IT As a Service
IT as a Service, an interesting concept… Rather than being a white labelled “desktop as a service” offering, the Cloud Shepherd platform is built from the ground up to be agile, secure, scalable and most importantly, flexible.
From provisioning through deployment to end user on-going service, the environment is our own architecture that has been purpose-built to deliver the most effective, scalable and efficient virtual desktop platform.
Use any Device
Cloud managed desktop is available on any device, bringing true diversity and mobility to the modern organisation.
This allows for mix and match of aged and modern IT estates. The implementation of thin client devices, and mobile devices, can allow businesses to foster a “bring your own device” (BYOD) strategy.
This delivers multi-device access for all users to include their offices, their mobile devices and their home computers
Save energy and reduce co2 emissions
With a cloud-managed desktop, your computing is done in a data centre, this means it’s all done on the most energy-efficient hardware available, and because it’s centralised there are much lower power overheads, this means you will see huge reductions to the environmental impact of your business IT with make use happy and the planet happy.
Consolidate IT costs
Historical capital expenditure investment in equipment has made computer power, storage and scalability very hard to manage. The disparate resource of PC hard drives, RAM and processor power have meant that many organisations have had far more resources than they could effectively use, and manage.
Deployment of a managed desktop delivers exactly what is necessary to provide all users with sufficient compute power – paid for per user, per month. This shift to operational expenditure based costing for IT allows for instant elasticity, long term scalability and easy fixed cost growth for the business.
IT decisions are hard to make… we’ve been there.
The key to the growth of most organisations is cost efficient agility, allowing them to compete in any market, at any pace. Future proofing the tech infrastructure with a virtual desktop allows the business to deploy exactly what is necessary, when its necessary, where its necessary – to instantly accommodate any change within the business. All of this happens at a fixed cost per user.
There are no refresh points and no technology expiry – we upgrade everything for you. Software licensing provided by Cloud Shepherd permits access to the most up to date versions. The end user access equipment becomes simplistic, and easy to manage.
Defining a technical handover point in any IT estate is always difficult. The managed desktop, and in particular when delivered over a fully managed network, allows for a very clear handover point ensuring skill sets employed by the business are deliberate and in line with user engagement, productivity and growth strategies rather than break fix and IT estate management.
Traditionally, 80% of IT budgets have been spent on doing what you do. 20% spent on creating new ways of doing business.
We are here to change that.
