It started with Wi-Fi access and boomed! Then the work life balance generation came on strong, and now COVID-19. Working remotely, although not a new concept for some of us who's role requires travel, has exploded and is now a necessity due to the recent pandemic. Companies went from an average of 80% of their workforce required to operate in an office environment (on-prem), to 100% remote in an instant. IT teams should be commended for facilitating the process so quickly with some having limited resources at their disposal. Nonetheless, the biggest challenge now is that what, companies thought would be a temporary setup is not going away anytime soon. Some Silicon Valley organizations are instructing their workers to work remotely until at least the late Fall timeframe; Google plans on keeping workers remote until as late as October of 2021 and potentially longer.
While at the inaugural IGEL #DisruptEUC 2018 conference which took place at the AMD Headquarters in Austin, Texas, VMblog spoke with Rob Green, CTO of Dizzion, to learn more about the company's Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering and to find out how the company is partnering and working with IGEL. Green also outlined some of the key takeaways from the DaaS panel discussion in which he took part.
