Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Service Overview

The Digital Sense Desktop as a Service (DaaS) provides virtual desktop instances running on Digital Sense virtual infrastructure.  This provides a platform for customers to address time critical deployment of applications to end users by allowing access to a corporate desktop within minutes, from a supported device. This also allows an organisation to address flexible desktop deployment requirements for users such as contractors, temporary staff, visitors, suppliers etc. or to address specific business requirements such as a project team that needs a specialised desktop during a project.
