“Desktops are in many ways the lifeblood of the company’s daily work, so it makes sense to keep them on a central server where we can make sure nothing goes wrong. Being able to give users an optimum working environment, and helping them benefit from new advances in technology, is something that we as IT professionals find very motivating”
