Dimension Data to provide desktop as a service for governmentNovember 4 - 11am
Dimension Data New Zealand has been awarded a place on the all-of-government Desktop-as-a-Service panel, in a bid to enable agencies to better focus on their customers and provide better public services.
“Our inclusion on the all-of-government panel provides us with a great opportunity to work with government organisations to take the stress away from buying, building, installing and operating computer hardware and software,” says Simon Gillespie, CEO, Dimension Data New Zealand.
“3D Workspace provides an efficient and highly cost-effective service for organisations wishing to have better flexibility for their workforce and better control of their business, integrating the best of the virtual desktop experience with that of the traditional desktop.
“It can be scaled up and down to meet the evolving requirements of both the user and the business.”
Gillespie says the company has combined its global capability and relationships, together with local knowledge and skills, to deliver a “compelling New Zealand-based desktop solution for government organisations wanting modern virtual and traditional desktop provision and management.”
The Crown Law Office has already begun to transform its desktop platform with 3D Workspace, giving its Crown Counsel the capability to securely access corporate desktops on any device, anywhere.
Hayley Carthy, Crown Law CIO, says the organisation recognised a need to lighten its paper load, and sought an effective strategy that would see its counsel provided with all the case information they needed at their fingertips.
“Our Crown Counsel will now have the ability to securely access our corporate desktop from iPads, as well as on traditional desktops, giving them the ability to work collaboratively and more effectively throughout our office, as well as in the courtroom or client’s place of work,” Carthy says.
Gillespie claims that Crown Law no longer needs to worry about where employees are based, or the mechanics of IT delivery.
“Instead, we’ve made innovative consumption based services available so Crown Law, and other organisations in the future, can work more efficiently,” he says.
“Furthermore, Crown Law has been able to achieve this without the need for capital expenditure.”
