Workspace management comprises far more than just the reliable operation of computers, laptops, and smartphones. Traditional lifecycle management is no longer adequate on account of the increasingly multifaceted nature of the modern workplace, increasingly complex software solution requirements, and the rising number of end devices used by individual employees. The magic word here is digital workspace management, which enables you to manage hardware, software products, access and license rights.
This management method is based on a holistic approach where the user is the main focus, not the technology in use. Leading analysts and IT administrators and users alike appreciate modern workspace management solutions. They can better benefit from increased flexibility when selecting the specific workplace device and from the easy availability of business data. Here's how it works: A workspace management solution consolidates all the requirements (company, legal, or user requirements) in the background. Processes are adapted and automated and the users have significant opportunities to design their workspace to meet their own individual requirements. This can be implemented by introducing a Service Store, for example.
The digital workspace management of the future goes one step further. Here, the idea is for the employee to identify themselves once through a central platform. The system then automatically detects all further requirements and it is no longer necessary to enter passwords for SaaS solutions or company-specific programs. This is good news for users and it ensures data and access security for the company, and the IT administrator is freed up from tedious additional admin work.
The trend goes even further: The use of software solutions is set to be simplified. We are increasingly seeing individual business apps for special challenges being used at the expense of traditional on-premise solutions. What's more, different end devices are often used in parallel, further complicating the process of synchronizing data between the smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Here too, innovative workplace management solutions work on an overarching level to consolidate all of the required data and make life easier for both the IT administrator and the user.
