The division of labor between humans, machines and algorithms will create 133 million new roles in the coming years, predicts the World Economic Forum. In addition, and according to the latest report Future of Work de Ricoh Europe, 61% of employees are optimistic about the opportunities that technology will bring to work flexibly and productively.
The trend was already here, but the Covid crisis has accelerated the digital transformation of many companies that, to maintain their business, have been forced to adapt ahead of schedule with new ways of working.
Concepts such as talent, creativity and productivity are now combined with those of flexibility, collaboration and security to adapt the work centers and their human capital to a constantly changing landscape that defines the present and the future of work.
What are the new jobs like?
The confinement caused by the health pandemic has shown that the companies that have best withstood the crisis have been those that have kept jobs from anywhere and anywhere without losing their efficiency.
The digital workplace must meet five requirements: digitization and automation of organizational processes; safe and agile access to work applications and company information; collaboration and communication with colleagues and partners; remote support from anywhere and comprehensive security.
Transforming the technological ecosystem and adapting it to a context marked by the complexity of managing communications between central computing centers and all remote locations is essential for companies to be able to respond to new ways of working, communicating and selling. Added to this is the relocation of IT (information technology) burdens in the new paradigm hybrid cloud Y multicloud.
For organizations to be able to confront these changes with guarantees, they need an agile and intelligent work platform managed from a single point of control, such as Workspace One.
This solution allows addressing the different areas involved, such as the comprehensive management of the life cycle of devices, operating systems, applications and identity management, as well as the adoption of collaborative tools to maintain connections and the definition of a security plan of information, explain from IPM, to Ricoh Company, which has developed this tool to allow companies to save time and costs, in addition to simplifying and automating processes.
Agility, consistency and quality
Most organizations get bogged down on their transformation journeys due to legacy infrastructure bottlenecks. IT transformation is necessary to provide the computing agility and scalability necessary to better support employees and customers. Also to speed up the time to market for new products and services.
Implementing hybrid cloud computing is often a first step in this process. But transforming the data center into a hybrid cloud is not an easy task. You need to assess the internal skills, culture, finances, and complexity of your existing IT infrastructure and choose a vendor that can fill the gaps in your business.
This hybrid cloud journey requires constant monitoring and management with an eye to the future, hence the importance of choosing IT service providers that bring next-generation data center technologies and services within reach, providing an environment end-to-end unified hybrid cloud as proposed IPM, a Ricoh Company Y Dell Technologies, which are nominated as key partners to accompany companies on their path to digitization.
Not all applications are suitable for a certain cloud solution. With the proliferation of options, the biggest challenge in managing a true hybrid cloud experience is providing a cohesive environment, even when managing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) or managing complex application portfolio requirements across multiple sites with different user profiles in different cloud environments.
The solution is to implement infrastructure and consistent operations in the cloud. Cloud-enabled hyperconverged infrastructure, such as the Dell EMC VxRail appliance, is considered the answer to many of these challenges, especially when it comes to dealing with the lack of operational simplicity and common infrastructure elements.
VMware Cloud Foundation closes this gap, helping enterprises extend the common infrastructure abstraction layer to the cloud and providing a consistent view for networking, compute, and storage for application and workloads, such as VDI. This not only improves productivity, data protection, and consistency of the workloads themselves, but also offers significant cost savings.
