Virtual Presence™

Overview

Since the PC revolution began in the early 1980s, the personal computer has literally been “personal”: It is the hub of all productivity and processing, and it’s primarily the responsibility of the user to maintain all the hardware, applications, data, backups, networking, security, and recovery.

This model places a tremendous burden on users whose main objective is not technology, but rather the tasks that it makes possible. In recent years, the paradigm has begun to shift, and it is only accelerating. Consumers are now comfortable subscribing to services and content that they once owned and maintained themselves. Books, videos, music, and podcasts are now overwhelmingly maintained by large service providers and leased to users on an on-demand basis. Virtual Presence™ is the natural evolution of this model into the business world.

The Problem

Hackers and virus writers are relentless and increasingly sophisticated. Applications and operating systems get corrupted and are constantly being patched and upgraded. And, most stressful of all, people drop and lose their laptops and tablets. These and countless related challenges are not the reasons we embrace technology, but are instead the reasons it keeps us up at night. Thankfully, Digicon’s Virtual Presence initiative promises to render all of these concerns obsolete.

Action

Virtual Presence is the overarching effort to deliver the user experience that the PC era envisioned but rarely realized, while removing the onerous costs and complexities associated with distributing the enterprise through countless individual, and often unreliable, machines. Netflix, iTunes, Facebook, and many other virtualized services have proven the value and popularity of consolidating and professionalizing the maintenance and delivery of content. You and your colleagues have already embraced this technology in personal life. Now is the time to introduce this transformation to your business.

Virtual Presence is Digicon’s cloud services delivery platform. Digicon’s Virtual Presence solutions offer reliable, scalable, and secure information technology (IT) solutions using the latest cloud computing technologies to meet the demands of today’s diverse and mobile workforce.

For the National Institutes of Health, Digicon migrated the entire workflow associated with the human genome project to a virtualized, multi-tenant environment.

Prior to this effort, the time required to complete a genome sequence was days to weeks and cost tens of thousands of dollars. With the workflows centrally managed in Digicon’s cloud, sequencing runs were shortened to hours, and the price was slashed to approximately $1,000.

These reductions in cost and time have had a transformative effect, suddenly making these important advances in genetics available to everyone from the family doctor to local law enforcement.

The cost and time savings of virtualizing genome sequencing has made possible the wide distribution of this revolutionary technology to local healthcare providers and law enforcement, among many others.

With an increase in deployments and rapid changes in enemy tactics, the Department of Defense was becoming hamstrung by the burdensome time and expense of rotating troops back and forth from theater to home front for critical training. Whether the training relates to new terrorist communication protocols or IED disarmament techniques, the pace of warfare no longer allows huge gaps between discovery and dissemination to the field.

Digicon built virtualized classrooms—securely delivered from our cloud over terrestrial, cellular, and satellite networks—that can deliver training to and from anywhere in the world.

In transportation costs alone, this system has saved the Department of Defense $10,000 per soldier, per training rotation, and the results can be measured best in lives saved and missions accomplished.

 

In 2009, Digicon virtualized the State of Maryland, Department of Transportation (MDOT)’s enterprise resource system,
including management of human resources and inventory.

All vehicles and workers carry mobile devices that communicate their location and status. The devices interface with the enterprise system and greatly eases the logistical burdens across the board.

For example, snow plow drivers previously had to report to an MDOT office
to record their start and end times. This often required an hour or more to drive each way from the office to their place of work. Now, they clock in and out using the mobile device, saving MDOT more than $1M in just one season.

Virtualization can enable enterprises to apply advanced logistical and management techniques to resources in challenging, non-office work environments. Digicon’s virtualization solution helps MDOT dynamically track and assign its maintenance and inventory assets, improving response times and accuracy and saving millions in taxpayer dollars.
