Enhance Your Windows 10 Experience With User Workspace Management
Windows 10 migration dominated IT bandwidth at the close of 2019 and might still be lingering as we enter Q2 of 2020. But for those who have successfully migrated, the priority now switches to managing the madness of Windows 10. How do you best manage the latest version of Windows and ensure a quality experience for end users?
As more enterprise-level features are added to Windows 10, it’s time to identify solutions to enhance user experience, protect endpoints, and manage various other features in Windows 10. Enter User Workspace Management (UWM) from Ivanti.
In our latest infographic, “5 Ways to Enhance your Windows 10 Experience,” we outline how UWM helps you get the most out of your Windows 10 implementation.
Here are five areas in which to enhance you Windows 10 experience:
99% of the apps used for the enterprise are unable to leverage Windows 10 “Sync your settings” feature. This causes a huge problem when trying to personalize the end user experience.
Ivanti User Workspace Management helps solve this problem by providing total, flexible coverage of all Windows desktop applications allowing personalization for enterprise. AKA, problem solved.
2. Security at the Endpoint
Without a solution like User Workspace Management, managing Windows 10 to secure endpoints will require a significant amount of IT overhead and in-depth customization.
This is especially important when considering 23% of IT professionals surveyed cited mitigating security risks as their top reason for migrating to Windows 10. Mitigating security risks is a crucial benefit of Windows 10, but without UWM, the backend work to do so might be too much for your IT org to handle.
3. Data Storage
Windows 10 and Office 365 integrate with OneDrive better than ever before, giving IT more visibility into files and folders synced to the Microsoft cloud. But this leaves a blind spot for offline files and folders.
Offline files and folders on several machines within an IT environment inhibit true visibility into your org. Ivanti User Workspace Management enhances the new benefits of Windows 10 while providing greater visibility into data storage and a seamless user experience.
4. Migration and Roaming between Windows 7 and 10
At the end of 2019, around 70% of business desktops were still running on Windows 7. According to our survey results, the biggest inhibitors of Windows 10 migration included other IT priorities, time/resources, and application readiness.
Out of the box, Windows 10 doesn’t allow roaming between Windows 7 and 10. Without this capability it is nearly impossible to track devices by license and type between the two. User Workspace Management by Ivanti allows roaming between Windows 7 and 10, so regardless of where you are in your migration or management of Windows 10, user experience won’t suffer.
5. Tracking Adoption
Another problem with many IT environments split between Windows 7 and 10 is tracking which devices are on which software. Ivanti User Workspace Management offers a variety of tools that track device license version, device type, and can produce interactive reports to help you better manage Windows 10 and future updates.
Properly tracking adoption will ensure you can deliver the best experience for each individual end user.
Enhance Your Experience and Avoid Costly Mistakes
Windows 10 contains many great features, but in enterprises of any size where IT wants to control and protect user security and experience, User Workspace Management is essential. UWM can help enhance your Windows 10 experience and help you avoid common problems and costly mistakes within your IT org.
