The way we consume IT has changed dramatically over the last five years. At ComputerWorld we focus on what users are doing and the user experience – the technology used is secondary. This is how we improve business productivity and allow users to securely work in the way they want. 

Business mobility

We empower your employees to work securely anytime, anywhere on any device giving your team the freedom and flexibility to be more efficient.

End user computing

With the consumerisation of technology and the mainstream popularity of mobile devices and Cloud-based solutions, the once simple area of the desktop has changed beyond recognition.


Flexibility & freedom

With the evolution of the modern desktop, IT departments increasingly need to deliver flexible working environments that provide freedom for employees to use whatever device suits them, wherever they are and whenever they need to. Files and data must always be available with the ability to install their own applications – and knowing that their files and data are always available.

ComputerWorld understands that there is more to end user computing than simply virtual desktops, and that no two customers are the same. When designing business mobility end user computing solutions, it is important to understand the business and the users and to deliver a solution that can empower them to do their job with the best user experience possible.

This short case study discusses how ComputerWorld helped DAS Group upgrade their XP desktop estate before April 2014. ComputerWorld helped DAS move their current physical, unmanaged estate to a virtual, managed desktop.


How we can help

ComputerWorld works alongside the market leaders in this space to deliver the solution that is right for the customer through a consultative approach. Most end user computing solutions will involve a mixture of technologies with Virtual Desktops, Application Virtualisation, Personal Management, Personal Cloud Storage and Thin Clients – all key considerations when considering the business and user goals along with budget.

The most successful end user computing (EUC) solutions will start by completing a desktop analysis within the existing environment allowing us to understand:

  • What applications are currently installed and which applications are actually used?
  • What are the performance requirements of individual users?
  • What user experience are the users currently getting?
  • Are the users being affected by slow log-in times or crashing applications?
  • Lots more
