Challenges in achieving sustainability
In today’s world, executives face an unprecedented challenge of social, environmental, technological, and market trends that require sophisticated and sustainability-based management. Here are some of the challenges that enterprises mostly face:
Sustainability is expensive - myth or truth?
Business enterprises with limited budgets believe in the myth that implementing sustainability is expensive in the digital workplace.
Lack of security and agility
Rapid technological advancements make it difficult for organizations to keep pace with agile initiatives and offer a secure work environment for their users.
Lack of standardization
Due to a dearth of universally accepted standards, it isn't easy to evaluate the sustainability initiative of different organizations, track employees’ progress, and identify areas for improvement.

How Accops can help you achieve sustainability
Endpoint computing virtualization
Make endpoints dumb terminal and thus irrelevant in your overall enterprise security framework by adopting VDI or DaaS solutions. No need to upgrade or change devices frequently. Control every device, apps & OS in your network to prevent security breach, by virtualizing & delivering desktop apps from the centralized datacenter or cloud. Shut down VMs when not in use, like at night or on weekends, as well as use shared VMs if possible, to reduce energy consumption.
Thin client or zero client
Adopt energy-efficient, cost-effective endpoint devices to replace legacy PC-based computing with centralized, web-based computing. The server-based computing reduces the application, data & endpoint management costs. With a lifespan of 7-12 years, they are highly rugged in nature, which significantly reduces the hardware replenishment cycle. They are perfectly suitable for harsh environments like warehouse floors, points of sale, shop floors, etc.
Secure BYOD with Nano OS
Allow employees, consultants, and vendors to use devices of their choice without compromising security or hindering workflow. A consumer-grade USB 3.0 drive enables secure and instant access to business applications and virtual desktop infrastructure for remote users with personal devices. Thus, reducing the number of devices per user as well as e-waste while also optimizing the infrastructure cost.
Secure outsourcing
Allow vendors to access your business applications from their own devices & offices. This means organizations do not need to invest in creating an additional physical workspace or IT infrastructure, eventually reducing the overall carbon footprint.
Work from anywhere
Enable your employees to work from wherever they are, efficiently and securely, indirectly reducing transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions in the environment. Boost economic growth in T-II, T-III cities and reduce an organization’s ecological footprint.
