Key Business Issues
Office to go
Today’s office professionals work almost anywhere and everywhere: not just at their desks, but in hotels, at airports, at the customer site, or from home. T-Systems has the solutions you need for a mobile and flexible workforce.
Nine-to-five desk jobs are a thing of the past. Today’s office staffers are often on the move, working at airports, in hotels, on trains, at home or at the customer site. Even so-called back-office employees are at their desks only 60 percent of the time. The rest of their working hours are taken up with meetings and workshops. And sales professionals typically spend even more of their time on the move.
This modern, mobile world is made possible by technology. For example, bank employees can log into the corporate network and download ready-to-sign contracts while sitting on the customer’s sofa.
Some keep their workspace in their back pockets – in the shape of USB sticks containing all the data and programs they need. With this equipment, they can even make productive use of long journeys.
The virtual workspace
Companies whose staff is frequently on the road can reduce the number of conventional workstations. When employees do come in to the office, they simply choose a free desktop system. Wherever they sit, they enjoy instant access to their data and apps via a thin client, i.e. a PC with limited capabilities whose storage space and processing power are provided by the data center. Experience suggests that this approach can reduce operating costs by up to a third.
