit for the company at this time, but scaling up everything from infrastructure to management services is more easily said than done and comes at a cost. If you add the complexity of different desktops, different needs, compliance constraints, and security requirements, the task becomes unbearable.
