Today, work is no longer a place we go to. It’s an activity we do.
Thanks to technology, we can perform this activity anywhere, anytime. And with globalization, businesses need this flexibility so that they can stay ahead of the competition.
The nine-to-five and long commute concepts are slowly fading to make way for employee-centric and productive organizations.
As business becomes more mobile with each day, employees need secure and quick access to their organization’s data and applications to stay efficient and effective.
Thin clients are making all this possible. That’s why they’ve become popular.
What is a Thin Client?
The Benefits of Thin Clients
Want to know how thin clients can improve your organization’s efficiency by up to [x] per cent? Connect with us for a no-obligation meeting.
How to Deploy a Thin Client at Your Workplace?
o Choose an optimum approach – Decide whether you want to host the entire desktop environment on a server or just host applications and share them with desktop users.
o Gauge your network – At peak levels, how much load will each virtual desktop deliver? Ensure that your network’s bandwidth is enough to handle this load. Preferably have a little more bandwidth so that it becomes easier when you want to scale up.
o Map your hardware – Your data centre will need additional space to host your virtual desktops. So take into account the optimum hardware you’ll need for this.
o Test various thin clients – Not all organizations have the same requirement. A thin client that works for a competitor might not be the best for you. Test various thin client software to gauge which one best fulfils your business needs.
o Phase-Wise Deployment – Change your infrastructure at once and you might not have any fallback if things don’t go as planned. Roll out your VDI in a pilot phase and address all teething issues before you overhaul the IT infrastructure of your workplace.
Like we mentioned before, there is no one-size-fits-all thin client solution. Different businesses differ in requirements, priorities, and end goals. It’s best to consult an expert who will survey your IT infrastructure and offer you the ideal solution for your business.
Thin clients empower your workforce to improve efficiency while maintaining the strict compliance standards that your organization should meet.
Making the virtual workspace a reality for your business will lead to a reduction in cost and increase in efficiency. It will also make your organization more effective because your people will handle tasks effectively, regardless of geography and time zone.
Technology is helping the consumer and business world evolve. Leverage it to give you maximum returns and keep yourself ahead of the competition.
