As an extension of professional practices resulting from the covid-19 health crisis, hybrid work is gradually becoming a lasting reality. An evolution that brings innovative technologies that are better adapted, beneficial both to employees and their company.
Is teleworking becoming commonplace? The question seems legitimate after reading some studies. A survey conducted by Boston Consulting Group in conjunction with ANDRH (National Association of Human Resources Managers) indicates that for 46% of respondents teleworking up to 2 days a week will be common from 2025. A strong trend that proves also on the side of the employees. These are 41%, all sectors combined, to consider that distance or working at home will be common in the future or at least be the subject of a face/distance mix, according to a study that conducted by the Handelsblatt Research Institute on behalf of TeamViewer, provider of remote assistance and remote control technology solutions.
This major change is considered inevitable in some areas of activity. 87% of employees in financial services share this view. In IT and telecommunications services, this rate reached 76%. It is also the majority in media, marketing, advertising and real estate, with 58%.
The restructuring of France’s economy, which is focused on services, is one of the main reasons for these high rates. Day-to-day work consists entirely or partly of an office job for nearly 40% of French. But in the construction sector as in the manufacturing industry, the numbers are also negligible: positions remain compatible with telework respectively 63% and 48% of cases, in these two fields.
A smooth technological transition
If a sustainable evolution towards hybrid work seems widely thought, it is still necessary that technological tools present themselves as proactive to meet the demands of new patterns of professional life. With Windows 11 Professional, Microsoft has adapted its innovations to these challenges. Along with the Intel vPro® platform, its goal is to deliver the best possible tools with enhanced security that respond to a variety of cyber threats, software features designed for efficient and effective remote collaboration, as well as the system environment capable of switching from one task to another. And because the needs and speed of scaling vary in each organization, special emphasis is placed on the agility of device deployment and management.
The new version of the Windows Autopilot solution offered by Microsoft enables contactless deployment, without having to physically install Master on a device. All you have to do is enroll the machine in question in the solution and associate it with the corresponding department (finance, sales, marketing, etc.). No further DSI intervention is required. Just authenticate users and all profile features will be installed automatically.
Each computer can be fully secured and managed remotely from the cloud. The Intune solution is present to allow a remote connection to any machine in the computer park, for example to launch a diagnosis and intervene if necessary. It can be fixed, restarted, or even completely reset by this method.
It should be noted that Windows 10 and 11 systems are almost identical in terms of operational philosophy, ensuring continuity in terms of familiarity with environments and evolution from one platform to another, which further explains high level of adoption. A sign of the natural extension that exists between the two versions: 99.7% of applications under Windows 10 remain functional under Windows 11. Organizations can freely continue moving in waves, starting with a few position, with a particular department or even above. management, according to priorities.
