For their fans, smoothies are their daily portion of health and fitness and even make them happy, because they can be made without specific cooking skills and combine the properties and benefits of their ingredients into a balanced and effective mixture. What are the ingredients of a smooth workspace solution that leads to happy end users, a happy IT department and a happy company alike?
In many organizations, the happiness and fitness or productivity of end users, the IT department and the entire company are rather clouded, since work styles have undergone radical changes. While in the past administrators provisioned the required applications for their users on an in-house server within the company’s own data center, today’s provisioning and sourcing models are increasingly based on web or SaaS applications.
Companies use at least ten and very often many more external SaaS applications, which results in a high degree of complexity for both the users and the IT staff. Users are challenged to memorize various passwords, user IDs and web addresses; the IT staff, on the other hand, must master environments where both personal and business applications are used for business purposes – quite an unhappy situation, since they lack a transparent overview of assets and licenses, which in turn limits their cost control possibilities or makes such control even impossible.
