The Council faced the challenges of:

  • Upgrading their desktop estate from Windows© XP to a fully-supported operating system
  • Migration of around 650 desktops across multiple office locations
  • Needing to update as many of their core systems as possible
  • Reduce overall complexity of their desktop estate
  • Replace mis-matched and aged hardware
  • Needing to explore VDI options


NMC chose SysGroup to deliver an initial needs assessment and were put in charge of the full migration of the desktop estate. Their solution included:

  • The VMware Horizon Suite desktop offerings, including View, Workspace, Mirage, vShield and ThinApp
  • Full end-user experience
  • High-performing SAN solution using the Nimble Storage Array


We were impressed with SysGroup’s thorough understanding of the requirements, the quality of the proposed design and the in-depth technical knowledge of their project management team. Faster log-in times, increased performance and greater stability of the user devices is already being documented.
