The Cloud managed Modern Workplace
Creating a modern workplace is one area where businesses can drive company wide transformation. Inspiring employees, engaging customers, optimising operations, and changing the very nature of the company’s products, services, and business models. By bringing Microsoft technology and products together in experiences and solutions, businesses are rethinking how they can unlock value for employees and customers.
The case for the modern workplace
Businesses are facing a continually changing set of employee expectations, a widening skills gap, more diverse and globally distributed teams, and an increasingly complex threat environment. These pressures require businesses to have a responsive, modern workplace to meet their changing business needs. Businesses must now work on providing seamless communication, multi-device experiences, and keeping assets safe with intelligent security. Microsoft offers productivity and collaboration tools that support modern work styles, enable digital transformation, and protect your business assets. As a service.
Creating seamless collaboration
In most businesses work gets done in teams; either ad hoc teams, long-standing teams, and dynamic teams. The most basic team is a group of people coming together to solve a business problem. The focus has shifted away from “me-centric” work to “we-centric” work, where people form teams quickly, solve problems, and are empowered to collaborate, early, often, and by default. With Microsoft technologies, businesses can focus on creating experiences and services to help bring teams together, enable productivity, and help drive digital transformation. Create friction-free collaboration, anywhere with anyone, with consistent sharing that protects sensitive data.
Employees can enjoy a secure, highly reliable capability to exchange ideas in real-time or asynchronously, having the flexibility to establish conversations and collaborate using the solutions that best fits their needs while keeping corporate assets secure.
From mobility to a multi-device experience
Employees do their best work with the devices they love and many now require a multi-device experience. Your employees can enjoy both personal and corporate devices using mobile application management (MAM) and mobile device management (MDM) solutions to help minimize complexity, both on-premises and in the cloud. For example, manage security as a centralized IT service with identity at its core. Businesses can provide employees a single, hybrid, sign-in credential for multi-factor authentication using Azure Active Directory. The credential works across both cloud and on-premises assets and is at the center of the multi-sense experience.
To build upon a mobile device strategy, we are focusing on the user experience. The user experience is no longer bound to a device—it travels with each individual. Businesses need to consider understanding the single user experience and making it span multiple devices.
Using the workplace should be easy, safe and consistent the matter the location the user is working from or the device to be used.
Our workplace model is in any part user centric, while it's secure by design. We use modern technologies in order to secure the Identity, devices, applications and data in such way that it's almost invisible for the user. Most businesses have to deal with the existence of legacy on-premise services (e.g. file and print services) while moving towards a modern workplace. We deliver both legacy file and print services in a modern and secure way, easy to use while being compliant and integrated within the central security center available for any device.
Intelligent security to protect the business
IT has always focused on protecting corporate assets and has kept tight control of our network perimeter. With the shift to an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge, businesses can no longer think in terms of securing the perimeter. Microsoft’s security posture has evolved.
You need to protect identities, apps, data, and devices with comprehensive enterprise security. And the cloud compels businesses to look at security from a user perspective. The Microsoft security services stack gives us the insights to proactively defend against advanced threats, such as malware, phishing, and zero-day attacks. Businesses can rely on the Microsoft security services stack to address business challenges around intelligent security, such as:
No longer think in terms of managing an asset or devices, rather think about using an intelligence system to respond to threats. With Microsoft, you can have a broad sensor net of rich intelligence, signals, and data that can be gathered from multiple Microsoft platforms, which feeds into the Intelligent Security Graph that other Microsoft 365 services can tap into. In terms of preparing for the future, with Microsoft you will use big data analytics and machine learning to achieve true scale while widening sensor aperture to detect anomalous patterns and behaviors. Automation is critical and will focus on enabling more enriched incident data, faster human triage, and automated incident prioritization and classification.
