Capgemini, one of the world's largest management
consulting, outsourcing and professional services companies, is an Oracle
Secure Global Desktop customer and uses it to provide secure, remote access to 1)
corporate applications centralized in the datacenter and 2) desktops hosted on Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.
Earlier this month, one of Capgemini's government
customers in Holland were advised to avoid traveling to work, due to a heavy
snowstorm. This resulted in a lot of employees working from home. Thankfully
due to their deployment of the Oracle Secure Global Desktop gateway, employees
were able to easily access their corporate applications and desktops from home
and anywhere outside of their office. Capgemini reports that during the days of
the snowstorm, a record number of users leveraged Oracle Secure Global Desktop
(servers and gateway). Despite this record usage, Oracle Secure Global Desktop
remained perfectly stable and allowed users to seamlessly access their
applications and desktops.
This is a great example of how Oracle Secure Global
Desktop allows employee productivity and business continuity even during
severe weather conditions such as snowstorms. We are delighted to have enabled business continuity for Capgemini's customers, and look forward
to our continued relationship with Capgemini.
