Accelerating Remote Work: It’s All About Experiences

Collaboration | Posted on July 21, 2020 by Softchoice Advisor

In collaboration with Cisco.

If you’re prioritizing the acceleration of remote work right now, how are you delivering fast, spread out and great experiences every time?

Coming out of the acute crisis climate of COVID-19, many organizations faced the struggles of forced change, but also found some upside in the disruption.

Now is a time of both urgency and opportunity when anything is possible. What are you prioritizing?

Many organizations we work with are prioritizing the acceleration of remote work as a cornerstone of their digital transformations. When we talk with them about remote work, the conversation always comes back to experiences – both for employees internally and with customers externally. More specifically, how fast, spread out and great can those experiences be every time?

To answer that question and provide guidance on achieving that goal, we created the Best Practices Guide, Ready for Any Eventuality: Accelerating into Today’s Remote Work Reality in partnership with Cisco.

In the guide, we examine 4 core remote work capabilities – network, data center, collaboration and security – from the perspective of:

  • Compelling lessons learned so far
  • What organizations know now
  • Best practices for delivering effective experiences
  • How Softchoice can help

Here are some key highlights from the guide.

Key Highlights 

Network:

The location and scope of remote work will continue to change with every iteration of the next normal.

Best Practices:

Transition to a modernized digital network that supports quality user and application experiences.

Data Center:

The data center is fundamental, but the architecture can be complex and precarious. There is an opportunity to optimize and modernize.

Best Practices:

Achieve increased capacity and performance in the data center through simplified architecture.

Collaboration:

For both internal and external interactions, users expect rich, elegant and life-like experiences.

Best Practices:

Deliver an “office” quality experience every time through expanded capabilities, streamlined licensing and effective adoption.

Security:

Security must touch everything, but there also must be a balance between security and productivity (especially with distributed employees).

Best Practices:

Promote confidence in security when the boundaries of working are still in flux.

Staying focused on the experience

At Softchoice, experiences trump technology every time. If you’re looking to accelerate remote work and remain ready for whatever is to come, fast, spread out and great experiences are a vital goal. It’s important to be both intentional and decisive in how you proceed in your digital transformation.

When urgency and opportunity collide the way they are now, the partnership is paramount. Softchoice offers expertise based on precedents, broad Cisco knowledge and complementary capabilities to help you decipher, plan for, implement and enable adoption of the options that can help you deliver effective experiences to your employees and customers.
