Digital Workspace Solution

Bring office dynamics into the virtual realm with Digital Workspaces in the cloud

Digital workspaces are a critical component of remote and hybrid work. They bring into the digital realm many real-world dynamics which have so far been exclusive to office spaces. These can be asynchronous communications, real-time document collaboration, whiteboards, project management boards.

What is a Digital Workspace?

A digital workspace is an online environment in which employees can collaborate and create regardless of their physical location or the devices they use. It is a technology framework which brings together applications, data, and secure communications into a single cloud-delivered digital workspace solution. By hosting all components in a cloud environment, employees get access to an end-to-end solution with nothing else than a device and internet connectivity.

Benefits of Using a Digital Workspace Solution

Digital workspaces solutions bring forward a unique set of benefits such as:

  • Access to a Global Workforce: Rather than having a limited base pool of talent based on a single location, a digital workspace solution can bring together minds from all over the world.
  • Full Audit Trails: Every event in the digital space leaves its own time-stamped footprint. This ensures all actions are recorded such that we can always look back on what happened, and provide evidence where required.
  • Operational Continuity:: Built on enterprise-grade infrastructure, a digital workspace boasts >99% uptime and can be accessed from any device and any place.

Create a Digital Workspace using Deskop-as-a-Service (DaaS)

DaaS are a key enabler for creating Digital Workspaces. They enable remote work and collaboration by hosting applications in a cloud environment, delivering a full desktop experience to employees as-a-service/through a web portal.
Digital Workspace solutions offer benefits such as:

  • Less Physical Hardware: Rather than investing copious amounts of CapEx in depreciated physical assets such as laptops, desktop computers, or other peripherals, company resources can be accessed using lightweight or personal devices.
  • Enhanced Security: Even by connecting through the public internet, digital workspace solution uses virtual private networks to encrypt traffic to and from the cloud infrastructure.
  • Guaranteed Uptime: Digital workspace providers are solely responsible for ensuring 99.95% uptime and employ many disaster recovery and redundancy technologies.
  • Centralized IT: All workspace components, from applications to data and virtual infrastructure are hosted in the cloud and centrally managed by the IT functions, offering greater control and better policy enforcement.
  • Easy Onboarding: The processes of bringing in new employees or contractors can be fully automated, providing access to the resources without having to deal with hardware management.
  • Anywhere, any device: Resources can be accessed regardless of location, through either a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or light Raspberry Pi device.
