To better respond to the evolving business climate, financial services firms are accelerating growth through consolidations, divestitures, mergers, strategic partnerships, offshoring, and acquisitions. In doing so, they need to ensure business continuity amid sudden variations in the workforce. Transitioning employees across functions such as cards, retail banking, commercial banking, wealth management, lending, and investment banking also need quick omni-channel access to the
acquiring bank's platforms and applications to function productively.
In such situations, pressure mounts on the IT organization to quickly provide workspaces, computin end points, and platform access to the newly onboarded employees. Long device procurement times and delays in access approvals could result in productivity loss, employee angst, and overall service disruption.
