Healthcare enterprises are under more scrutiny than ever to demonstrate compliance. With more than 5,000 suppliers, this FORTUNE 50 company needed to automate and streamline their vendor risk management program. Learn why they selected Rsam and the results of their successful implementation.
More and more businesses are embracing workplace mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies as a method to reduce costs and stimulate productivity. These initiatives give employees, contractors, and business partners the power to remotely contribute, collaborate, and communicate with team members from familiar devices, anywhere around the world. To implement these strategies effectively however, IT teams must provide access to applications, business systems, collaboration platforms, and development environments without sacrificing end-user experiences, hindering their organization’s security posture, or inducing excessive costs. What many are finding is that traditional methods of desktop and application delivery and on-premises Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) often cannot live up to this task, as they introduce new challenges upon implementation.

Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic
Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI)
enterprises may realize by shifting some or all their management and
operations from on-premises, hosted, and outsourced implementations to
