Is your business armed to survive the digital transformation? | HDUK

Whether it is reducing our carbon footprint, reaching new and more varied audiences or enabling our workforces to work faster and smarter, nobody would dispute that the internet has had a dramatic impact on the business world over the past twenty years.

Millennials (born between 1980 and 1994) in most parts of the globe will never experience a world without connectivity and mobile devices. For most of us, it is impossible to imagine life before Google, Amazon, Apple or Facebook.

According to The Next Web, more than 4.5 billion people now use the internet, while social media users have passed the 3.8 billion mark. Nearly 60 percent of the world’s population is already online, and the latest trends suggest that more than half of the world’s total population will use social media by the middle of this year. The average internet user now spends 6 hours 43 minutes online each day – if we allow roughly 8 hours a day for sleep, that means we currently spend more than 40% of our waking lives using the internet.

The future of business is undoubtedly digital, and here is our top toolkit for evolving your business to survive, and thrive in, the digital transformation.

Hosted Desktop

Enable remote working with constant access to all your data and applications, safe in the knowledge that your files are secure and backed up by using a remote desktop.

For the end-user the experience of using a hosted desktop with HDUK is identical to that of a desktop PC – it looks, feels and behaves exactly the same. Your virtual desktop appears as if it was running locally on your machine and is delivered to you in exactly the same way regardless of where you are working, whether this is in the office on a PC or Mac, at home on a laptop or tablet or on the move with a smartphone.

Remote Managed IT Services

Experience less downtime with dedicated 24/7 remote managed services for your team. Our fixed pricing will give you peace of mind and with outsourcing your everyday IT to us, it will free up extra time to work on projects that drive your business forward.

Remote Managed IT Services allow all your company’s employees to do their job effectively by having 24/7 IT support. In turn, this leaves your own IT team with the capacity to work on profit-generating projects for your business.


Hosting your voice and conferencing in the cloud will open your business to a whole new world of possibilities.

To remain competitive, companies need to ensure they have the tools to communicate with their clients. Voice is no longer the default and the need to provide customers with several ways to engage is more important now than ever before. Whether by chat, voice or video, companies can improve engagement by the use of multiple channels to enhance customer service and speed of response.
Communication has evolved, leaving many organisations with tools from several vendors – Skype for internal calls, WebEx for conferences, WhatsApp for a chat etc.

Employees are spending time switching between tools or waiting for a response, and businesses are paying for apps that are underutilised. UCaaS provides an integrated approach that links these channels into a single solution and provides additional collaboration tools, such as document and screen sharing.

Cloud Adoption

At HDUK, we have been helping businesses to move to the cloud for more than ten years. Through our years of experience both using and installing cloud hosted applications, we have seen and heard it all. You can read our recent blog where we address the most common misconceptions about the cloud, here.

Having your business applications hosted with a cloud-hosted solution gives you the ability to meet the potential growth of your business with seamless upgrades, eliminating the costs associated with traditional client-server software upgrades.

Business Grade Connectivity

Keep your business connected with fully-managed Connectivity services, providing your business with the performance, availability, and security necessary for your voice, video, and cloud-based applications.

Today, businesses are expected to respond quickly, and effectively to any customer request. Businesses need to ensure that they have a reliable connectivity infrastructure with the performance, availability, and security needed to accommodate the multitude of online tools necessary for them not only to enhance customer service but to be operational.

For this they need highly available internet access, high levels of security to protect against cyber threats and visibility of application performance. All these requirements can be met with HDUK’s Connectivity solutions, which offer access services and advanced data services to suit a wide range of business situations.
