Dimension Data takes aim at end-user computing
Solutions provider launches new consultative tool for end-user computing
Dimension Data this week launched a new consultative tool designed to help organisations learn more about end-user computing, and how it impacts their ICT operations.
Dubbed the End-User Computing Development Model (EUCDM), the tool is supposed to help organisations make the transition to ‘end-user-computing'. Dimension Data described this as the integrated management and secure delivery of application services to any user endpoint.
The solutions provider claimed that end-user computing could be set to fundamentally change the way that employees work.
"Gone are the days when end-user computing was about managing a laptop or desktop. In today's fast-paced workplace where employees are using two, three and even four computing devices with different capabilities, models, shapes, sizes, operating systems, and security models, organisations are coming under pressure to change their approach to end-user computing," said Nadeem Ahmad, Dimension Data's global technology director.
"While the emergence of end-user computing in organisations is in the early stages of adoption, we're seeing a shift in the enterprise from desktop computing to users demanding access to applications and data from any location and on any device. This is how enterprise employees want to work, and its set to fundamentally change the way employees work."
Ahmad said that Dimension Data had invested hundreds of hours into developing its EUCDM tool, which he claimed would help organisations understand their current end-user computing maturity. He added that it would also help them to indentify their future needs, and work out the gap between the two, providing a viable solution roadmap.
"The true value of end-user computing lies in applying it in an innovative way to achieve specific personal and business outcomes," he said.
