The Life Cycle of an Employee

The Life Cycle of an Employee
Employees all follow a similar life cycle, some longer than others, but none are unique. Employees are hired, their access changes over their tenure, and then they leave your company. In each of those three phases, technology and access is given to each of your employees, and Accordant makes this an easy process for companies both large and small by utilizing RES Software. Let’s look at the Life Cycle of an Employee.

On-Boarding:
An employee is hired and they are given the tools to successfully complete their daily tasks. That includes phones, tablets and laptops, as well as access to applications that are housed on their computers or dashboards in the cloud.

Access Management:
During an employee’s time with a company, they are often given new responsibilities and even new roles, and with every change comes the need for new access. With RES software, Accordant can manage secure access to approved applications and services by leveraging profile management and IT automation to identify the user and their context, and allow them to request and consume IT services on-demand.

Off-Boarding:
When an employee leaves a company, the need to take away access to data, secure information and systems, as well as devices, is often needed quickly. Accordant can take away access and keep your company information secure with RES Software almost immediately.

Cloud Computing Made Simple

In the IT world, we say words and phrases like cloud computing, virtual servers and hosting daily, and sometimes forget that not everyone uses such terms as casually as we do. It’s not only great to understand what these terms mean, but also understand how they can make your business run more efficiently. Accordant provides cloud services and hosting, as well as virtual server access through Green Cloud Technologies. Let’s take a look at the details of each service:

Cloud Services Basics 
Before cloud services or cloud computing, all of a computer’s hardware and software was sitting on a desktop or inside a company network, meaning you could only access it inside the four walls of the company. Now, with cloud services, computer hardware and software can be accessed over the Internet, as it lives in the cloud, meaning you can access things like email, Excel, Word and PowerPoint, from any device, any place, at any time. If it’s a program that lives on your desktop, laptop or an online dashboard like a CRM tool, it doesn’t’t matter, it’s all accessible remotely. 

What is Cloud Hosting?
Hosting of a website or platform can be provided through a few different means. You can purchase a server and host it on that server, you can buy space on a company’s service for a fee, or you can now use Cloud Hosting. Cloud hosting can host a multitude of platforms in the cloud or on a virtual servers. So what was once only used for websites, now, can be for all platforms. 

This Brings Us to Virtual Servers 
A virtual server is how we give our customers access to their stored files, CPU, memory, network bandwidth and connectivity to applications remotely. Virtual servers are secure and scalable, so as you need more space, you can get it. Virtual servers are the compilation of cloud services and cloud hosting, and make cloud-based applications, your website and workflow and project management dashboards accessible from anywhere, making your data available and better yet, secure.
