Desktop deployment and management

You're looking for a desktop environment that's secure, cost-effective and easy to administer. Since the release of Microsoft® Windows XP there have been many changes in the ways desktops can be deployed and managed. Like many businesses, you may view a migration to Microsoft® Windows 7 or Windows 8 as an opportunity to improve the overall desktop management lifecycle.

How do you implement a desktop strategy that meets the needs of the business, users and IT?




You need to balance a number of competing priorities such as cost, security and flexibility. Charting the way forward also requires that you consider the technical, organizational and legal nuances of your business.

Our approach involves moving away from the tightly bound, traditional desktop environment to a loosely coupled, optimized desktop stack that provides choices in terms of:

  • desktop device
  • application delivery
  • physical or virtual servers

With choice comes flexibility and agility. You can provide different technical solutions to different user groups to deliver the optimal experience.  You avoid the compromise of a 'one-size-fits-all' approach.

We ensure that legacy infrastructure in your environment doesn't delay or derail your journey to an agile and optimized next-generation desktop. We've developed a number of solutions – such as application and Microsoft® Office file migrations – to help remove common stumbling blocks.
