The digital workplace is designed to empower employees, reduce total cost of ownership, and improve security. This increasing reliability, value, flexibility, and agility to the University. FIS Technical Services has invested in bringing about the digital workplace to the University through embracing cloud, mobility, and virtualization. Over the past year, Technical Services has undertaken the following initiatives to bring us closer to the digital workplace:
- VMWare Horizon View: FIS implemented Horizon View hosted virtual desktops as a replacement to the traditional desktop for more than 100 computers. Horizon View extends the replacement life cycle of the desktop. It also enables access to the desktop from almost any endpoint, including mobile hardware and the web, while securely running the desktop from the University Data Center. Finally, it enables flexibility to adjust resources to each desktop on-demand which will decrease downtime.
- SharePoint Online and Office 365: FIS Technical Services started the process to migrate from our SharePoint 2010 on-premise sites to the University Enterprise SharePoint Online service with One Drive for Business hosted by Microsoft. FIS has worked to provide guidance, governance, and a data migration plan for this cloud offering. By using hosted cloud-based services, staff will have increased storage, enables access to their content from almost any endpoint including mobile and web, and reduced IT management.
