Five ways to keep employees engaged and productive - How to provide the right technology so employees can work where, when and how they want to help you grow your business

Your business will never possess a more powerful competitive advantage than your employees. Are you making the right choices to take full advantage of that value - or even to hang on to it? Just 13% of global workers are highly engaged and highly satisfied with their workplace. Of those who are highly engaged, 88% have a greater degree of control over where and when they work - they can find private spaces to work in when they need to concentrate, work with teams easily and make their own choices about the way they want to work. 1 One important way to help your own employees stay engaged, satisfied and productive - and creating their best work - is through the right technology. Your employees are used to consumer technology that works without hiccups. If they have an issue, they just download a different app. But at work, your employees need to communicate and collaborate easily and seamlessly, all with the same toolset, whether they're in the office or working remotely - and they need devices that are designed to maximise the benefits of their technology toolsets. Otherwise, they may face unsynced or inaccessible files, siloed data or applications that don't work as well on mobile devices. Technology woes like these don't just frustrate employees; they impede their ability to collaborate, share opinions and ideas, and perform highquality work. According to recent research, when asked about the specific impact of 16 common collaboration tools, most workers surveyed cited only two - email and instant messaging - as helping them to be more effective at their jobs. 2 This may be why many employees take technology into their own hands: at least 1 in 4 seek out their own mobile and cloudbased apps. But when your employees use unsanctioned tools, it makes it nearly impossible to safeguard your business's data. In this e-book, we'll look more closely at how you can address the problems your employees may be facing with their daily technology, and how you can equip them to do their best work while keeping your data and information secure.

From end of support to Azure—A migration path

With end of support for Windows Server 2008 in the near future, cloud adoption provides considerable value over other alternatives, offering greater scalability, cost efficiency, control over security risks, and improved performance. Specifically, Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will reach end of support on January 14, 2020. As such, Microsoft Azure now includes three more years of security updates for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 at no additional charge. Organizations are looking to quickly take advantage of this value by migrating their existing applications and workloads. To enable successful migration, it's important to have a strong plan in place that covers the end-cloud environment, training, and, most importantly, the readiness of your workloads and applications. If you're an IT manager running onpremises applications and servers, this e-book is designed to help you start a migration to the cloud.
