Cloud virtual desktop strategy

Journaling Success: Managing over $25 billion in assets, one of Canada’s leading direct banking companies looked to another leader – Long View Systems, to establish and build-out their cloud virtual desktop strategy.


Often, we tend to see the results of an initiative without knowing or understanding the journey that leads to its successful outcome. In providing an unprecedented insider’s view into what it takes to develop and implement a Windows Virtual Desktop strategy, the progressing and highly successful transformation of a multi-billion-dollar financial service company’s desktop infrastructure is more than a testimonial. We provided them with a true partnership to build a dynamic, agile, and innovative cloud desktop architecture to serve the needs of the organization today and well into the future.

As one of the country’s direct-bank financial services companies, establishing and building out its own cloud desktop strategy required both expertise and leadership. Given the complexity of this significant undertaking, this financial industry leader turned to Long View to provide the leadership and direction to effectively build from the ground up the critical pieces of a cloud desktop infrastructure.

In developing the blueprint for the company’s cloud desktop, Long View went through a series of strategic progressions, starting with a proof-of-technology using specific use cases in Microsoft’s public cloud.
