From physical desktop To Virtual Desktop: How Companies’ IT Infrastructure Will Change
Before the coronavirus crisis, the percentage of Spaniards who could telework was very low. However, and during the health crisis, there was a growth of impression. To continue operating during confinement, companies had no choice but to accept remote work. Also, with this, they were promoting a revolution: the introduction of teleworking has already forever changed the offices and computer infrastructure of companies.
From the outset, the jump to telework during the coronavirus crisis and its implantation already unquestionable in companies have completely transformed the work environment. It is unlikely to return to the old normal in the coming months, and the new normal will bring with it remote work. The truth is that before the crisis the work model was already being changed, although the situation in recent months has accelerated the change.
Teleworking already made companies more flexible back then, responded to demands for conciliation, and made them more competitive. Now, it is also the key to maintaining security and hygiene measures and to respond to the challenges of the COVID-19.
Workers want remote work to be maintained. One of the latest studies, carried out by experts, indicates that 77% of people expect the future to come from combining work in the office with work done from home. They are clear that companies must be much more flexible from now on.
The impact of this change in culture at work is already being noticed even in the real estate market: an estimate indicates that the size of offices is decreasing by 30%. Telecommuting is here to stay and companies must adjust to these new rules.
The Key: A Suitable IT Infrastructure
Of course, the change in physical workspaces and daily routines is just one piece of the puzzle of jumping into telework. Possibly not even the most important. The key to making a successful telecommute jump is in technology. Companies need to adapt their IT infrastructure to the needs of teleworking and offer their employees those tools that will allow them to continue with their usual tasks without disruption. For this reason, telework and cloud computing binomials are a good way to face the new technological challenges for the company.
The cloud not only provides benefits for the company, such as more productivity or an improvement in the IT budget, but it is also the gateway that facilitates and allows remote work. Cloud computing makes telecommuting easier and more productive by allowing workers access to all services, data, and tools they have at the office. Solutions like the digital workspace simplify from collaborative work to information management. Also, telecommuting is part of a much more ambitious change. It is one of the digital transformations actions that companies must carry out and must be integrated with the digitization strategy. For example, a Gartner study points out that CFOs see teleworking as a way to maintain the efficiency of their companies: 74% will keep some positions remotely.
