The IT infrastructure demands of today are not what they were just a few years ago. The IT department is no longer in the business of managing hardware or software - it now delivers the services that enable the organisation to reach its mission, to be more agile, to respond on demand and to control costs. Today the expectation is that IT will not be a cost centre but will be the engine of growth, driving an organisation-wide transformational agenda by delivering higher levels of efficiency, agility and cost management.

At Dell we have a long history of working closely with our local government customers and we understand the high-level drivers of change within the environment. This extensive experience has given us unique insights into the challenges our customers face when transforming their organisations.

S2Gov’s AppsAnywhere is helping Public Sector organisations across the world to become more efficient, effective, deliver great service and drive down ICT costs.

Already we’ve worked with significant organisations, such as City of Copenhagen and Glasgow Caledonian, to deliver innovative technology and to accommodate their changing and challenging working environment. In doing so we’ve given them 100% control of their desktop estate, as an alternative to traditional legacy technologies such as VDI and RDS.

Take complete control of your desktop estate costs by determining which of your 100s of software titles are being utilised, which are not, and see what really needs to be deployed to your users.

Get a handle on software license costs, enjoying accurate usage monitoring (license metering) on a per-user, per-device per-app basis, enabling you to make the best decisions when it comes license renewals. Typically, organisations using AppsAnywhere have driven down license spend by up to 10% per year.

We enable your organisation to empower your workforce.

Self-service access to software isn’t just a ‘nice to have’; it fundamentally increases productivity, reduces downtime and improves security.

IT administration also becomes more efficient; once you know which applications are being utilised then some awesome benefits will ripple across the business. The most obvious one is not having to waste time deploying those apps to the users, whether that be packaged, through an image or one of the multitude of alternative delivery methods.

AppsAnywhere reduces image size by 75% and packaging time by 50%, regardless of whether any apps are turned on or off. And with AppsAnywhere migrating to Windows 10 is no longer a nightmare.
