Lloyds Banking Group is to roll out the Microsoft Managed Desktop across its entire business, making it the world's largest financial firm to put the technology into production.
As part of the LBG’s commitment to invest £3 billion in technology, the new service will offer a suite of productivity tools within Office 365 for all Lloyds Banking Group employees.
The bank has been working for two years on plans to introduce the digital office programme. The effort has been supplemented by use of Microsoft's cloud platform to increase business agility, provide on-demand scalability and improve operational resilience across the Group.
John Chambers, group CIO at Lloyds, says: “As part of our digital transformation we’re creating a modern digital workplace. A core principle of Microsoft Managed Desktop is the idea that an evolved approach can give colleagues fantastic experiences on workplace devices that stay current and secure with Microsoft 365. We are confident that prioritising a modern and enjoyable workspace will significantly improve our colleague experience.”
