IS DESKTOP HOST RIGHT FOR YOUR BUSINESS?

Ten years ago, very few managers would consider ‘subscribing’ to their mission critical technology solutions over the Internet like they were subscribing to cable television or the telephone company. Security issues, Internet delivery issues, ‘lack of control’ issues were typically provided as rationale. But over that period, industry has experienced fundamental transformations in how products are marketed, sold, manufactured, delivered and serviced.

Today, the Internet is ubiquitous and is being used for highly time and security-sensitive transactions, collaborative commerce and complex supply chains are the norm and new tools are in use to allow for ease of connectivity between applications and companies. As a result, there is a new movement to leverage these capabilities to re-think how software applications are delivered to end-users at lower cost with better service.

WHAT EXACTLY IS DESKTOP HOST?

Desktop Host is much like any other subscription service. Typically, companies pay a per month fee (sometimes a per-user fee) for remote access to the particular Desktop Host functionality. The solutions are typically accessed via the Internet. ManaSyst’s Desktop Host is a leading example of this model. Desktop Host can be delivered in many ways. For instance, Desktop Host can be ‘multi-tenant,’ meaning that one instance of the software can support multiple users across multiple companies. However, remote Desktop Host solutions are designed to maintain a high level of security so that one party cannot see the other party’s data.

In some cases, particularly in larger organizations, a company may have so many users and such large transaction volume that it makes sense to have their own private version of the solution. In either case, like a private conversation on the telephone, all communications are confidential to the organizations involved in a given transaction.

HOW DOES DESKTOP HOST DELIVER VALUE?

Desktop Host delivers both hard, quantifiable benefits and softer, intangible ones.

THE QUANTIFIABLE BENEFITS

• Shared IT management: By pooling IT operations, data center management, application managers, and database administrator’s can all be shared across multiple users.

• No maintenance: Because there is one application and no local software, companies avoid the headache of software upgrades or aging technology.

Imagine being able to access an ultrahigh performing desktop from anywhere. Imagine that connecting into your desktop environment at the office was as easy at home, as being at your company’s desk.

• Shared Technology Infrastructure: By pooling usage across multiple companies, efficiency gains can be realized through better use of data centers, processing and data storage capabilities.

THE INTANGIBLE BENEFITS

• Best practice functionality: By upgrading one version of the solution centrally, every user, whether working for a Fortune 50 company or a start-up, can have access to the same leading capabilities.

• Speed to implementation: Because the solution is delivered via the Internet, users can be up and running very quickly. While there is often some level of customization and preparation that is required, the start-up costs are dramatically lower than for a typical behind-the-firewall solution.

• Freedom of choice: With a typical software installation, the cost of change is prohibitive. But with a remote Desktop Host approach, it is much easier.
