Philippine Telegraph and Telephone Corp. said over the weekend it teamed up with US-based IT solutions provider Status Pros to enable companies to work and manage the workforce from anywhere or outside their traditional office amid the global pandemic.
“As a telco and IT company, PT&T is one with the industry in fully embracing this digital transformation of work, and thru VDI [Virtual Desktop Instances] technology, we are able to assist companies in ensuring that technology extends well beyond the confines of a traditional office,” said PT&T president and chief executive James Velasquez.
“But we must emphasize that this is not a pivot to circumvent the realities of the current situation, rather, the pandemic merely accelerated what some are already into: working from anywhere,” he said.
VDI allows users to securely access a company-defined-and-managed virtual computer where all applications and data reside. VDI bolsters the Work from Anywhere and Manage from Anywhere setups and can be extremely cost effective and operationally efficient in recapturing value.
