IT teams have recently seen a significant transformation in remote desktop management, with distributed work environment being the reality. Preparing for a distributed workforce is challenging when it comes to management of remote devices. Security and compliance have become a critical part of desktop management in this distributed world, and regular desktop management tasks can consume so much time that IT admins find it difficult to focus on higher priority tasks. So, how can you improve IT productivity as well as remote desktop manageability?   Well, that’s what we’re here for!

We here at Chef believe that taking a “Everything-as-Code” approach will help Financial Service organizations to automate the configuration, automate the security or compliance of environments and automate the distribution of applications into heterogeneous environments.  Infrastructure-as-Code: is where Financial Services can automate the process of managing, provisioning and deploying necessary infrastructure resources.

Believe it or not, infrastructure configuration solutions like Chef have been around for more than 10 years now. Over those 10 years, Chef has continued to improve the functionality of Chef Infra, requiring clients to not only upgrade to a new version, but also update some of the associated automation they have built.
