I am really excited that Expedient is launching our latest product today, Expedient Enterprise Workspace (EEW). Why am I excited? Well, I’m glad you asked! There are three key reasons.
- EEW enables companies to Work Different
- EEW and Expedient Enterprise Cloud are liked Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup: both great by themselves but when consumed together, they just hit the spot.
- EEW demonstrates our new way of innovating here at Expedient.
Over the next week or two, I will share with you more details on all of these, but today I wanted to start with #1, how EEW enables companies to Work Different.
When we talk about Work Different, we are really focusing on three key areas.
In his article New Ways of Working in the Company of the Future, Peter Tomson says “In the age of ‘smart’ working an individual is in control of their own time. They decide when and where to work and are trusted to do so by their boss. There is no assumption that work can only be done in the usual daytime shift at the usual workplace.”
EEW is a perfect solution to help you or your employees work when and where you want while still having access to everything you need. Accessible via web browser or app on a computer, tablet or phone, it truly enables people to work smarter.
But remote work comes with potential complexities regarding performance, connectivity and latency. EEW is designed with customer experience in mind. It has the latest generation top-of-the-line Intel processors, additional RAM, and solid state drives architected in for maximum performance. And it leverages a powerful performance analytics engine so should a user experience a slowdown, it is extremely easy to determine exactly where the bottleneck might be.
Security is a major concern in a remote world. Leveraging a solution like EEW allows you to bring the security of an enterprise grade desktop solution to any device. With our entire Security CTRL suite built-in, we keep everything safe and secure. Virus somehow sneak past all of the layers of built-in security? Close out the desktop and start it back up with a clean image from scratch in seconds.
And what about when you have an oopsie around the office? Say the cat walks across your desk and dumps your coffee on your computer, ruining it forever? All your data is in the cloud and you are back up and running on your personal iPad in seconds until you can get the new computer to arrive.
For an end-user, the difference between EEW and your Windows experience on your laptop is negligible, as EEW is a full Windows Desktop Client. But where it really simplifies work is for your IT staff. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is historically one of the hardest challenges infrastructure teams face. It takes a pretty robust set of infrastructure, not to mention usually at least two full-time engineers to properly run even the smallest implementation. And inevitably, you are going to have to compromise somewhere, whether it be CPU, RAM, Disk, or somewhere else because of the capital investment. With EEW, we remove all that burden while letting your team focus on what they care about most, what the users see on their desktops. EEW truly is VDI without Compromise.
At Expedient, we believe that our people are our most valuable asset and a key differentiator for our organization. We know many of you feel the same way about your people. Now is the time for us as organizations to invest in our people and help them navigate this new way of working to an approach that is better for us as companies AND better for them as individuals. If you’d like to talk more about how we can help you and your teams Work Different with Expedient Enterprise Workspace, let’s talk.
