There is something to be said when you can walk into a restaurant and order à la carte. Personally I love steakhouses for this reason… sometimes I want a nice ribeye steak with mac and cheese while other times I want it with asparagus. On the flip side, nothing frustrates a chef more than a substitution or modification to THEIR dish. À la carte is that middle ground… customer gets what they want while the chef can still masterfully create wonderful dishes compiling all the best ingredients to delight your taste buds. Today, we’re very proud to announce the availability of RES ONE Workspace 2016.
RES ONE Workspace 2016 is the most flexible version of the product to date. It allows IT to license the workspace capabilities they need today, starting from any module across Composition, Security, and even Automation. This flexibility offers customers the ability to easily grow into more advanced workspace and automation capabilities as their digital workspace strategy matures.
Today, IT can choose where to start based on the module(s) that maps to the top business priorities and grow as their digital workspace strategies expand. Let’s walk through the modules:
- Composition (formerly Dynamic Configuration) – provides workspace management capabilities to help unify the workspace experience for the workforce
- Security (formerly Adaptive Security) – effectively protects against internal and external threats by locking down the endpoint
- Governance (formerly Delegation and Compliance) – uses delegation and compliance to gain control and insight about the deployed workspace
- Desktop Automation – lowers the cost of IT operations and enables better allocation of IT staff and
Another exciting thing about this release is that the licensing flexibility opens up the possibility for other RES offerings. The first is RES ONE Workspace Core, a freemium version of RES ONE Workspace that helps people build a foundation for their digital workspace. Core is a great way for people to get comfortable with RES with a set of capabilities that go beyond some of the built-in offerings from major platform vendors. They can use Core to manage their physical, virtual and hybrid environments and then expand to more advanced versions if their environment grows in complexity.
This Module Comparison Chart will provide a detailed overview of the different features included within each module and in Core.
The second offering made possible by RES ONE Workspace 2016 is RES ONE Security. RES ONE Security protects businesses from external and internal threats with a unique people-centric approach to managing security, governance, and identity and access management. You probably guessed it, but the security and governance modules that are part of RES ONE Security come from the latest version of RES ONE Workspace and the flexibility of being able to select the modules that are going to address your top challenges.
RES ONE Workspace allows the workforce to work from anywhere, anytime, forcing IT to support multiple devices and flexible access to the data, apps and networks, without losing sight of security. RES ONE Workspace also drives productivity for the workforce, providing workers with a familiar and seamless workspace that is both secure and dynamic based on their changing contexts. It balances security with flexibility, and makes it possible for IT to deliver on business demands by simplifying the management of digital workspaces across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
RES ONE Workspace 2016 allows customers to pick and choose the modules they want giving the flexibility needed to make their digital workspace truly à la carte.
