A DaaS solution for Mergers & Acquisitions

When a merger or an acquisition (M&A) is announced, the close period to transfer of business is short, with aggressive timelines that require massive and diligent project planning. 

One key project that must be done quickly, is onboarding the new employees (acquirees) into the parent (acquiror) company’s systems. Existing laptops from the acquiree seldom meet the parent company’s standards and instead of remediating them, they choose to allocate new laptops complete with the acquiring company’s desktop images. This process can be very expensive due to the cost of sourcing, configuring and shipping laptops, risks of laptop theft, and lost capital costs in the original laptops with the aquiree.

Using Tehama’s secure Desktop as a Service platform, the parent organization can set up a custom desktop image complete with all the productivity tools, applications, virus and intrusion detection software in compliance with the parent organization’s desktop policy and guidance. The virtual desktops can be configured and provisioned for each user in minutes.

Once the desktop is provisioned, the new employee (acquiree) simply logs into Tehama via their company device, launches their new virtual workspace and immediately lands into their new desktop with all the tools and applications they need to connect to and work within the parent company’s organization.

Tehama helps you onboard new employees quickly, securely, and with neither the cost nor time needed for deploying new images on new laptops.
