End-user computing has become one of the key focus areas of the digital workplace. The main reason for this transformation is modern work practices and consumerization of IT.
What is EUC?
End-user computing is an approach wherein a non-programmer creates a working application which aims in better integration of end-users into a computing environment. The implementation of EUC gives access to the applications remotely at desire time and device.
Traditionally EUC is developed to help the end-users in their work with the use of application and computer system by the developers. End-user controls package application & hardware are purchased for the user’s department.
End-user development provides a set of tools to the users such that they can customize & create applications that can be used for work or even as a product.
Though VDI is said to be the first step to a true End-User Computing environment, virtual desktop & its system is slow in delivering solutions.
EUC that identifies all the key applications or database that are critical for daily operations and the skill set required to maintain activities are low. There are some core services of EUC that provide the right support.
A EUC environment is the first step towards a hybrid multi-cloud experience that can support the diversity with breaking organizational standards of operation. EUC delivers a centralized platform for all user desktop and applications.
EUC solution offers an opportunity to deliver improved consistency in the desktop and access to user application in remote offices.
Next-Gen of EUC
EUC is the digital-first business spurring the evolution of unified workspaces through different technologies and servers and provides a high viewpoint in the digital business journey. The evolution of EUC is continuously growing, and the future of EUC will be hybrid, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and DaaS.
What is DaaS?
DaaS is the promise of cloud, agility and utility, and it can leverage the diversity of platforms in your operations without scaling end-point management challenges. DaaS makes future of EUC a reality.
DaaS is one the cloud computing-based service model that intersect the three traditional services of SaaS (software as a Service) PaaS (Platform as Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and gives value to all its cross functions.
Experts have stated that in the coming future, DaaS would be transforming most of on-premise VPI users from traditional workspace to cloud and the organizations will look to transform to a digital workspace with IT Team supporting the end-user needs.
Benefits of DaaS adoption
Future of EUC
End-User Computing (EUC) strategies that had only focused on device and internal cost optimization activities will be replaced and use workspace analytics will be adopted to predict end-user needs and deliver a better experience. EUC will be much more flexible and unified with condition access policy that enables to have control on how authorized users can access cloud apps.
Even Google and Microsoft are partnering with End-user Computing firms to create a solution that can turn on remote applications on any devices and widely improving user experience and making it easier for IT departments.
Data will be centralized and to be more secured than ever before. IT departments can manage workspace anywhere from one point, and the End-user device is optimized for faster and easier to use.
