As an extension of professional habits resulting from the covid-19 health crisis, hybrid work is gradually becoming a lasting reality. An evolution that gives rise to technological innovations that are better adapted, beneficial both to employees and to their company.
Is teleworking already becoming the norm? The question seems legitimate after reading certain studies. A survey carried out by the Boston Consulting Group alongside the ANDRH (National Association of Human Resources Managers) indicates that for 46% of respondents teleworking up to 2 days a week will be commonplace from 2025. A strong trend that is also confirms on the side of the employees. These are 41%, all sectors combined, to consider that remote or home working will be the norm in the future or will at least be the subject of a face-to-face / distance mix, according to a study conducted by the Handelsblatt Research Institute on behalf of TeamViewer, provider of remote assistance and remote control technology solutions.
This fundamental transformation is even considered inevitable in certain areas of activity. 87% of employees in financial services share this view. In IT services and telecommunications, this rate reaches 76%. It is also the majority in the media, marketing, advertising and real estate, with 58%.
The economic configuration of France, very oriented towards services, is one of the major reasons for these high rates. Daily work consists entirely or partially of an office job for approximately 40% of French people. But in the construction sector as in the manufacturing industry, the figures are not negligible either: the positions remain compatible with telework respectively 63% and 48% of the cases, in these two fields.
A smooth technological transition
If a sustainable evolution towards hybrid work seems widely envisaged, it is still necessary that technological tools show themselves to be proactive in order to meet the needs of these new patterns of professional life. With Windows 11 Professional, Microsoft is adapting its innovations to these challenges. Combined with the Intel vPro® platform, its goal is to deliver the best possible tools with enhanced security responding to various cyber threats, software features designed for efficient and qualitative remote collaborations, as well as a system environment capable of simply switching from one task to another. And since needs and scaling speeds differ from organization to organization, special emphasis has been placed on the agility of device deployment and management.
The new version of the Windows Autopilot solution offered by Microsoft allows contactless deployment, without the need to physically install a 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 additional intervention from the DSI is necessary. Users only need to authenticate and all profile features are installed automatically.
Each computer can then 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 repaired, restarted, or even completely reset by this means.
It should be noted that Windows 10 and 11 systems are very similar in terms of operating philosophy, ensuring continuity in terms of familiarity with the environments and evolution from one platform to another, which largely explains the degree high adoption. A sign of the natural extension existing between the two versions: 99.7% of applications under Windows 10 remain functional under Windows 11. Organizations can thus freely proceed with a migration in waves, starting with a few positions, with a particular department or even by top management, according to priorities.
