Videos: University of York Supports BYOD with Bomgar

by |

A common obstacle for today’s IT support teams, particularly those in higher education, is supporting a user base with a wide variety of devices. Between the multitude of laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablets, and the variety of operating systems to go along with them, it’s difficult for IT organizations to keep up. This is part of the challenge with the BYOD (bring your own device) trend.

At this month’s EDUCAUSE trade show, the Bomgar booth featured live lessons from our customers about how they’re using Bomgar to address their support challenges, including BYOD. The following video features a presentation by Sarah Kennedy, IT support office team leader at the University of York, in which she discusses how the University has leveraged Bomgar to meet the BYOD expectations of Generation “Y” students, plus faculty and staff, and support a multitude of devices anytime, anywhere.

Pritpal Rehal, University of York’s Senior Digital Workspace Systems Administrator, also presented at the Bomgar booth about how Bomgar has helped the University say “Yes” to supporting more devices. In the video below Rehal discusses how the University is leveraging Bomgar in unique ways, including using the Intel vPro support integration, the Bomgar Button, plus how users external to IT are using the solution for training and collaboration.
