It can be daunting to know which path to take next given the perceived complexity of the technology options. That is, until you consider a cloud-based solution capable of removing the noise and replacing it with a seamless solution.
Cloud-based solutions remove the need to manage software, abundant hardware, and provide users with access to the resources they need from anywhere and any device. This is especially so if you start with the cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Service, or DaaS as it is commonly known.
DaaS essentially puts your desktop operating environment, and all that is connected to it (servers, data, security and more) into the cloud for accessibility anywhere and anytime by partners and staff.
It enables the accumulated knowledge that resides across your firm to be stored and secured in one location, and access to that knowledge to be available to professional staff no matter where or when they choose to work, and from which device they choose to use.
“It’s all very pain free and seamless, and it gives us peace of mind. We can go home on a Friday evening and know that on Monday morning everything will be up and running. Because we use a private cloud, all our data remains local but we also gain the benefit of having someone on hand 24/7 to answer questions and address issues should they arise.”

Niche opted for OBT’s cloud-based “Desktop Anywhere” service, a hosted desktop service that offered access to Windows applications, data storage, licensing, network management and technical support for a fixed monthly fee. Compared to other cloud services, Desktop Anywhere offered Niche a high degree of customisation in its applications. OBT assumed responsibility for keeping Niche’s systems up and running, and allowed Niche staff to concentrate on their particular areas of expertise and productive client work.
