Digital Transformation in a Modern Workplace
Many organisations are now reaping the rewards of having a robust IT digital transformation strategy in place – with increased productivity, greater collaboration and output, improved customer relationships and employee morale, to name but a few of the long list of benefits. In addition, the adoption of a ‘mobile first’ philosophy giving employees the ability to work anywhere, at any-time is fast becoming the norm. IT technology needs to therefore be fit for purpose if an organisation is to continue to thrive, especially as digital transformation is set to continue as we enter into the next decade.
“80% of companies see a demand from their organisation for technology services”
The Technology Shift
In-house IT resources are often stretched to capacity making it difficult and financially unviable for companies to devote time, effort and budget to manage and maintain IT infrastructure as well as the myriad of different devices across the entire organisation. As a result, we still see many companies operating on older and outdated IT legacy systems where devices are unaligned to the user requirement needed for a Modern Workplace.
Furthermore, as end of support for Windows 7 fast approaches this issue will be further compounded for some as Microsoft ceases to provide critical updates and support after 14th January 2020.
So what can a business do about upgrading its IT legacy system?
The move to a Tech-as-a-Service (TaaS) Model
At Opus we advise many organisations of all sizes to consider shifting to a services-based, subscription model for their IT consumption. Known as Tech-as-a-Service (TaaS), TaaS allows businesses to combine the latest hardware, software and associated services and IT support into a single offering on a price per seat per month basis.
What are the benefits of TaaS?
Businesses who move to the Tech-as-a-Service model can enjoy access to the latest hardware and software technology with a wrap of tailored service and support around it. Software updates, upgrades and installations can be included in a service package and all managed externally giving CIO’s more freedom to focus on other core business activities and game changing digital transformation strategies.
The cost of implementing a totally new IT infrastructure as capital expenditure can be huge, however, with the TaaS subscription model, companies can budget more effectively for change and upscale gradually or in-line with business growth.
The move to TaaS ultimately means that all employees will have access to the latest technology, updates and refreshes that will build a Modern Workplace.
