Businesses across all industries must adapt to the rapidly changing landscape. Companies must be agile while using collaborative teams to encourage innovation. In this second installment of what INFINITY Workspaces allows you to do, we’ll explore a specific case of how INFINITY Workspaces delivered more than expected.
A Tailored Solution for Your Custom Workloads
Although our INFINITY Workspaces are an all-in-one solution, that doesn’t mean that they are not flexible. The INFINITY Workspaces are highly customizable and offer clients tremendous control of their IT environment. The advantage of platform flexibility is that we can help you leverage the benefits of new technologies for your specific industry as they become available.
IronOrbit’s four INFINITY Workspace options deliver a purpose-built environment carefully customized to the specifications of client needs. Having a DaaS tailored to individual use-cases helps achieve operational efficiency objectives.
INFINITY Workspaces Enable Seamless Business Continuity Strategies for Challenging Times
On March 23, 2019, the Governor of Washington announced the state’s first stay-at-home order to curb the spread of COVID-19. Most businesses, like the Truss Company, a leading manufacturer of engineered wood roof and floor trusses, knew they had to send their employees home to work but didn’t know how to go about it. After the initial shock began to wear off, other questions started. How are our employees going to work? How can we continue to serve our customers? What about moving supplies? Can we still drive on the roads? The questions came faster than the answers.
Although the room was in a panic, Mark Gallant, System Administrator, began to smile because he knew they had a ready-made solution to deal with the problem. A few weeks prior, the company unified its CRM and ERP systems within IronOrbit’s private cloud environment. Mark stood up and made the announcement, “We’re in a hosted environment. Tell everyone to get their computers from the office and go home.”
It was that simple. Unifying the organization’s database onto IronOrbit’s cloud environment was the decision that saved the day.
“I can’t express the gratitude I have for IronOrbit’s hosted environment. The benefits to our company have been innumerable,” says Mark Gallant. “You can’t even measure what IronOrbit has enabled our company to achieve. There were many other companies in our industry that were completely decimated for months. A few never recovered.”
Your Simple and Secure Work-from-Home Capacity
Working-from-Home security and functionality are the main drivers for companies to use the INFINITY Workspace DaaS solution. Whether work-from-home is the best strategy for everyone remains an unresolved question. Most companies embrace a hybrid work model where most work happens away from the corporate office. All indications are that this trend will continue. Sales in the global Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) Market will be more than six billion dollars by the end of 2022 and continue onto eighteen billion dollars by 2029.
While some organizations were in an excellent position in 2019 to pivot and transition to WFH, other companies leveraged the tectonic changes within the market and found new opportunities. Retail brands replaced brick-and-mortar stores with online shopping. For restaurants, it was online menus for pick-up or delivery. Hospitals and doctor’s offices relied more on telehealth. Manufacturing businesses began leveraging autonomous systems, machine learning, the intelligent warehouse, and the rest of what Industry 4.0 has to offer.
All of this was made possible through cloud computing (DaaS) solutions that provisioned work-from-home employees with the resources they needed to get the job done.
Helping You Keep Pace with the Market
Internal organizational changes will not keep pace with external volatility without a modern IT infrastructure that aligns with its 2-year, 5-year, and 10-year strategy. The cautionary note here is not to make decisions based on expediency and costs. Instead, align business objectives with the most appropriate technology available. Break down corporate silos and invite your IT Director to the following corporate strategy meeting.
INFINITY Workspaces do more than enable WFH and increase scalability and all the other powerful things that come with DaaS, such as:
- Changing the workplace’s value position
- Leveraging employee capabilities
- Enhancing security
- Benefiting the client experience
INFINITY Workspaces pave the road to a solid IT foundation that is modern and forward-leaning.
Placing your daily workflow on a modern digital platform such as IronOrbit prepares everyone in your organization to learn new skills. They will learn intuitively using the latest technology within the INFINITY Workspace solution. Using the technology will inspire many of them to become more innovative. They’ll find new and better ways to be more effective in their jobs. They might even discover new ways to improve the customer experience, ideas never thought of before.
Modernizing your IT infrastructure with DaaS, specifically, INFINITY Workspaces does more than enable talent to work anywhere. INFINITY:
Just adopting any DaaS solution isn’t going to get your organization to where you want to be. The best approach for CEOs and IT leaders is to take inventory first. Consider where your company is going and what technologies will help you get there. Tailoring INFINITY Workspaces to fit optimizes your IT infrastructure to take full advantage of the best that cloud-enablement has to offer. We have four Levels of the INFINITY Workspace for you to check out. Depending on your use case, one INFINTY Workspace package makes more price and performance sense than another.
We’d be happy to consult with you on the best fit for your organization.
