Blog | Why the New Year is a perfect time to try Hosted Desktops

A­s cloud computing continues to build momentum, there’s never been a better time to try hosted solutions in your organisation. As businesses evaluate their budget and performance for the previous year, the two major things to measure are productivity and performance and with cloud computing, both of these key performance indicators can be maximised to achieve the best results.

Improved productivity

By utilising hosted desktops and cloud computing, organisations can benefit from a 20% increase in productivity. As downtime to IT systems is significantly reduced, workers no longer have any restrictions. Compare this to a traditional IT setup which involves reporting to the in-house IT department for them to then resolve the issue by physically taking over their workstation for a few hours. With cloud computing, users can continue working whilst their IT is getting sorted in the background. We believe IT should be invisible and should ideally, just work for you without having to stress about it.

Reduced costs

study from Rackspace that surveyed 1,300 companies found that 88% of cloud users experienced cost savings and 56% noted an increase in profits. As upfront costs for hardware are removed, there is no longer any need to pull out a huge chunk of budget to invest in efficient technology. Instead, businesses are free to scale their IT setup up or down with a monthly per-user price model.
