• Konica Minolta enhances cloud capabilities of Workplace Hub

        • The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst for remote and hybrid work environments. In line with these developments, Konica Minolta is now opening its Workplace Hub ecosystem to Windows Operating System (OS) in a bid to increase the flexibility of application support, whilst also ensuring compatibility with a wide range of Microsoft and other third-party solutions. 

          The new products in the Workplace Hub portfolio based on the Windows Operating System will be Workplace Hub Smart and Workplace Hub Core.

          Phillip John, Product Marketing Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd said, "this change increases our ability to meet the demand for cloud capabilities whilst maintaining our flexibility in terms of meeting differing customer requirements. Customers can now choose to use these new products as part of their move to the cloud, use the existing products to keep their data on-premise or adopt a hybrid strategy. As 75 per cent of Konica Minolta customers use the Windows Operating System, this technology change enables our Workplace Hub solutions to be more easily integrated into our customers’ existing infrastructure. It also provides greater functionality, as well as flexibility, through its native connectivity to Azure Active Directory and Microsoft cloud applications.

           "With our extensive portfolio of IT services and our broad network of top-tier partners such as Microsoft and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we will be able to deliver innovative solutions to our customers and support them as they develop their IT infrastructure to meet the requirements of the organisation for accelerated transformation.”
