The Future of Work: Enable Your Remote Workforce with Help from HPE and Microsoft

In 2020, nearly every business—and especially small and midsize businesses (SMBs)—suddenly had to transform the way they worked, rushing to enable a newly remote workforce practically overnight. Now, it’s becoming clear that many employees are going to continue to work from home or other remote locations.



The good news is that, after the initial rush to implement work from home (WFH) solutions, most SMBs now have the bandwidth to take a more deliberate approach to implementing digital transformation that enables secure, productive remote work environments. Many SMBs are rethinking their infrastructure, developing and deploying remote work solutions that support the security standards, capacity requirements, and long-term demands of a mobile workforce. These more permanent solutions will need to be able to grow with the business, minimize downtime to keep remote workers productive, and fit the budget—all without adding to IT complexity.


A new eBook can help SMBs understand their needs and clarify their goals around remote workforce solutions and see how they can be better prepared for the future of work, with the help of HPE and Microsoft. Topics include:

  • Understanding the new expectations of IT infrastructure: SMBs often have limited ability to support a remote workforce, with legacy systems limiting both capacity and flexibility. These SMBs need to figure out how to adopt remote work solutions with minimal disruption and risk. Fortunately, innovations in servers, storage, networking, and operating systems have made it easier than ever for SMBs to adopt enterprise-class solutions built on HPE ProLiant servers and Windows Server 2019.
  • Reinventing the three pillars of a work environment: New infrastructures will need to support a workforce that is increasingly remote and mobile. But in a time when so much is changing, it can be difficult to plan an infrastructure evolution. As SMBs explore new and different technology solutions, they need to keep in mind the three critical pillars of the business: workspace, workflow, and workforce. HPE and Microsoft can help SMBs craft a solution that takes these into consideration.
  • Getting the best of both worlds in a hybrid workplace: Many SMBs are looking at using Hybrid Cloud technology to support their remote work environments. Bridging private and public clouds can help SMBs stay more flexible, getting the most out of on-premises IT infrastructure while enhancing performance, management, and reliability. HPE ProLiant servers and Windows Server 2019 are built for Hybrid Cloud, enabling SMBs to bridge on-premises and cloud environments with ease.

Build your virtual workplace with HPE ProLiant servers and Windows Server 2019

By partnering with HPE and Microsoft to help implement remote workspaces, SMBs can focus on achieving business goals, not updating IT environments. HPE can help SMBs deploy secure, simple, and flexible working environments based on HPE ProLiant servers and Windows Server 2019 so employees can be productive anywhere they choose to work.
