Accelerate Business Through a Cost-efficient Virtual Workforce: Citrix Transforms IT into an On-Demand Service for Virtual Workers
Today, workers in a single organisation may span physical locations worldwide, from a financial services employee working at a remote branch office, to a doctor roaming the halls of a hospital checking on patients, to an outsourced call centre worker in an offshore location to an employee or even contractor working from home. While a virtual workforce provides many tangible benefits to organisations, it also increases the complexity of the challenges associated with delivering IT to a variety of user scenarios. The challenges include managing productivity and collaboration across various worker types, while securely delivering applications, data, communications, and support to ensure that these workers are as productive as possible, no matter where they are located. These challenges can be easily addressed if the right IT solution is put into place as a foundation for support.
This white paper defines a virtual workforce, describes the challenges and requirements that organisations face when supporting a virtual workforce, and explains how Citrix solutions can address these requirements and scale accordingly to foster and support future growth.
