Ultima Desktop Optimisation Methodology
Many current desktop environments are underpinned by ageing technology which in most cases includes Windows® XP and in some cases, even older systems. Such organisations are typically looking to optimise their corporate desktop infrastructures to help resolve current challenges by providing IT the manageability it requires while giving users the varying levels of power and flexibility they need.
A key goal of Desktop Optimisation is to assess the current level of infrastructure maturity, identify a desired state and build a gap analysis highlighting the areas of people, process and technology to invest in for better alignment with the business. It takes advantage of technologies which help automate processes, create bridges between systems and wrap comprehensive management around the desktop.
What is UDOM
Ultima has developed a Desktop Optimisation Methodology (UDOM) to not only assist organisations in assessing their desktop maturity but also to provide a framework for the selection and deployment of a flexible, optimised infrastructure. UDOM is designed to help organisations to drive business value and ensure the desktop becomes a business enabler. UDOM links to the business requirements (IT and User) to create a flexible, efficient, and managed desktop environment centred around existing and complementary technologies. It achieves this by defining and using standardised user scenarios that map business requirements to technology solutions. UDOM takes references from the Microsoft Desktop Optimisation model, desktop life-cycle and Ultima desktop deployment best practices.
Ultima specialises in designing and deploying complex desktop solutions, often integrating multiple hardware and software technologies including leading products from; Microsoft, Citrix, VMware, AppSense, Symantec and Check Point. UDOM engagement approaches are flexible and customisable, and provide the basic framework for any review and ultimately, design and implementation of an optimised desktop solution. Focusing on improving service levels and user experience, standard UDOM packaged service engagements include:
- UDOM Lite (3-5 days)
- UDOM Standard (6-10 days)
- UDOM Strategic (11-20 days)
