  • (1888PressRelease) May 25, 2011 - As the next generation of employees descend upon businesses bringing the likes of iPads, iPhones and Blackberries into the office, SMEs not yet embracing mobile technology for their workforce are starting to acknowledge its multi-layered benefits, now and for the future.

    Leading IT provider Blue Chip, has designed a free of charge 'Secure Virtual Computing Briefing' to give SMEs all the information they need about desktop virtualisation, mobile devices and security, by bringing together technology expertise from Citrix*, Wyse** and RSA*** in a single session for a complete overview of what's really involved.

    Blue Chip sales director, Anthony Green explains why this briefing is a significant starting point for businesses researching mobile technology as a tool for increasing productivity and flexibility: "Our briefing is designed to spare IT managers and business owners the time and confusion of researching the technologies and their application, with the rare opportunity to talk directly with the experts. They will demonstrate how the technology, devices and security all work together, talk about how the application of mobile technology can truly enhance business performance, competitive edge and staff retention, and reveal the reality of bottom line savings and reduced overheads.

    He adds: "We are now of the age where the ability to work from anywhere, any time, on any device is no longer a luxury but the norm. There is an expectation for flexibility in the work place, which has influenced how people approach their working day - regardless of which generation they are from.

    "Flexible working has meant that people are happier to spread their workload over a longer day, whether they are in the office, on the move, or working from home - or a combination of all three, instead of shoe-horning it into regular working hours from a single premise.

    "This means they are not only able to achieve more for your business, they are more inclined to, simply because their working day has a better fit with their out-of-work lives. So when there's a deadline to meet, a new deal to be worked on, or even when the weather prevents the rest of the country from getting to their place of work, there's nothing to stop your business from flexing with the times."

    Notes to Editor:
    *Citrix® XenDesktop from Blue Chip dynamically assembles virtual desktops on-demand, providing users with a new and personalised desktop each time they log in - ensuring performance and productivity never drop.

    **Wyse compliments this, offering Thin Client Computing solutions which act as end-points for users to login and access their applications and information, without requiring the desktop systems to store them. This provides numerous advantages including the ease of which IT departments can manage, update and service desktops from a central location, therefore reducing costs and increasing productivity.

    ***RSA, the security division of EMC offer the solution to maintaining a secure environment. RSA SecurID® two-factor authentication is based on something you know (a password or PIN) and something you have (an authenticator)-providing a much more reliable level of user authentication than reusable passwords. This is the only solution that automatically changes your password every 60 seconds.
