How will user requirements be gathered?

Each department will be asked to nominate a local contact, who will arrange for users to complete a requirements form. We will use this to ensure the applications you require are available to you via Apps on Demand, and we have taken any special requirements into consideration.

The rollout of the Managed Desktop is currently being piloted within ICS. Once we have completed the pilot, and have implemented any feedback, we will be rolling out to the rest of the University. If you are interested in using the Desktop please log a call at
