Seamless Windows Virtual Desktop Implementation in Four Steps


Version 1 Cloud experts will help you to define scope, understand business context and discover your pre-launch considerations in areas such as licencing, Azure AD, design and user adoption to advise on the best options available to you.


Version 1 will help provision and configure a Windows Virtual Desktop tenancy for you, or if you have one already, provide our technical services team with access to configure the tenancy. We will deploy a host pool, prepare a test VM image and prepare a user profile container. Our team will then publish one application and your desktop pool.


Learning is critical to user adoption. We can help upskill your IT team through support for complex queries and/or augment your IT team to help serve and educate your users. We can provide remote training sessions as well as rich user training materials combined with access to a dedicated team to support your users, resolve ad-hoc queries and accelerate adoption.


Version 1 will handover to you and can help you to plan for your medium to long term needs:

Adoption and Change Management:

Version 1 can continue to support adoption and change management services to continue to  bring value by bringing business use cases to life and ensuring that users adopt new services as part of their natural rhythm of work.

Custom Solutions:

Microsoft Teams, Office 365 and PowerAutomate provide a rich platform for building innovative  solutions and applications which cater to your evolving business needs.

We also offer optional extended support and custom conditional policies.
