Deliver a Temporary Work Environment using Intel vPro Technology

first_imgWhen a hard drive fails or the reimaging process will provide too much disruption to a worker’s day, having the ability to deliver a temporary work environment is often desired.   Today this is commonly done by issuing a temporary PC to the user.   Using Intel vPro Technology, Altiris Client Management Suite, and a bootable ISO image – a temporary work environment could be loaded into the memory of the target PC.The following image provide an overview of what is shown in this video demonstration.   Delivery of the temporary work environment occurs within minutes without requiring the user to move to a different PC. The downtime impact to the end-user is minimized, while still providing them with the processing power of a full client system.   Connectivity to network based applications and data enables the user to function, while further actions can be taken to repair the harddrive or related items.How could you utilize this capability within your own environment?   I’m interest to hear about itlast_img

Why Facebook For Work Will Be A Hard Sell To Employers

Facebook thinks that’s no fair. Now, the social network is building “Facebook at Work,” a version of its site for the workplace.According to the Financial Times, the site will look like Facebook proper, but allow employees to keep their work life separate. Users will be able to chat with coworkers, collaborate on projects, and build catalogues of colleague’s contacts, with each of these services directly competing with Microsoft’s Yammer, Google’s Drive, and LinkedIn. A work-friendly Facebook makes sense for the social network so that it can grasp even more of users’ time. CEO Mark Zuckerberg noted in July that American users spend an average of 40 minutes per day on the site. This could be compounded during work hours.However, Facebook has several hurdles ahead of convincing companies to unblock a new work-friendly version of Facebook. First, there’s employers’ beliefs that Facebook is a waste of time. A 2009 survey found that more than half of employers had Facebook blocked. There’s also Facebook’s dismal privacy record. Will companies really want their employees storing sensitive work information in the same cloud that ignores “do not track” browser settings?See also: Facebook Is Going To Start Tracking You Even More CloselyFinally, and most damningly, is the fact that all the services Facebook at Work will offer already exist. Slack, Google Drive, and LinkedIn already do these features well, and have the market for these respective services cornered. If Facebook at Work is going to have a chance of competing, it’ll need to extremely improve on its competitors’ services. And from the little we’ve seen of the service (with Facebook declining to comment), it’s hard to tell if Facebook for Work even has a chance. Screengrab by Facebooklast_img
