Siemens Energy Chooses Workspot and Google Cloud for Global VDI Transformation

The partnership between Workspot and Google Cloud provides Siemens with the tools to undertake its critical shift away from complex and burdensome legacy solutions to cloud-native and modernized VDI.

January 17, 2023—CAMPBELL—Workspot, the Enterprise VDI platform built for the multi-cloud and hybrid era, announced today that Siemens Energy has selected Workspot and Google Cloud to revolutionize its virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

“After a thorough assessment process, Siemens Energy selected Workspot to meet our unique and complex global, hybrid virtual desktop and application requirements,” said Wolfgang Schubert, VP of Digital Transformation at Siemens Energy. “Leveraging Workspot and Google Cloud enables us to modernize our previous VDI deployments, streamline our operations, and reduce costs. We are looking forward now to a successful deployment across our organization.”

Siemens Energy operates in over 90 countries and employs around 94,000 individuals worldwide. Given such a vast and diverse workforce, the company needed an efficient, scalable, and cost-effective solution to support their employees’ varying VDI needs across the globe. Siemens Energy also has complex workloads that require a hybrid on-premises/remote deployment, where network latencies favor locating virtual desktop applications closer to users.

Siemens Energy selected Workspot for its ability to vastly simplify the management of global VDI, particularly as the company takes back operational control of its VDI from its former SI-managed hosting partner. For processing-intensive and graphics-rich tasks like CAD and high-performance computing (HPC), GPU support is essential, and Workspot on Google Cloud seamlessly provides that for a widely distributed workforce.

“As a premier, globally recognized leader in providing energy services on a broad geographical scale, Siemens Energy chose Workspot for the unparalleled levels of flexibility, security, availability, and ease of management and operations in delivering vital virtual desktops and apps to their widely distributed global workforce,” said Brad Tompkins, President and COO at Workspot. “By embracing a hybrid multi-cloud approach with Workspot’s unique, modern cloud-native VDI technology, Siemens Energy has positioned themselves for both uninterrupted end-user productivity and efficient, cost-effective IT operations.”

Workspot played a crucial role in Siemens Energy’s transition from legacy VDI to its modern VDI platform. It has already provided strong total cost of ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI) projections, introduced stakeholders to the solution, and managed the technical evaluation process.

The Workspot platform also offers ease of deployment and advanced performance management tools, such as Workspot Watch and Workspot Trends, to keep the IT team constantly apprised of user satisfaction and cloud infrastructure performance data. This in turn enables Siemens Energy to keep their vast VDI environment constantly tuned for both end-user satisfaction as well as for cost optimization.
