Futureproof your workforce with VMware's Anywhere Workspace

As we well know, traditional workforces have transformed into hybrid, distributed and digital environment. While Gartner revealed 82 percent of leaders plan to adopt hybrid workforces, the work from home (WFH) culture is giving way to a distributed, work from anywhere (WFA) model. There is no data that supports this is going to change.

Today, technology leaders need to bolster traditional IT and security strategies and adopt advanced solutions that deliver secure, scalable and sustainable experiences to empower productivity, employee engagement and connectivity, no matter the location.

Greg Kelly, VMware BDM at Dicker Data said, “Distributed work requires a modern, integrated approach and a new way of thinking in the challenge to re-invent. As a value-added distributor to over 6,000 resellers we have first-hand insights to the need for leading-edge solutions in today’s modern and ever-evolving workforce. In response and in partnership with leading cloud, networking, digital workspace and security vendor VMware, Dicker Data is offering resellers the ’Anywhere Workspace’. This integrated workforce solution builds trust for partners and their customer’s distributed workforce to empower WFA business with frictionless IT experience, cutting-edge security, reduced silos and reduction in operational overhead.”

Our Dicker Data VMware experts work as trusted technology advisors with partners to deploy future-proof software solutions tailored to the WFA model in distributed organisations. The Anywhere Workspace solution enables partners to deliver a cohesive, pre-integrated infrastructure that extends security beyond the office network, reduces overhead costs and ensures connectivity, visibility and context, while providing employees with seamless experiences, accessibility and flexibility.
