End-user computing or EUC is a platform that allows non-programmers to create working computer applications. It works as a combination or as a compilation of techniques to involve and integrate end-users and non-programmers into computing systems development. EUC acts as a medium for anyone to make use or to know computing systems and its processes.
End-user computing is a broad term, but the underlying function remains the same which is to allow end-users to have better control over their computing environment without the assistance of real programmers or developers.
End user computing also makes organisations bring its full digital workspace to life.
If the EUC has well designed strategies then it enables the organisation to map out how the digital platforms can be accessed by the users and also on how they can be more productive both on premise and on remote work.
It also includes a full range of tools which are necessary and helpful in completing required tasks while considering how to contribute to the growth of organisation without any disruption.
In order to provide mobile workforce access to the applications, end-user computing should be implemented. All-Flash storage and Converged Infrastructure makes implementing EUC much faster and simpler, which also allows you to focus on delivering effortless and seamless access instead of making any changes to the underlying infrastructure.
Benefits and Advantages of End User Computing:
The benefits of End user computing are many, below listed are some of the advantages of End user computing:
- Centralized Management: End-user computing helps in making centralized working for the organization instead of having separate workstations for each employee henceforth reducing the space consumed and a number of systems. It helps in easier management of desktop fleet within the organization and also reduces the need for specialised IT resources as staff.
- Own Device Support: In a normal organizational scenario, the employer has to provide systems to the employees. But with end-user computing, the employees have the freedom to use their own system. It acts beneficial for both the parties as employers can cut down the costs and employees can enjoy using their own system.
- Security: One of the most important areas of concern is definitely security. There are many applications that can aid security. The organization can add or implement strategies that can support and prevent any sort of security threats.
- Freeing up IT resources: Implementing EUC enables limiting IT resources as even someone without programming experience can work in systems.
- Versatility and ease of use: The users have the freedom to modify and change according to their need.
- User creation, control and implementation: It is up to the user as to whether the system should be developed, maintained and information which needs to be created and stored.
