Free your desktop apps & build a client virtualization & mobility strategy - in just one day

Author:  Jordan Whitmarsh, Worldwide Mobility Lead – TS Network Consulting

The influx of mobile devices coupled with the ever changing user demands of today’s workforce, means organizations are confronted with providing universal access to people, applications and data. Enterprise IT is competing with consumer services that are more flexible, easier to obtain and often free – challenging IT’s role as the sole provider of IT services and raising questions of relevance.

During the past 20 years organizations have invested in the powerful Windows desktop platform to provide client services. Applications that run on this platform are core to the success of any business and despite the rapidly changing device landscape there is little appetite to throw them away and start from scratch on mobile platforms.

By virtualizing desktop and application workloads in the datacenter they become device agnostic and available anywhere, any time without the need for complex and costly reengineering of the applications estate. Deploying client virtualization as part of a holistic mobility strategy allows an organization to bridge the gap between classic desktop services and the ultra-mobile devices that are dominating the hearts and minds of users. Mobility is as much about the experience and the applications being mobile between devices as it is about the devices themselves. Client virtualization allows the productivity currently tied to the desktop estate to be unlocked and the existing investment in client applications to be leveraged in the mobile world.

To help guide our customers along this journey HP has announced new, compelling ways to help them understand how to respond to these new challenges and embrace the transformational opportunities that mobility and client virtualization provide. Whether the enterprise is already engaging in projects related to mobility, or just at the beginning of the journey, HP experts can facilitate an interactive, focused conversation aligning the key stakeholders from the business and from IT, delivering real results in just one day.

The HP Mobility Transformation Experience Workshop (TEW) is a full-day workshop which redefines the way organizations build their mobility transformation vision. This concentrated session uses a proven methodology to guide your organization in identifying its challenges, bottlenecks and aspirations, delivering a prioritized mobility roadmap owned and agreed by the individuals taking part. This roadmap sets a firm foundation on which to build a strategic approach to mobility, with HP as a trusted partner.

 As you know the devil is often in the details, and so our customers are asking HP to share our expertise and thought leadership to help them navigate the subject. The TEW aligns multiple IT domains driving towards a unified enterprise mobility outcome. It brings together specialists that currently focus on applications, desktops, servers, storage, networking, mobile devices and unified communications services, and it focuses them on a new vision that ultimately aligns with and enables the business.

Using immersive, kinesthetic interaction techniques and life-sized panels to convey and collect information, the TEW is a slide-free experience that focuses on four key transformational areas: Enabling Communities, Unlocking Productivity, Accelerating Productivity and Delivering Connectivity.

The HP Transformation Experience Workshop allows businesses to tie “random acts of mobility” into a cohesive vision and strategy with actionable next steps, including both quick wins and longer term ambitions.
