Bechtle : IT deployment and management in the age of New Work.

10/21/2021 | 06:24am EST
Modern Workplace - Oct 15, 2021
IT deployment and management in the age of New Work.

One man's joy is another man's pain. While New Work concepts can bring with them plenty of benefits such as more flexible working and a better work-life balance for employees, for IT departments, they mean having to manage environments that are becoming ever-more complex. It's a job made even more difficult by the increasing number of cyberattacks, but modern IT deployment and management can help relieve your IT staff of tedious and time-consuming routine tasks.

The days of new employees going to the IT department to get the password for their office computers are long gone. Today, the majority of our work is done online with cloud services, conferencing tools and remote accesses ensuring that everything runs smoothly. And while this flexibility is ideal for most employees, IT departments are left with a mammoth task of ensuring data protection and security at all times without negatively impacting the user experience. On top of all this is the fact that there are a wide-range of devices being used and IT don't generally have physical access to staff notebooks, tablets and smartphones, not to mention that setting up, provisioning and managing accounts requires extensive communication.

Automation saves time and resources.

Wherever there are recurring, routine tasks to be done, automation can help. In this case, when the computer or smartphone is turned on for the first time, they automatically receive the configurations assigned to them by IT. And it doesn't stop at automated set up. Devices can be managed in this way through out their entire lifecycle. All it takes is for the tools to be connected via an effective device management solutions, which is available from various manufacturers. Those looking to outsource some tasks won't go far wrong with Bechtle's SMART Workplace.

The one aspect these solutions have in common is that they allow all end devices and also individual applications to be managed from one single console, facilitating rollouts of security patches and updates with minimal effort. Another advantage is that monitoring of and compliance with company policies and data protection regulations is child's play, even when employees use their own personal devices.

The Modern Workplace concerns everyone.

By no means should the Modern Workplace be seen as purely something the IT department has to handle. Rather, it demands a cultural shift towards flat hierarchies and agile working and a complete rethink of communication and sharing data. For this reason, it's essential that the Modern Workplace is considered from a strategic point of view and with the IT department, management, departments and users working closely together. At first glance, it seems an impossible task to balance easy access to resources with security, but, with the right solutions, it's no problem at all.

As ever, the greatest risks to the IT infrastructure are posed, not by hackers, but by careless employees. For convenience, many still use the same easy-to-remember password for several accounts and if hackers get their hands on them, the world is their oyster. Unfortunately, calls to use secure passwords and only use those passwords once tend to fall on deaf ears.

Keeping passwords secure.

Against this backdrop, responsible IT management today has to take different steps to ensure security. One example is multi-factor authentication (MFA), which we all know from online banking, and which authenticates users using at least two different methods. This could be a password plus biometric data or using another app for authentication.

In this instance, modern smartphones play into the hands of administrators as, for the most part, the devices can be used as a second method of authentication. Another option is to set up one single access point for all shared resources. Or in other words, single sign-on. This is beneficial as the more passwords a person has to remember, the greater the risk that they will be used multiple times. A zero trust concept is also a possibility. Until now, in many companies, all it takes is an employee to log in once before they have access to parts or even the entire network. A zero trust concept, on the other hand, only gives employees access to exactly the resources they need to do their work.

The cloud is here to stay.

Employees working from home or on the road are one thing, and corporate IT is another. There aren't many companies today that can do without cloud-based resources such as Software as a Service (SaaS) and for good reason as they mean maintenance and support are much simpler, or you don't have to worry about these things at all. Plus, it's incredibly easy to scale capacities up and down as required. The situation is quite different and much more expensive for physical workstations in an office.

IT admins can enjoy the best of both worlds. VPN is still seen as the best way to secure external access, but while they are useful, they create a lot of work and are prone to errors. However, when combined with modern device management, access to most cloud apps can be secured using MFA, too.

Digital transformation begins at the top - 5 tips on becoming a digital leader.
Leading a team is no mean feat. People are fundamentally different in terms of what motivates them, how they can be supported to unfold their potential and hone their individual strengths, and modern managers also have to be able to lead hybrid, dispersed teams-bringing employees together who are physically separated. This is because modern organisations rely on flexible teams and agile methods in order to meet the demands of the market and their employees.

New Work - The fundamental transformation of companies in the hybrid age.
"Can I work from home tomorrow? Someone'll have to let the heating person in." This is not a sentence you'll hear very often anymore, because in a lot of companies, people connecting to the office within their own four walls is nothing worth talking about. Flexibility is the magic word. Yet the amenities of a modern workplace are not without their challenges, as the realities of existing structures often defy the hybrid workplace. Empowering a modern work style is not just a matter of giving people the right tools; it also takes a much more radical cultural shift.

The Digital Solutions Reflection Room: for better collaboration and more mindfulness.

Flexible, secure working, the way you like it-whether from the cloud, hybrid or on-prem.
For the past decades, it was a given to drive to the office every day and have all your colleagues working on premise at the same time, but this changed drastically throughout the course of the last year, when companies were forced to send their employees home. To keep businesses afloat, ways had to be found to collaborate virtually, even in places where it previously wasn't possible. Topics such as the compatibility of different technologies or the needs of employees often fell by the wayside. More and more people are returning to the office, but for many, working from at home has proven to be a good alternative that they would like to sustain for the future. The new normal of working will most likely be a hybrid of the two.

After four years of learning about virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) technologies from a scientific perspective as part of my doctorate, one thing was clear to me: now I want to promote the use of AR/VR in practice. At the Bechtle IT System House in Karlsruhe, my focus in the Modern Workplace division is therefore on these two technologies. In joint discussions, I help companies to use the technologies efficiently and profitably so that they offer added value for their processes and employees.

When the Handelsblatt Media Group sought to empower its employees with the workplace of the future, it reached out to Bechtle.

A seamless meeting experience relies on so much more than the use of modern devices. Alongside video and audio devices that integrate with each other, it's crucial to select the perfect collaboration platform. The decision should be based on whether it can be efficiently and easily used as at the end of the day, it's your employees who are going to have to work with it.
