End User Computing (EUC)
Traditional IT has always been driven by the business and controlled by the IT Department. End User Computing turns the organisational chart on its head, empowering the end user and their requirements. EUC focuses upon the following:
- What does the end user require;
- How should it be delivered to the end user;
- How to allow the user customisation
- How to maintain security, whilst enabling end user freedom.
End User Computing can be split into five building blocks; Platform, Application, Profile, Data and Endpoint. By maintaining these high cohesive building blocks, any end user requirements can be easily achieved from a source of libraries. Whether it be Managed Desktops or VDI (for the platform delivery), Application Streaming or Application Delivery for the Applications or uLogon for Profile virtualisation; Ultima can deliver a complete end-to-end solution that empowers the user, whilst ensuring security is maintained. Ultima’s UDOM strategy enables you to discover the power of EUC and facilitate the migration to such an environment.
Consumerisation & Bring Your Own (BYO)
More IT departments are faced with the challenges empowering the user, whilst maintaining security of the infrastructure. Integrating smart devices is becoming more common, some of which are not company owned devices, increasing the challenges for the IT teams' security and data protection. Many people now find that their home-based IT equipment and services are both more capable and less expensive than that provided in their workplace and it's saving companies time and money. The so-called "consumer" products are evolving into reliable yet inexpensive tools, which IT can leverage.
Consumerisation is the notion of enabling users to utilise their own equipment for business purposes, for example; receiving corporate email on personal smartphones. Ultima provides access to products and solutions that allow secure and reliable usage of such devices, without compromising the integrity of the corporate systems.
Securing the Endpoint
Enabling your environment to support BYO is simple; securing such devices can be more challenging. Ultima has partnered with the leading security vendors: Microsoft, Good Technology, Symantec and Check Point; to ensure data security and integrity is maintained when delivered to unmanaged devices. Utilising these technologies, you can ensure that access and data remains secure whether it be a Windows, IOS, Android or any other device.
