Fujitsu today announces its Government Desktop as a Service offering – GoDaaS. Built specifically for New Zealand Government as part of the DaaS Common Capability panel, GoDaaS will benefit every agency wanting to enable a secure BYOD workplace and remote options for staff, while avoiding expensive and lengthy desktop operating system upgrade projects. It is based on Fujitsu’s global Workplace Anywhere service, which currently supports over 200,000 users.

All public sector entities are invited to the launch information sessions and technology exhibition for GoDaaS in Wellington on 4 March. Fujitsu and Citrix will team to explain how this powerful new offering can improve business flexibility and simplify IT environments.

Participants will see GoDaaS in action and learn about the commercial model, its self-service capabilities, the seamless switching between virtual and traditional desktops, how it integrates into existing environments, and even see how a smartphone can be used as a fully functional thin-client. There will also be the opportunity to receive a 14 day trial of GoDaaS.

Stuart Stitt, MD of Fujitsu NZ, said: “Fujitsu recently presented GoDaaS at the global Citrix Summit in Las Vegas where it was the star of the show. All New Zealand government agencies have an opportunity at the launch event to experience one of the most advanced managed desktop services in the world.”
