Desktop Services

Protecting your workstations and mobile PCs

Fujitsu Philippines, Inc.'s (FPI) service suite ensures that the primary business tools of the 21st century - the desktop machines - are always available for use by the enterprise.

Desktop machines such as personal computers, notebooks, workstations, PC servers, printers, scanners, and other peripherals have become ubiquitous in today's business environments. It is through this evolved daily reliance that FPI came out with desktop services to ensure that the desktop machines will always be available for use.

Primary Business Tool

Desktop machines are the primary interfaces of employees for tapping into vast resources of enterprises. It is the employee's primary tool for getting the job done. Due to its constant and daily use, desktop machines require high reliability and high availability. Add this 21st century reality to the fact that desktop machines are not cheap. One will find the wisdom in ensuring the proper and appropriate maintenance for desktop machines to ensure the achievement of the expected returns.

According to a Gartner Group survey, the acquisition cost is just a small fraction of the actual total cost associated with desktop computing. The total cost of ownership (TCO) of a PC over a five-year period is anywhere between 20 percent to 80 percent of the machine's original cost. Most of these costs are associated with the centralized management and support operations needed to meet the service levels required by users of desktop machines.

Clearly, with the importance of desktop IT assets growing, the costs of running and supporting these machines are also rising. As organizations increase, their reliance on desktop machines and, the need for a comprehensive suite of support services also increases to ensure its availability.
