| Matt Unangst, director of commercial client business at AMD discusses four ways that the right PC or laptop platform can tackle the most pressing challenges of remote working.
With the pandemic still with us, remote working has become the default. But do today’s businesses have the right tools and hardware to accommodate this seismic shift without cutting into worker productivity?
With most organisations’ remote working plans not fully operational before COVID-19, many discovered that the infrastructure put in place to support remote workers was not on a level with the infrastructure catering to in-office employees. Findings from IDC research revealed that:
· Over half of respondents had difficulty communicating or collaborating with internal colleagues
· 43% had trouble communicating or collaborating with external stakeholders
· Almost 40% had limited effective remote access
Boost worker productivity
Battery life is another critical element for promoting productivity when working from home or on the go. “By not having to plug in all the time, you have the flexibility to do what you need, where you need it, when you need to do it,” says Matt Unangst, Director of Commercial Client Business at AMD. “That translates into productivity gains because you get things done no matter what the environment is.”
Enable team collaboration
Graphics capabilities are also key. Matt Unangst, Director of Commercial Client Business at AMD says, “Premium graphics are more important to employees now that everyone is working remotely with colleagues and including more visual mediums as part of the content they are sharing.”
Protection for enterprise information
The likes of AMD PRO security include a multi-layered approach to security that includes silicon and firmware-level security features in addition to AMD Memory Guard, which uses system memory encryption to help reduce the threat of physical memory attacks even if the laptop is left in standby mode.
Lift the remote management burden
In this unprecedented era of change, businesses need a whole new level of flexibility and performance from PCs and laptops. Systems that offer AMD Ryzen PRO 4000 series processors strike the right balance between increasing worker productivity and easing the burden on IT personnel, all while keeping security features top of mind.
