As the demand to work remotely skyrocketed in 2020 due to COVID, several businesses struggled to keep pace with extending remote access for employees while maintaining high security, productivity, and quality levels in the initial phase.
The traditional applications and infrastructure used by most businesses presented operational complications – checking compatibility in the cloud, augmenting existing applications to function in the cloud, and optimizing each application individually and as part of a holistic network.
Digital transformation can be complicated for established businesses. The pre-existing infrastructure and software you use both need to be translated to operate remotely without compromising quality.
Trianz understands this, and that’s why our remote workplace consulting services are designed to enable your employees to be creative and productive, irrespective of location.
It can be challenging to know where to start when looking to digitalize your IT operations. Enterprise IT networks are interwoven with numerous dependencies and integrations that can complicate the digitalization process.
Before your digital transformation can even begin, you need the support of key stakeholders across the business. This means you will need to convey all the benefits of digital transformation to get CXOs on board. Each department has budgetary constraints and technological requirements, requiring you to develop a holistic, business-wide digital transformation plan to get the project off the ground.
Any business-critical applications will still need to run during the digital transformation, and any ingested data needs to be consistent after digitalization is complete. This poses a risk of data loss during this interim period when the two systems diverge from using a single source of the truth (SSOT). Your plan must implement safeguards that guarantee data retention before and after digitalization is complete.
Enterprises may not have a SSOT. Many businesses have multiple databases for individual applications, which can further complicate the process of digital transformation. Without SSOT, the data will need to be standardized, cleaned, and moved without sacrificing validity or integrity.
Many businesses use on-prem VDI solutions for their staff. This allows employees to work from any location with an internet connection – excellent for telecommuting scenarios. Given the optimal latency and bandwidth of on-prem VDI, it can be challenging to justify using the cloud. Most major cloud platforms offer Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), which offers server hardware close to your geographical location. This helps to minimize latency and offers lower operating costs thanks to cloud cost efficiencies.
Security takes center stage while setting up an effective remote workplace environment. You must take additional steps to secure the data and access, including encrypting data while at rest, implementing multi-factor authentication, and controlling access to critical corporate applications.
As your business grows and the workforce expands, your IT department will need assistance to reduce its workloads. You can empower internal and external service users with self-service capabilities. By automatically provisioning software and automating password reset requests, you can reduce IT workloads and improve productivity across the business.
Trianz has helped several organizations with seamless remote working solutions. Leveraging a wide range of independent software vendor (ISV) applications, on-prem, and cloud IT infrastructure solutions, we can help you run seamless business operations, irrespective of location or any contingencies, such as climate disasters, without risk to your data, security, or quality.
The remote workplace is the future of enterprise computing, and you must start now to be future-ready. We can help – please get in touch with one of our experts to further discuss any of the above.
For decades, Windows served as the workhorse of the business world. In recent years, however, a significant transformation has occurred with the rise of cloud infrastructure platforms. Enterprises now realize that legacy on-premises Windows workloads are impeding their progress. Core challenges include licensing costs, scalability issues, and reluctance to embrace digital transformation.Explore
Connecting more people to data has become imperative for organizations worldwide. In Top Trends in Data & Analytics for 2022, Gartner stated, “Connections between diverse and distributed data and people create truly impactful insight and innovation. These connections are critical to assisting humans and machines in making quicker, more accurate, trustworthy, and contextualized decisions while considering an increasing number of factors, stakeholders, and data sources.”Explore
Since the dawn of business, users have looked for three main components when it comes to data: Search | Secure| Share. Now let's talk about the evolution of data over the years. It's a story in itself if one pays attention. Back then, applications were created to handle a set of processes/tasks. These processes/tasks, when grouped logically, became a sub-function, a set of sub-functions constituted a function, and a set of functions made up an enterprise. Phase 1 – Data-AwareExplore
Practitioners in the data realm have gone through various acronyms over the years. It all started with "Decision Support Systems" followed by "Data Warehouse", "Data Marts", "Data Lakes", "Data Fabric", and "Data Mesh", amongst storage formats of RDBMS, MPP, Big Data, Blob, Parquet, Iceberg, etc., and data collection, consolidation, and consumption patterns that have evolved with technology.Explore
Enterprises have, over time, invested in a variety of tools, technologies, and methodologies to solve the critical problem of managing enterprise data assets, be it data catalogs, security policies associated with data access, or encryption/decryption of data (in motion and at rest) or identification of PII, PHI, PCI data. As technology has evolved, so have the tools and methodologies to implement the same. However, the issue continues to persist. There are a variety of reasons for the same:Explore
Finding Hidden Patterns and Correlations Innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) are transforming the way we approach data analytics. AI, ML and NLP are categorized under the umbrella term of “cognitive analytics,” which is an approach that leverages human-like computer intelligence to identify hidden patterns and correlations in data.Explore
