Workspace Transformation – It’s Now or Never

Workspace Transformation – It’s Now or Never

In the wake of the pandemic, businesses rapidly adapted with makeshift remote working solutions. However, as time progresses, the implications of these decisions on productivity and security are becoming evident. Traditional applications, designed for local networks, struggle on remote networks, impacting performance and thereby employee efficiency. This new landscape offers a unique opportunity for workspace transformation. Companies must rethink their strategies, from segmenting users to reevaluating physical workspaces and application landscapes. With proper executive support and a holistic approach that integrates HR and IT departments, organizations can transform challenges into opportunities, ensuring a seamless and secure remote working experience.



In a tumultuous year defined by a global pandemic, 2020 saw a seismic shift in technology trends. From the rapid rise of remote work to an intensified focus on digital channels, the digital transformation was accelerated in unprecedented ways. As the VS Group forged ahead with innovative solutions, the landscape of Healthcare IT, Digital Commerce, and Cybersecurity evolved dramatically. As we transition into 2021, emerging technologies like AI, Big Data Analytics, and Automation are set to shape the future. Join Sadeepa Palliyaguru, Director and Chief Innovation Officer of VS ONE, as he reflects on the past year and offers insights into what the future holds.

Dive into the lessons learned from this incident and explore strategies, shared by our CTO Daniel Ananthan, to fortify data centers against unforeseen challenges.

The Current Pandemic and the Need to Democratise Data

The Current Pandemic and the Need to Democratise Data

In a world grappling with the pandemic, trust in data has become paramount. With allegations of data manipulation and concealment, the need to democratize data has never been more pressing. As data becomes the lifeline for informed decisions, ensuring transparent and holistic data governance is vital for both governments and corporates. Dive into the challenges, solutions, and the imperative of data democratization in these unprecedented times.

Getting Prepared For A Container-Driven Application

Getting Prepared For A Container-Driven Application

Today user satisfaction is the top most concern in digital enterprise. This could be internal or external users and their user experience is one of the most important considerations of the Digital enterprise.

There are multiple variables contributing to the user experience. Some of these elements include

  1. Application performance
  2. Responsiveness
  3. Ease of use
  4. Ease of navigation
  5. Ability of access on any device 

As the demand for better user experience increases application owners are also seeing the demands increasing

  1. Need of increasing the uptime and availability of the session
  2. Need of monitoring the application performance
  3. Need to tune the  application
  4. Need to scale the application resources as when the users/demands grow

Most of the enterprise applications are still deployed as monolithic applications. They are not fluid in terms of performance and scalability. Often the scaling of the application might require forklift hardware upgrades and would take months.

The modern IT demands are much more agile and they need applications which could instantly respond to the demands. The traditional monolithic applications were unable to cater to these demands.

This gave birth to a new application paradigm. This included Microservices, SOA and Container based application development. All of these schools were helping enterprises reduce the application complexity and improve the application development lifecycle. Evolution of Cloud technology perfectly supported these schools and gave rise to multiple technologies which helped create “cloud-native” applications.

I am writing this post on a special day where we received the confirmation of a turnkey container management platform along with compute hardware from a leading telecom operator. This platform will help them to develop and deploy cloud native applications using a single pane of glass. This will help them to develop and scale multiple applications using Cloud native technologies. The benefits of the platform includes

  1. Ability of managing container lifecycle
  2. Rapid application stack provisioning using the built in application marketplace
  3. Integrated monitoring and performance management
  4. Ability of Hybrid cloud application development
  5. Integrated DevOps and testing tool stack

This is only one of our success stories in Cloud native solutions. We have helped a number of government agencies to modernize their applications using Cloud native technologies. These initiatives have been really helpful for the digital transformation of these organizations.

As Analysts predict most of the future workloads are going to be cloud native.  Investment in the development of your new application on Cloud native technologies could save costs for the CIOs.

Some ways how the costs could be reduced includes

  1. Replacing the proprietary runtimes and database stacks using open source databases and application runtimes
  2. Reduction of costs on expensive monitoring solutions and using integrated open source technologies
  3. Reduce the on premise hardware costs for new applications by using Hybrid Cloud and scaling the applications when required
The New Normal is Moving Towards Virtual Reality

The New Normal is Moving Towards Virtual Reality

In the ever-evolving landscape of remote work, the “New Normal” is shifting towards Virtual Reality. As we reminisce about office interactions and navigate challenges like “Zoom Fatigue,” innovations like Facebook’s Horizon Workrooms promise a vibrant future. Integrating VR and AR, the future of work beckons with avatars, virtual stores, and collaborative spaces, redefining our understanding of workplace dynamics in the post-pandemic era.
