Application and desktop virtualization

Our offerings bring the familiar to the work environment. We deliver flexible and secure connectivity, intuitive interfaces, and simple access to all applications and data, anytime and from anywhere, using virtually any endpoint device—company-issued or personal—with personalized support whenever employees need help. It works best in a hybrid work setup, as companies can save on real estate expenses by reducing the number of people on-site and implementing a hot desk policy.

Customized employee experiences

Identify the right virtual desktop type and size for your end users by assessing current environment readiness, computing, storage, and network, and understanding the workstyle, and application landscape of each individual user. A fast, consumption-based model enables rapid provisioning and rule based autoscaling of desktops.

Desktop virtualization consulting and implementation services

Our services help transform and secure the employee experience to deliver innovative workplace virtualization solutions, including virtual desktop and digital experience management (DEM). We help our customers plan, design and implement these solutions through a consultative approach to improve business outcomes. Additionally, the hybrid work model enables organizations to tap into a global talent pool, allowing them to hire individuals with specialized skills, gain a competitive edge, expand into new markets, and ensure productivity around the clock.
