COMMERCIAL IN CONFIDENCE 6 Re-planning The transition of DWPs Desktop Services from Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services (HPES) to Fujitsu will complete later than the originally planned date of September 2010. We have made good progress to date and expect to complete Transition either late 2010 or early 2011. The Departments priority is to deliver the benefits of Fujitsus transformed Desktop Services solution (i.e. a predominantly Thin Client solution) with no disruption to service to its customers and staff. This requires some flexibility in the handover of the Desktop Service between the two suppliers (HPES and Fujitsu). The additional time is required to ensure the smooth and seamless transition from HPES to Fujitsu. All the organisations involved continue to work closely together to achieve this.
