A flexible desktop service to meet the diverse computing needs of your end-users
Fujitsu Managed Desktop takes care of your desktop environment driving out cost, improving workforce productivity and ensuring the flexibility to meet changing business demands.
Where in the past standardising the desktop environment was viewed as a key way to deliver cost savings, organisations now need to contend with and support a diversity of:
- Technology devices: from PCs and laptops to the proliferation of tablets and smartphones
- User expectations: with a workforce comprising baby boomers, generation x and digital natives
- User roles: from task workers and knowledge workers to mobile users and office-based executives
- Locations: providing flexible access to computing resources whether in the office, at home, on the move or at a WiFi hotspot
Our desktop services have been designed to both manage this diversity and respond effectively as needs change. So if your workforce contracts or expands, as the need to support more flexible and mobile working practices grows - and as consumer technology becomes more accepted in the workplace, you have the flexibility and capability to meet these demands.
Find out why organisations choose Managed Desktop from Fujitsu.

We also consider how these problems can be eliminated moving forward – through better design and proactive system management. In addition, Managed Desktop is underpinned by lean principles and a culture of continuous improvement to ensure users can rely on IT to meet their needs.

Insights & Opinions
In this opinion article, Fujitsu Strategy Consultant Mark Wilson argues that while tablets aren't new, next-generation devices like the iPad, as well as competing products running on Android, Windows and other operating systems, offer compelling new capabilities for consumers and enterprises alike, coupled with convenience and cost advantages. But organisations must rethink their desktop service and access strategies if they're going to take full advantage of the new form factor, he says.
The paybacks of adding a Lean dimension
Fujitsu's Andy Taylor argues the merits of a flexible, lean approach to tech support often refered to as “break-fix”. He shows how proactive monitoring and predictive maintenance can drastically reduce costs and improve service levels, often through the implementation of simple, commonsense measures. But he cautions CIOs must work with service providers like Fujitsu who have a specific, proven commitment to continual service improvement.
