Fujitsu has announced plans to launch a desktop managed services offering that will allow companies to outsource the management of individual desktop workstations.
Driving the service will be Fujitsu's new Active Service Management programme, which seeks to improve IT services by providing more detailed analysis of costs and more consistent and significant improvements to the IT service system.
Fujitsu hopes to gain a share of what it sees as a rejuvenated market for managed IT services. The company said that it currently manages some one million desktops in the UK alone, and suggested that the figure may soon rise.
"Although underlying services must have commodity attributes - low cost, high standardisation and flexibility - they must also be continuously and rigorously managed, tuned and refined for each customer to deliver significant improving benefits and reduced costs," said Iain Bradbury, solution design director for Fujitsu's UK and Ireland branches.
"We believe that 2010 will be the year for the revival of desktop managed services, particularly as we move into a more virtualised environment and customers are challenging how they are running their desktops."
