Dell Monitor Productivity Study: Examining The Effects Of External Monitors On Remote Worker Productivity

Thumb original monitors %2b io productivity final paper  002

There has been a dramatic rise in the number of remote workers over the last decade and a half. Recent global events have forced a rapid boom in the number of remote workers, many of whom may remain so permanently. A number of surveys from around the globe have determined that many companies will likely transition some of their previously on-site workforce to permanent remote work positions.

Remaining productive while working from home can be a major challenge for some users, who are not accustomed to performing their duties under less than optimal conditions. It is not uncommon for on-site workers to have access to powerful desktop systems, docking stations, and multiple monitors, but when working from home these same users are relegated to their laptop alone. When users are forced to be productive on relatively small, single laptop displays, and cramped laptop keyboards and touchpads, they often have to make unfortunate trade-offs that may hinder productivity. For example, users may have to bounce between open applications and windows, or shrink down their application windows to fit alongside each other on a laptop display, which often necessitates additional scrolling and sub-optimal ergonomic conditions. These trade-offs are mitigated when large or multiple external monitors and proper input devices are connected, which enable easier viewing and navigation of multiple applications, simultaneously. Ideal placement and positioning of the monitors can also alleviate many ergonomic issues.

Building Proactive Defenses Against Advanced OT Threats

Industries that utilize operational technology (OT) are under pressure to maintain the highest levels of uptime, availability, and safety. This includes critical infrastructure (e.g., hydroelectric dams, nuclear power plants, oil and gas pipelines)—where a system failure can directly impact human lives or the environment. But as OT systems evolve to increasingly interact with information technology (IT) systems, this convergence is creating new pathways for bad actors to disrupt these sensitive environments. Plant managers and operations leader ...

Extending SD-WAN To OT Environments: Challenges and Solutions

The convergence of operational technology (OT) environments with enterprise-grade information technology (IT) solutions is offering many breakthrough capabilities across industrial businesses, manufacturing, and critical infrastructure. Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) is one such solution. SD-WAN can replace traditional WAN across distributed and remote deployment infrastructures with higher-performing and more affordable commodity internet connections. But this performance and cost savings comes at the cost of losing traditional ...

The cloud is not transforming the technology; it’s transforming the business – its processes, organizational structures, governance, and skills.
