Stop Doing Costly, Manual Desktop Setups and Updates and Start Saving with Virtualization
Every time someone from IT manually updates an employee’s desktop in your organization, it makes a distinctive sound.
It’s the sound of unnecessary IT spending on manual efforts to keep individual PCs up to date with the latest patches or the newest versions of operating systems and apps. And the more employees and devices your organization has, the faster that spending adds up.
App and desktop virtualization can change all that. Instead of running apps and operating systems locally on each individual PC, centralize them in the data center and deliver them as a service over a network connection to the actual hardware where they’ll be running.
This approach allows IT to spend a lot less time and effort on things like software deployment and patching, desktop software installation and desktop setup and configuration, and significantly reduces the cost of employee onboarding and ongoing desktop management.
The impact goes beyond managing apps and desktops internally, too, because you can use this same approach to set up and manage off-site desktops and other systems and devices for remote workers. So it’s easy and cost-effective to set up a mobile workforce with the systems and secure access they need.
If you’re thinking “Where do I sign up?” you’ll be glad to know that’s easy, too. WAMS delivers app and desktop virtualization solutions powered by Citrix to your business.
There are lots of choices on how to deploy virtualization, based on your situation. If your employees are working on relatively new desktops, you can keep those in place and just manage them centrally. But if you’ve got a fleet of aging desktops, you can do even better than that by turning them into thin-client PCs or replacing them with new thin clients.
Thin clients have no hard drives; they don’t need them, since apps and desktop software are being distributed to them from a central location. Because they have fewer moving parts, they’re less likely to fail, so they tend to last much longer than typical PCs, for even more cost savings.
