Today’s workforce wants to work from any device, in any location, securely, and with a great user experience. However, organisations are facing the same problems when it comes to supporting users.
Maintaining a fleet of computers running native applications isn’t ideal, especially when you think about installing new apps, managing updates, and provisioning users.
The foundational needs of end-user computing — providing access to enterprise-provided applications and workloads — haven’t changed much since the beginning, but the methods by which this goal is accomplished have transformed over the years.
