  3. 3. The Challenges for One Company Desktop as a Service•Today, managing desktop and application environments to keep pace with growthhas become difficult for many companies.•One organization in particular found virtualizing these environments created a moreagile IT operation.•For example, an independent natural food store chain operates over 150 stores, threewarehouses and a corporate office in the United States.•With an internal IT staff of only 16, desktop management and deployment becamegeographically challenging, inconsistent and cumbersome for the company.•The organization knew they needed to establish a Desktop as a Service environmentthat would not only reduce user downtime, but also scale easily in response to rapidgrowth and adapt to business demands.•In addition, application management on a corporate level was anything but seamlessbetween internal and external end users.•The company needed to help streamline the process of managing and deployingcurrent and future applications. http://www.oneneck.com Copyright © 2013 OneNeck IT Services Corporation.

Why Desktop as a Service Made Sense Desktop as a Service•After careful analysis, the natural food store chain decided to outsource themanagement and hosting of their desktop and application environments.•They selected a vendor with similar values, work ethic and a strong presence in thetechnology sector.•The result was a strategic approach to developing and implementing an innovativeand highly efficient virtual desktop and application environment.•Desktop as a Service, sometimes referred to as “DaaS,” involves the process ofpresenting a user desktop from inside the data center.•The desktop workload is moved away from the local computing device and placed inthe cloud infrastructure.•The user data, profiles and computing load remain secure within the vendor’s cloudserver environment.•By virtualizing their existing desktop and application environments, the companywas able to foster a more agile IT environment. http://www.oneneck.com Copyright © 2013 OneNeck IT Services Corporation.
