Pre-configuring and installing software on laptops, desktops, or tablets for mobile teams usually takes time. This is made easier with Microsoft Intune, Windows as a Service, and the Citrix Cloud. The device is centrally registered in the cloud with its ID. The tools, data accesses, and policies intended for the user are assigned to this ID. The user then logs in with their blank device using the ID and gets access to all tools and policies assigned to them. The only thing the mobile worker needs for this is an Internet connection.
To enable team collaboration from the home office or on the road, companies also use solutions from the public cloud. However, when working with business-critical software and personal data, and with strict security and compliance requirements, it is advisable to set up collaboration tools in the private cloud. This does not have to be more expensive; in the range of 500 to 15,000 workstations in particular, the private cloud is more cost-effective as a sourcing model, as the licenses for the tools used can be optimally adapted to the needs of the company. At the same time, additional features such as telephony services can be integrated and data exchange encrypted.
