Studies estimate that by 2020, 30 billion devices will be connected to the Internet. Almost every business user on those devices will have significantly-higher expectations than they do today when it comes to communications, access and accessibility. With all the data generated by these devices, businesses will also need to greatly expand their IT security profile.

The workspace of the future must respond to this changing world and the AdobeStock_129125067-571072-edited.jpegdisruption caused by the cloud, mobility, cybersecurity, IoT and globalization. To ensure business agility and employee productivity while still keeping IT assets secure, businesses will need to deploy a digital workspace environment.

What Is a Digital Workspace?

The digital workspace is the defining model for end-user computing in today’s mobile cloud era—where business users can work anywhere on any device while IT still protect digital assets. This new approach to delivering IT integrates virtual apps, desktops, file share and file synchronization. The technology also securely delivers anytime access to any application.

Research and Markets, one of the world’s leading market research firms, projects the global digital workspace market will expand to $16.28 billion by the end of 2021.1 This trend is being driven and defined by today’s increasingly-mobile workforce, which wants  technologies that enable them to generate more revenue and make business processes run more efficiently.

Many businesses transform to a digital workspace because it enables employees to be more productive and to collaborate more efficiently with customers, colleagues and business partners. The “new office of today” also creates a unified approach to secure app and data delivery while turning any place into a physical workspace—with no technical limitations.

This gives end users unlimited flexibility in how and when they can get their jobs done in the office, at home and on the road. That adds up to a more productive workforce for the business!

Overcoming Digital Workspace Challenges

Making the transition to a digital workspace does present its challenges. For example—deciding how to allow users to access applications across a multitude of devices and how to manage a combination of corporate-owned and BYOD devices. It’s also difficult to build desktops on-the-fly as users log in and then attach applications and profiles that can be delivered in real time.

By turning to a solution provider with digital workspace expertise and access to the leading digital workspace technologies—such as Citrix—you can facilitate your transformation with best practices and tested solutions. The leading solutions also provide you with a custom architecture that integrates seamlessly with your existing environment.

That means you can continue to leverage the productivity systems you have already deployed!
