  5. 5. BACK IN JANUARY: Telecommuting Tech Work Anywhere!Remote Computing Video Conferencing Windows Remote Desktop  Google Hangouts LogMeIn  Microsoft Live MessengerVoIP Other/Combination Options RingCentral  Skype  MagicJack  Microsoft Lync Vonage  Coworking Space / Google Voice Temporary Office Relocation
  6. 6. Remote Computing Options Three types of Remote Computing  Web-Enabled Applications  Uses a Web Browser  Ex) Outlook Web Access, Sugar CRM  Remote Access  Connect your home computer or laptop to the office via a secure, private network  Ex) Virtual Private Networking (VPN)  Remote Control  Control your office computer from home  Ex) Remote Desktop Connection, LogMeIn, VNC
  7. 7. Web-Enabled Applications How do users connect to work functions?  Internet Browser to a Web Interface (webpage/website) How does it work?  Applications run on the “web server”, not on your computer  Accessed via any web browser from any location  Secure (SSL encryption, centralized security management)  Information is shared by all authorized employees What types of work functions can be done this way? Anything!  Email  CRM (Customer Relationship Management)  Company “memory” (imagine your own mini-Wikipedia)  Project Management
  8. 8. Remote Access How do users connect to work functions?  Secure, Private Connection How does it work?  User connects to a remote network that allows file sharing, file transfer, printing  Files are opened using the programs on the computer that the user is physically using  Uses Virtual Private Networking (VPN) (configured by IT Professional)  Hardware based connection  Router or firewall appliance  Software based connection  Server-side endpoint
  9. 9. Remote Control How do users connect to work functions?  Remote Desktop How does it work?  User connects to a remote computer that extends the display, keyboard & mouse functions to the user’s computer What types of work functions can be done this way?  Anything that a user does while at the office  Generally, not good for graphics-intensive programs  Great for limited bandwidth connections  Commonly used for Tech Support
  10. 10. Remote Control Two types  In-House (No third party connection) - requires static IP with port map in router  Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)  Virtual Network Computing (VNC)  Hosted (Connect to a third party)  LogMeIn  GoToMyPC  GoToAssist – Tech Support
  11. 11. Other Considerations Security  as secure as password Cost Factors  depends on selected options (starts at free) Resources (who to talk to)  IT Professionals  In-house or outside resources (this Technology Committee) Timeliness of Implementation  one month to configure & test  Just enough time before the Blanchette Bridge closure
  12. 12. Tech Tip of the Month Yahoo Users  Unsubscriber
