FOR THE NEW AGE OF HYBRID WORK

The world of work has changed, with many employees mixing time at the office with remote working. It’s the biggest structural shift to our professional lives since the 9am-5pm work day was introduced 100 years ago. But the right hybrid work strategy will stretch far beyond deciding who will work where and when.

Employees want to be empowered to work from anywhere. But they also want to feel like they belong to an organisation, with the social connection that comes from being able to share ideas in person. For CIOs and business leaders, hybrid work also presents new security threats that need to be anticipated as they evolve.

REIMAGINING THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR OPERATING SYSTEM

Productivity is no longer defined by the time spent at a desk but by what is achieved. The adoption of a new generation of technology that’s inclusive, accessible and prioritises effective communication, has accelerated faster than ever before.

Microsoft has introduced Windows 11 to address the challenges associated with hybrid working. New features simplify moving between virtual meeting and physical work environments, without sacrificing productivity and collaboration or adding to employee stress and cognitive load. It’s an opportunity to put workers at the heart of modern workplace decisions with technology that allows them to realise their full potential.

With Computacenter, IT leaders will be guided to retire old workplace routines, create new ones, and incorporate Windows 11 into their future-proof modern workplace strategy. The operating system has been designed to create streamlined workflows, strengthen security features, and redesign a user experience that suits this new hybrid model of working.

“Windows 11 puts security, usability and collaboration at the forefront, without impacting the user experience”
Ashley Richardson, Chief Technologist, Workplace, Computacenter

STAY SECURE WHILE ENABLING HYBRID WORKING

Microsoft research indicates three in four IT decision makers feel moving to hybrid working leaves them more vulnerable to security threats. Cloud-based collaboration also places an added emphasis on keeping end data secure. In this rapidly-evolving environment, organisations need an OS they can trust. Windows 11 delivers with world-leading authentication, defence in depth, chip-to-cloud security, and proactive, rather than reactive, security protocols.
“OS migrations can feel daunting but with the right guidance, business leaders can formulate a workplace strategy that creates real value – for their employees and the organisation itself”
Andy Goddard, Head of Service Development,
Workplace, Computacenter
