Burnaby’s Teradici has released a new report entitled The Separation of Work and Place, which highlights lessons learned from organizations navigating a new normal, amid the pandemic.
Teradici set out in 2004 to create the best virtual desktop and workstation experience in the world. Earlier this year they were honored by the Television Academy with an Engineering Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development for doing just that.
The new report, which gathered insights from nearly 700 IT respondents, reveals that companies forced to quickly shift employees to a remote work setting were not fully prepared to make the move.
Two-thirds of respondents shared they would change the way they shift employees to work remotely if faced with a similar or like event. IT respondents also shared what they’ve learned since the pandemic amid new concerns ranging from security to managing dispersed teams for an extended period of time.
“Companies across key industries have struggled with the increasing number of IT and remote work hurdles brought on by COVID-19. Challenges ranged from procuring new hardware, to VPN set up, to assessing work-from-home policies– all while ensuring security and productivity didn’t take a back seat,” said Ziad Lammam, VP of product at Teradici.
“Conversely, we also saw several companies take advantage of centralizing their workstations in a data center or public cloud, providing them many benefits, including greater operational and cost efficiencies, improved flexibility and superior talent acquisition, now from any location.”
Notably, the report found that organizations plan to increase IT spending by well over 100% to support remote teams. IT leader respondents view remote work as the new normal for the foreseeable future and are therefore willing to shift budgets and/or prioritize initiatives that support remote work needs.
