As the future-of-work concept becomes a reality for organisations worldwide, employees demand the flexibility to work, collaborate and innovate anytime, anywhere and in any way they want.

IMG_20190625_140432

Businesses must provide this type of environment to attract new talent and keep their current employees engaged, productive and secure with devices personalised for their needs. Yet IT departments are often unable to focus on transformative initiatives for employee experience as they spend the majority of their time mired in run-the-business tasks like PC deployment, help desk requests, and monitoring and troubleshooting.

Dell Technologies introduces Unified Workspace to help IT transform the end-user experience.

This visionary approach to end-user computing will give workers a frustration-free, ready-to-work experience, while enabling IT with automated, open and intelligent solutions for unified management. Dell Technologies Unified Workspace will revolutionise the way IT admins assist and enable their end users with device selection, deployment, security, management and support through flexible, scalable services and solutions that integrate with any customer environment, regardless of OS, device and cloud environment.

“IT departments today still struggle with basic tasks like PC deployment, help desk requests, and monitoring and troubleshooting, and are often unable to focus on transformative initiatives for employee experience. What they need is a solution that gives employees a frustration-free, ready-to-work experience, while enabling IT with automated, open and intelligent solutions for unified management. Dell Technologies Unified Workspace platform does just that – enabling IT admins to assist and enable their end-users with device selection, deployment, security, management and support in any customer environment, regardless of OS, device and cloud preference.”explained KT Ong, Country Manager – Malaysia, Dell Technologies.

Enabling IT to empower workers

Dell Technologies Unified Workspace helps make customers’ workforce transformation a reality by allowing IT to streamline time-consuming, complex, yet critical tasks with capabilities that provide visibility, insights and automation. The integrated platform allows customers to begin wherever they need the most help – whether it’s in the selection process or deployment or even security or management – and then move to the next priority until they have the full Unified Workspace experience to enable IT and empower workers.

Modernising PC deployment and management from the cloud

Traditional PC lifecycle management (PCLM) is high-touch, expensive and does not scale to increasingly mobile and remote workers. With VMware Workspace ONE as the backbone of Dell Technologies Unified Workspace, customers can utilise unified endpoint management technology to modernise how they deploy, manage and secure their Dell devices.

Once a device is deployed, unified endpoint management capabilities from Workspace ONE make it possible for customers to move beyond traditional PCLM with cloud policy management, streamlined application delivery, automated patching and improved device health monitoring and diagnostics. Workspace ONE delivers a unified, digital workspace experience as employees can seamlessly access any native, SaaS or internal application with single sign on from any device.

Through our integration with Microsoft, customers will benefit from Microsoft 365, Workspace ONE, and Dell Provisioning and Deployment Services seamlessly enabling world-class, modern IT deployment and end-user productivity.

The result is JOHNSON’S gentlest range of baby care products ever, raising the bar of our Best for Baby standard from the formulation to packaging design.”Mr. Prashant Mahalingam, Country Director, Consumer at Johnson & Johnson Malaysia.

IMG_20190510_111011

Marking its biggest re-launch-to-date, the New JOHNSON’S sets the new standard for gentle through the selection of purposeful ingredients and complete ingredient transparency.

Ingredients portfolio have been reduced by over 50% with naturally-derived oils like coconut and cottonseed replacing ingredients like mineral oil. The new range has 0% parabens, phthalates, sulfates and dyes-less than 2% of cosmetic ingredients globally meets these standards of gentleness.

The new range features 4 ‘Ages & Stages’ to help parents easily navigate between the products within their ranges. The New JOHNSONS’S baby care range is suitable for minutes old newborn babies to 6-year-old kids.

Reasons babies require gentle products

To help Malaysian mothers understand why newborns and toddlers need gentle skin care, Datuk Dr. Zulkifli Ismail, Consultant Pediatrician and Secretary General of the Asia Pacific Association lends his presence at the launch to answer some frequently asked questions from moms. He explained that infant’s skin is under-developed and is therefore delicate and requires gentle cleansing and care.

“A newborn’s epidermis or the outmost layer of skin is 30% thinner than adults. It means it cannot absorb and retain moisture in the skin and is prone to moisture evaporation and dry skin”

With baby skin already vulnerable to losing moisture, strong cleansers will only disrupt the skin barrier even more, causing further dehydration. As such, parents need to select gentle cleansers that do not disrupt baby’s delicate skin and keep the skin barrier hydrated and in healthy condition with moisturizing.

Why you should CHOOSE gentle

“At JOHNSON’S, we have always been committed to delivering only the best for babies. We have never been more passionate in advocating for parents to CHOOSE gentle, that is to select the gentlest baby care products for their little one.” shared Mr. Prashant Mahalingam.

Excited about the JOHNSON’S CHOOSE gentle campaign, several celebrity mothers attended the launch to show their support.

“As my little boy is actively crawling and constantly on all fours on the various floor surfaces at home, I have to ensure his skin is well moisturized and protected so that he can enjoy his exploration and develop happily.” said actress and model Amyra Rosli who became a mother in 2017, and advocate of gentle baby care products for 1 year 7 months old Aqeef Anaqi Amar.

Comedian actress and well-known radio announcer Gan Mei Yan also advocates Malaysian moms to CHOOSE gentle. The mother of two recommends JOHNSON’S CottonTouch Wash and Lotion for newborns and infants below 12 months.

“I believe every newborn deserves the gentlest baby care products. This ultra-light, easy-to-rinse wash and lightweight lotion with no sticky residue allow me to get a good grip of my little Seng Sum during bath and change. It gives me even more confidence to handle her, even though I have had experience caring for Seng Jo. And the smell..it makes her even more lovable to hug and hold. Expecting moms, you need this JOHNSON’S gentlest baby care for newborns!

The New JOHNSON’S range of baby care products will be available at major outlets nationwide starting June 2019.
