The COVID-19 outbreak and the disruptions it wrought have fundamentally changed the way businesses operate and how work gets done. Organizations have now embraced remote and hybrid work models as part of their everyday operations. IDC estimates that by 2023, 75% of the G2000 will provide technical parity to a workforce that is hybrid by design, rather than by chance, enabling them to collaborate separately and in real-time. Indeed, the future of work is going to be radically different from the past, and how effectively enterprises enable and empower their workforces to operate optimally in any environment will determine their success in this new hybrid future.
The future of work vision demands a workspace environment that is agile, experience-centric, customizable, secure and sustainable while delivering all these features in a way that provides tangible and significant financial benefits to the adopting enterprise. The DaaS offering is well-equipped and uniquely positioned to deliver and address the slew of challenges that enterprises face as they transition to a new work model. It focuses on enabling employees wherever they are, creating a better workforce experience that translates into a stronger organizational culture, strengthening the organizational security posture to secure an increased organizational surface area, and demonstrating unwavering commitment to aspirational environmental and sustainability goals.
