Virtual Desktop

Accelerate Microsoft

AVD Adoption

Moving to Azure Virtual Desktop offers a flexible work environment and provides a modern end-user with beneficial cost savings and no security compromises. However, applications are often overlooked when moving to Azure Virtual Desktop which results in projects incurring costly delays.

Ensuring that all applications required by users are compatible with AVD can be a significant challenge. Some applications may require modifications or updates to function properly in a virtualised environment.

Camwood can accelerate both adoption and migration by automatically packaging, testing and deploying applications to your Azure Virtual Desktop environment.

62% of AVD projects are delayed

by 3-6 months due to application issues

AVD Readiness Services

To enable employees with access anywhere on any device, assessing the environment’s readiness for AVD is critical.
  • Readiness Audit

    • Audit and rationalise application estate
    • Scope a new AVD environment: identify application candidates, device clients, image types, networking considerations
    • Provide a clear migration transition path with project timescales, cloud adoption and costs
The Readiness Audit provides the insight on what collaboration and productivity applications employees need on their Azure Virtual Desktop, as well as scoping how to make it both scalable and secure. It prepares the best post user experience by defining user groups, autoscale thresholds, validating design and planning builds for deployment.
