Liquidware Labs et FlexVirtual appuient la migration Windows de Hanze UAS

- Le partenaire Acceler8 de Liquidware au Benelux permet au client de tirer parti de ProfileUnity en vue de l'automatisation de la mise à niveau de Windows XP vers Windows 7.

CHICAGO, le 14 mars 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquidware Labs a annoncé aujourd'hui que l'Université des Sciences Appliquées Hanze de Groningen (Hanze UAS) située aux Pays-Bas, avait recouru à sa solution ProfileUnity afin de procéder à la migration réussie d'environ 4 500 postes gérés, couvrant l'administration de l'université, la faculté et les étudiants réguliers à temps plein. Hanze UAS a travaillé aux côtés du partenaire Acceler8 de Liquidware Labs, FlexVirtual, afin d'appuyer ce projet. Découvrez l'ensemble de la success story des clients sur la page Web dédiée aux clients de Liquidware Labs.

« Le personnel informatique de Hanze UAS entend collaborer avec ses partenaires, plutôt que de se contenter d'en obtenir les services, » a déclaré Alex Pelster, directeur chez FlexVirtual. « Ce personnel est désireux d'approfondir ses connaissances techniques, ce qui se révèle un atout constant dans la réussite de notre relation. Chez FlexVirtual, notre philosophie consiste à promouvoir l'autonomie nos clients. Nous entendons enrichir leurs connaissances et leur expérience en parallèle de l'aide que nous leur fournissons dans le déploiement d'une solution. »

Le personnel informatique de Hanze UAS était conscient que les applications utilisées par les employés et les étudiants nécessitaient une migration vers Windows 7, compte tenu notamment de la suppression du support Windows XP en avril 2014. C'est pourquoi le personnel informatique d'Hanze UAS a prévu une migration de Windows XP vers Windows 7, maintenant les utilisateurs de PC physiques sur la lancée de l'agenda consistant à terme à faire migrer les utilisateurs vers une plateforme virtuelle.

« Nous avons rapidement compris qu'indépendamment de la manière dont nous procédions à la virtualisation de nos postes, notre objectif le plus immédiat consistait à faire évoluer les utilisateurs de Windows XP vers Windows 7 dans les plus brefs délais, » a déclaré Henk Weisbeek, qui a dirigé le projet de transformation des postes de l'Université Hanze.

Pour autant, selon Weisbeek, si la planification de cette migration était une chose, son accomplissement dans les délais et de manière structurée en était une autre. Le personnel informatique de Hanze a rapidement réalisé qu'il ne serait pas chose facile de faire migrer plusieurs milliers d'utilisateurs vers Windows 7 sans une solution spécialisée d'automatisation de ce processus. Le principal obstacle à une transition en douceur résidait dans le fait que Windows XP utilisait un profil « version 1, » tandis que Windows 7 se basait sur un profil « version 2. »

« ProfileUnity nous a d'ores et déjà permis de surmonter les limites associées aux difficultés autour de ces profils, et nous a aidé à procéder à la transition vers Windows 7, autant d'étapes pour nous cruciales dans l'amélioration de notre mode de délivrance des postes de travail, ainsi que dans le maintien d'Hanze UAS au premier plan des standards d'éducation à l'international, » a déclaré Weisbeek. La mission centrale de l'Université consiste à garantir le développement professionnel des étudiants jusqu'à leur permettre d'atteindre les plus hauts niveaux, en les équipant en vue d'une carrière immédiate à l'issue de leur obtention d'un diplôme. Le calibre et la qualité des postes informatiques sur lesquels nos étudiants apprennent constituent un aspect essentiel pour leur permettre de répondre aux défis associés à leur profession.

« FlexVirtual incarne ce genre de partenaires que recherche Liquidware Labs, » a déclaré Chris Akerberg, président et directeur d'exploitation chez Liquidware Labs. « Leurs équipes s'efforcent de développer une expertise dans la virtualisation des postes ainsi que dans nos solutions, de sorte qu'elles offrent le meilleur résultat possible à leurs clients. Les projets de transformation des postes peuvent se révéler complexes et couteux à défaut de recommandations de la part d'experts. Lorsqu'un partenaire tel que FlexVirtual entre en jeu pour faciliter avec précision et soin la gestion de cette transition, cela fait toute la différence pour les clients en termes de délais et de budgets, tout en établissant la confiance nécessaire pour aller de l'avant. »

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
