In the age of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and various other strategies designed to boost user productivity, facilitate mobility and reduce IT costs, delivery of the right applications to the right user can be a challenge for IT departments.
These pains can take the form of the manual time needed to build devices to an organisation’s specification, install the appropriate applications for that end user in line with their work, provide access to the appropriate cloud shares or file shares as well as keeping track of the different applications that are implemented to support the operations of your business. The IT department also has to handle the user frustration “when things aren’t as they were before”.
PAV have a range of tools and services that are designed to transform the agility of an organisation to implement new technology, to manage existing technology and to keep users secure where ever they may access their data. Most importantly we provide a solution that will handle the lifecycle of the infrastructure and applications at the same time to provide continual value to your business.
1: Cater for the modern business environment
A modern IT portfolio can encompass hundreds of software applications (508 on average according to Forbes, and that was 5 years ago), all with different uses, varying levels of complexity, and all with their own licensing models and value to different parts of the business.
The amount of time needed to support, patch and configure these applications across an organisation’s network estate can drain IT’s (and by extension, the wider business’) resources as this portfolio grows.
Reducing the operational overhead of this, minimising software license costs, maximising existing software investments and controlling the proliferation of the software estate are all concerns of today’s businesses.
2: Handle and operationalise applications faster
Gone are the days where IT need to physically refresh every user’s devices in an office, and the business needs to front the costs of downtime and travel or shipping of the device.
The service can deliver big, heavy applications to servers and at the same time enable automated creation of OS images. These will be fully patched, contain the required productivity and security suites installed, and configured with appropriate settings. The same process will deliver the out-the-box setup and configuration of end user workstations, ensuring all applications are installed and configured to work with your systems; ready for users to be online and productive with minimal IT interaction, minimal setup time, and maximum success!
Application packaging services can help identify the packages required for each user which can be used to auto-provision those packages onto the user’s devices.
3: Protect data
Safeguard company data held on devices which aren’t managed by IT, but are still used by employees, partners or contractors to access business data.
4: Create savings
Last but not least, direct cost savings can also be achieved with effective application packaging.
Total cost of ownership can be reduced on the organisation’s software and application requirements through tighter control of device management, application lifecycle management and user provisioning capabilities for Windows 10.
What’s the solution?
PAV’s application packaging & virtualisation services help realise these benefits by streamlining and configuring a business’s expansive software estate into a managed, documented portfolio of deployable packages.
We have the skills and in-house tools to package or virtualise an organisation’s software, enabling the business to benefit from reduced management requirements and operational costs as well seeing potential increases in systems performance as a result.
