The "Remote" Environment is a quite abstract type of Environment and is to be considered as any place that is beyond administrative and security control of ArchiSurance. Although client facilities in this Environment might be provided by ArchiSurance (e.g. a mobile PC or a phone), in the Remote Environment they are used without corporate supervision and easily accessible for others. Access to ArchiSurance centralized IT resources is provided by Internet connections.

Business Context

In the Remote Environment, ArchiSurance employees can access centralized ArchiSurance IT-resources, for example on the road, at home or in a hotel, or at an office of a third party that provides public Internet access. Sales representatives, traders, Quality Assurance personnel, IT-administrators are typical user groups that work in this Environment. From this Environment, employees are able to access valuable resources to make better deals, to check important product data on third party or Distribution Point premises, or to process information/accomplish urgent administrative tasks outside business hours.
