Remote Work – It’s Here to Stay

Reasons Why Remote Work Benefits Employees & Companies

Remote work benefits employees and companies is the resiliency of having the technology in place to mobilize workforces overnight. The remote work environment is here to stay. It is true; we were all sent home to work remotely under duress. Employees and companies discovered unexpected benefits from a work-from-home (WFH) environment. Remote work has its pros and cons, but mostly, people like being able to work remotely.

16% of Companies Worldwide are 100% Remote in 2022
41% of US Workers are Fully Remote.

2022 is almost over, and companies are still trying to decide whether to continue having a remote workforce, head back to the office, or devise a solution combining the two. Employees and many job seekers want the flexibility to work from home.

80% of US Workers Would Reject a Job Offer That Didn’t Include a Flexible Work Environment

(PR Newswire Study 2021)

As the CEO of the research firm Ladders says,

“This change in a working arrangement is impossible to overhype. As big as it is, it’s even bigger than people think.”

 

Gartner reports that remote work is a cornerstone of the post-pandemic future of work. A Gallup poll from the beginning of the year showed that half of the remote-capable employees prefer a hybrid work environment. The popularity of the flexible work phenomenon is as beneficial for the company as it is for employees. There’s a more extensive selection of qualified candidates for the growing digital economy opportunities. Having the technological capacity for a productive virtual environment could help define who gets to work in a digital economy and which companies will thrive.

Benefits to Companies Offering Flexible Work Environments

  • Reduction of Operating Costs
  • No Need for Physical Expansion
  • Increase of Productivity
  • Multi-region infrastructure Drives Better Collaboration
  • Access to Global Talent Pool
  • Higher Employee Retention

 

No Overhead

Employee mobility is part of the digital economy. In the digital era, a modern IT infrastructure means having to untether workforces from having to work in a specific location. Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is a cloud-based technology that enables work to happen from anywhere on any device. Working from anywhere on any device eliminates the costs of leasing office space, buying furniture, paying for utilities, and other overhead expenses. The elimination of overhead costs is significant. By allowing remote work, IBM eliminated 58 million square feet of office space and saved $50 million in real estate expenses. The cost savings are significant for small businesses as well. The JCA insurance agency no longer pays for a 4,000-square-foot office and the overhead that goes with that. Watch Video. Being a remote employer helps JCA’s bottom line.

Increases in Focus and Engagement Produces Higher Productivity

The experiment on mass WFH orders showed that people got more work done. They no longer had to commute and didn’t have the distractions of working in an office environment. Many studies show that remote work leads to increased productivity and better performance. Hiring new employees is an expensive process for companies. The average expense is around $4,000 and usually takes weeks, sometimes months, to fill. A recent Stanford University study showed a 13% increase in productivity; workers took fewer breaks, were more satisfied with their jobs, and reduced attrition rates by half.

The disadvantages of not setting up the capabilities to work remotely cut deeper than being less attractive to job seekers or losing existing employees who want more flexibility. Establishing a remote-ready IT infrastructure means leadership is being proactive; they’re at once forward-leaning and remembering the lessons of the pandemic.

The Virtual Workspace

A recent Gartner study predicts that 70% of Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) leaders deploying DaaS will exceed their budgets due to a lack of proactive cost management. The configuration of each virtual machine impacts the amount of money spent on DaaS. IronOrbit prevents clients from spending on services they don’t need by having multiple options for its INFINITY Workspaces. There is an INFINITY Workspaces solution to fit each use case. For example, power workers need more run more GPU-enabled applications like Autodesk’s Revit. Process workers need basic applications such as Microsoft Office.

Aside from the obvious benefits to an organization workforce mobility can bring, having the IT infrastructure to shift from office to home at a moment’s notice fortifies a company from future volatility and unexpected disruptions. Having a cloud-based IT environment makes a company more resilient. Cloud computing has become a proactive measure that safeguards business continuity. Companies can scale up or down quickly, and the process is effortless. Sharing information becomes more efficient when you combine cloud technology and managed services. Things like product development and decision-making happen faster. Connectivity boost productivity because your workforce, including your IT department, can focus on more value-to-the-customer tasks.

Technology There When You Need It

When the pandemic lockdown occurred, businesses on the cloud could adapt to the new remote working norms quicker and more efficiently than those that weren’t.

Be Prepared for the Unexpected

Leveraging IronOrbit’s technology allows companies to provision desktops quickly. A workspace can become accessible to users from anywhere while maintaining the required security protections to meet the highest compliance standards.

It was the day the lockdown began in Washington.

One of our clients, Mark Gallant of the Truss Company View Case Study, sat in an emergency meeting. Everybody was under a great deal of stress, except for him. Company leaders asked, “How are our employees going to work? How can we continue to serve our customers?” Mark smiled because he knew they already had a ready-made solution to the problem. Months prior, they had moved to IronOrbit’s cloud environment. Now, they had to have everyone grab their computers, go home, and log on.

Your company might be one of those organizations still making decisions on the question of your work environment. Whether it’s back to the office, completely remote, or a combination of the two, one thing is clear. Business continuity in the digital economy demands a flexible and elastic IT environment. One that moves when you move. The longer you wait to migrate to the cloud, the more you risk losing your competitive advantage.

IronOrbit can ensure your company has the resiliency it needs to future-proof against almost any scenario.

What’s the Difference Between Digitization & Digitalization?

Don’t Confuse Digitization with Digitalization.

The terms digitization and digitalization are often mistaken for one another. They mean different things, and it’s important not to confuse them.

Digitization is not digital transformation.

Why is it Important to Know the Difference?

Understanding what the two words mean is not just about semantics. To confuse the two sets up unreasonable expectations and shortchanges the importance of digital transformation. Bewilderment could put your company in jeopardy. You think you’re accomplishing one thing when you’re doing something else. These two things have to go in sequence. To skip steps or jump ahead for expediency creates problems down the road.

Digital Technologies Are Raising the Bar Every Day

Let’s begin with the fundamental building block known as digitization. Digitizing is a primary building block. You must digitize operations if you’re going to remain competitive. But keep in mind that digitizing is only half the story.

What is Digitization?

Digitization, or digitizing, is the conversion of analog to digital technology. Digitization improves what we’ve always done in companies. Digitization minimizes using paper because you’re no longer using paper and pen. You’re inputting data into a desktop or mobile device using keyboard strokes. Sometimes, you’re simply scanning a bar code or QR Code (QR codes store far more information and responsiveness is ten times faster than bar codes). 

Digitizing existing processes has the following benefits:

  • Better Customer Experience
  • Increased Mobility
  • Lower Operational Costs
  • Faster Processes
  • Improved Decision Making
  • Secure & Accessible-Anywhere Information
  • Increased Productivity

Once you replace analog with digital processes, you’ll notice significant reductions in print volume and costs. Digital files transfer quickly, update instantly, and are much easier to track. A standard KPI of digitizing would be a cost-cutting metric. Using digital technologies and digitizing data improves productivity and can create new revenue streams.

Enhanced Productivity & Outcomes

A digitized company has the distinct advantage of having faster, more agile, and more scalable workflows. Adopting new tools happens more quickly and efficiently than with legacy systems. The entire information infrastructure becomes connected to quarterly goals and business outcome targets. Digitizing offers significant operational improvements such as boosting efficiencies and enhancements with customer experience. Plus, digitizing opens the door to innovations impossible in an analog environment.

What is Digitalization?

Digitalization indicates a company is in the process of moving to the second half of the story. You know you’re a digital company when you begin delivering new customer value propositions that are digitally delivered. That is becoming digital.

Gartner defines digitalization as going beyond digitization. Its use of digital tech changes a business model and provides new revenue and other value-producing opportunities.

Brand New Value Propositions

What problem can you solve for your customers that you never considered part of your mandate? Move beyond traditional products and services to solve your customer’s problems.

Digitalization involves a paradigm shift in the culture and changes the business model. That is why digitalization could lead to a complete digital transformation of your business. The journey involves creating strategies that leverage digital capabilities to innovate new value propositions.

Digitization vs. Digitalization

Digitization involves a one-time implementation. On the other hand, digitalization demands developing new processes and strategies over time. The best-case scenarios would be accumulative, with a tiny success building upon another.

Digitization is about operational excellence. As an improvement of existing processes, you do the same things you’ve always done, only better.
Digitalization is about rapid business innovation to deliver new customer value propositions.

The Importance of Using the Right Technology

Because not everyone in your company is tech-friendly, investing in technology that is easy to use and accessible is crucial. Everyone from C-level executives to managers and frontline employees must work together to drive digital innovation and business outcomes. Companies that make digital tools accessible throughout their organization achieve higher proficiency levels. With these gains in place, it’s easier to reimagine every aspect of business operations.

More About People Than About Technology

While digitalization is still mainly about using digital technology, the processes and strategies that arise require new skills and the adoption of new ways of doing business. Realizing the full benefits of digitalization means investing in new skills training and developing process agility. Transformational benefits arise from creating a company culture that inspires widespread frequent experimentation.

Most business leaders still rely on outdated organizational structures to implement strategies. They are unaware of how structure inhibits agility. Business strategy must, at all times, be fluid. People, processes, data, and technology synchronize continuously to identify and deliver innovative customer solutions. Another handicap of traditionally structured corporations is that it is too slow.

The journey requires organizational changes that are customer-centric. The journey leverages technology and needs leadership support. Digitalization empowers and enables employees and customers by leveraging technology and opening all company levels to experimentation and exploration. That’s why the IT Director needs to be a part of the business planning discussions.

Digital Business Design

People refer to the business design as business architecture. Most people think of architecture as the purview of the IT department. If you have a business architecture function, it’s usually part of your IT division. By contrast, digital business design is the responsibility of senior executives and IT leaders.

Ultimately, all businesses must become digital to thrive in a digital economy. The ones that will be most successful at this will be those that design themselves for it. Digital design, not strategy, will separate the winners from the losers.

Just to Recap

Digitization converts information from a physical format to digital. Digitizing is a prerequisite building block of digitalization. Digitalization is the more advanced stage that can lead to digital transformation. Digital transformation is about futureproofing and resiliency.

CONCLUSION

Modernizing operations means digitizing as a fundamental first step. Digitizing can lead to digitalization. A company can implement a series of digitalization projects like automating processes, developing employee skills, and innovating new ways to leverage digital technology, but digital transformation is more than implementing various projects.

Digital transformation is a long slow journey that requires company-wide involvement and participation. Few companies are designed for digital. Becoming a digital company is a challenge. The path to successful transformation is not straight nor easy to navigate. Much effort goes into deliberately synchronizing people, processes, and technology.

For a deeper dive into digital transformation, please look at part one of our blog, Why Digital Transformation is Important to Sustained Success. 

Digitization can lead to digitalization which can lead to digital transformation. Only companies going through the process of digitalization can choose to become digital. While digitizing and digitalization are about leveraging technology, digital transformation is a revolution that changes the design of the business. While none of these are sufficient to guarantee the next level, any step forward is an investment in your company’s future well-being.

The transformational aspect empowers entire organizations and delivers new service levels to your clients.

IronOrbit enables organizations to modernize their information infrastructure, link workflows, and scale productivity. More than a technology service provider, IronOrbit can help you understand where your infrastructure is today and where you want it to be tomorrow.

Focus on targeted objectives and tap into the power of cloud-based transformations.

Wherever you are on your digital transformation journey, IronOrbit can help. The most important thing you can do for your company is to take the initiative to advance the infrastructure of your business. What change could you make today to help streamline operations and become more resilient?

Sometimes it helps to have a knowledgeable sounding board on your side. Whether your business still has an on-premises server or has already moved to the cloud, we can help you identify valuable opportunities for future innovation and growth.

How to Adopt New Technologies
Understand How Technology Can Grow & Protect Your Company Then Take Incremental Steps to Meet Prioritized Objectives.

New technology can benefit companies in all industries. Reading about the possibilities is exciting. Business leaders are eager to get on the bandwagon. Leaders can become impatient when they learn the competition has implemented something like cognitive technologies to solve a problem and gain a significant advantage.

Ultimately, companies recognize that digitizing operations and developing a digital strategy is necessary. The fear is that the longer they wait, the more at risk they put the future of their company. Jumping all in for transformation becomes an irresistible temptation. Too many business leaders want to make fast decisions for fear of missing out. They start the process before they’re ready. Transforming processes before you are ready leads to frustrations and unrealized benefits.

 

Use Managed Services as an Intermediary Step

Part of the challenge for many companies has legacy systems, and they’re not in a position to retire them overnight. Leaders will realize when the next natural progression is to switch to modern applications. Partnering with a forward-leaning technology company like IronOrbit can enable baby steps towards modernizing your operations. This approach affords the time to determine which tools are critical for sustainable growth and which are not.

You build incremental confidence in the technology, while IronOrbit can make recommendations based on your immediate, mid-range, and long-term strategy. And it’s okay if there is no long-term strategy other than fortifying and growing your business. IronOrbit, as your managed service provider, can help supply the missing pieces of the puzzle. You will begin to approach digital more like the business decision it is. An incremental approach enables digitization and adoption of new technologies when it makes sense. Digital and business strategies must align and integrate throughout the organization.

Corporations have silos of group activity. They’ve been that way for over a century. Anything to do with IT would be the purview of a secluded department or an enclave of tech-focused professionals. When you talk about digital transformation or adopting new technologies, you’re talking about a change of one kind or another. Certain company cultures can adapt more quickly than others. Still, change can be complicated. As your Smart Managed Service Provider, IronOrbit helps to simplify the process and make it substantially more manageable.

Begin with the End in Mind

A digital transformation can mean different things to different people. It might mean software to increase operational efficiencies for one, or develop an omnichannel retail strategy for new product offerings for another. Start by clarifying why undertake the transformation and what business opportunities will arise from the changes. The more you know about what challenges you want technology to solve, the easier it will be to build the proper foundation.

In Conclusion

Adopting new technologies should be seen as a marathon and not a sprint. Take the time to understand which technologies perform what kinds of tasks. Identify a prioritized portfolio of projects based on business needs. The close collaboration of in-house technology leaders and C-level executives will become increasingly crucial as acceleration (technology and change) continues. CIOs and CTOs have the expertise to help navigate a straightforward integration of digital and business strategies.

IronOrbit ensures you’ll have a map to successfully evaluate and integrate new technology while balancing the upgrade and management of existing systems.

How Cloud Computing Can Lower Your IT Costs

Hosting your IT solutions, including your desktops and applications, with an IT hosting provider or cloud computing provider is almost always more cost-efficient than hosting or installing these solutions “locally,” or hosting them on your own physical servers or installing them directly on users’ PCs.

Some of the main reasons that cloud computing is more cost-efficient than local IT include:

Multitenancy

Because of the multitenant architecture of the cloud, hosting providers can host solutions for several different customers on the same physical server.

This both minimizes the hosting provider’s hardware costs (savings that the provider can then pass on to its customers) and allows the customer to pay for just the portion of the physical server that it uses, not the whole physical server.

If you host an IT solution locally, in contrast, you’re always going to have to purchase full physical servers (which can cost $1,000+), even if you only need to use a portion of the server.

Advanced security, DLP, and downtime prevention

Security breaches, data loss incidents, and downtime can be extremely costly. They can result in financial losses in the millions due to lawsuits, fines, lost customers, lost sales, and lost productivity.

IT hosting companies are generally better than in-house IT departments at preventing these types of IT disasters. They can afford to employ advanced security, data loss prevention, and disaster recovery measures that in-house IT departments cannot. Such features include offsite data backups, N+1 redundancy, RAID storage arrays, next-generation firewalls, and 24x7x365 monitoring.

Higher operational efficiency

Hosting providers can manage the hosted solutions of thousands of businesses at once with a relatively small number of administrators. This is due to the fact that the management of IT solutions is mostly automated. It doesn’t require a lot of direct human oversight or interaction.

Thin client and BYOD compatibility

Hosted IT solutions can be accessed from anywhere with any Internet-connected device. These include low-cost devices such as thin clients, budget PCs, and older, ready-to-be-replaced PC workstations.

In addition, users can access their hosted solutions from personal devices that they bring with them to the office.

If you allow your employees to use their personal devices at work to access their hosted solutions (which is called having a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy), you can potentially reduce your end-user hardware costs to $0, without decreasing the manageability or security of your IT.

More Reasons Cloud Computing Is Cost-Efficient: Specialization and Economies of Scale

As we explained in the article, “How Cloud Computing Can Lower Your IT Costs”, four of the main reasons that IT hosting is more cost-efficient than onsite or local IT are:

  • Multitenancy
  • Advanced security, DLP, and downtime prevention
  • Higher operational efficiency
  • Thin client and BYOD compatibility

More advantages of Cloud Computing

In today’s post, meanwhile, we’re going to be talking about how the specialization and economies of scale of hosting companies are two additional reasons that IT hosting is more cost-efficient than onsite or local IT.

As we mentioned in the previous article about IT hosting’s cost-efficiency, the multitenant architecture of the cloud allows hosting providers to host solutions for several different customers on the same physical server.

This both minimizes the hosting provider’s hardware costs (savings that the provider can then pass on to its customers) and allows the customer to pay for just the portion of the physical server that it uses, not the whole physical server.

If you host an IT solution locally, though, you’re always going to have to purchase full physical servers, even when your solution utilizes only a portion (25 percent, let’s say) of the physical server’s total resources.

Hosting companies would still be more cost-efficient than in-house IT departments at hosting IT solutions. This is  due to their higher level of specialization and economies of scale. Even if you discounted the ability of hosting companies to host IT solutions for multiple customers on a  single physical server.

Specialization

IT hosting companies are more specialized because all of their efforts and operations are focused on IT hosting. In-house IT departments, in contrast, have to concentrate more generally on managing all aspects of their companies’ IT.

Every decision a hosting provider makes (such as the staff that it hires and the hardware and software it buys) is focused on how it can maximize the performance, security, and reliability of its hosted solutions, while minimizing its overall costs.

Economies of Scale

economies of scale

In most cases, IT hosting companies can get discount bulk rates on IT hosting hardware and software. This includes servers, networking equipment, operating system licenses, and virtual machine licenses. As well as on resources like Internet bandwidth and electrical power, which in-house IT departments cannot.

In addition, IT hosting companies are more efficient because they have the capability to perform the following:

  • Buy the latest-and-greatest IT hosting software
  • Hire experienced IT hosting specialists
  • Purchase or rent large data centers that have expensive climate control systems
  • Fire suppression systems
  • And physical security measures (including biometric access panels, servers cages, and 24x7x365 onsite security guards)

Hosting companies can also offer affordable hosted solutions. They can do this since the costs of these assets are all shared amongst the IT hosting company’s clients.

Most businesses would never be able to afford to purchase these assets by themselves for their own in-house IT department. But with IT hosting, the client’s share of the costs of all of these assets ends up being a small amount per user. Let’s say $5-$10 per user per month. In my opinion, that’s a great deal with all the advantages and benefits that go with the subscription.
