Building a Remote Workplace in the New Normal

Translating employee needs into realities

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.

Challenges of building the remote workplace

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.


Stakeholders buy-in

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.


Service continuity

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.


Enterprise data

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.


Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

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.


Self-service functionality

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.
