Dimension Data Announces Award-Winning Deployment Solution for Simplified Enterprise Desktop Management
Allows the Update and Management of Thousands of Systems per Day
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Sept. 12 / -- Dimension Data, a leading IT solutions and services provider, today announced the availability of the Dimension Data Dynamic Desktop Deployment Solution, an extension of Microsoft's management tools, designed to automate the task of upgrading and maintaining an enterprise's personal computers. Once in place, thousands of desktops can be deployed per day without a technician ever touching the desktop. Dimension Data recently was named Technology Innovation Partner of the Year -- Advanced Infrastructure Solutions -- for the Dynamic Desktop Deployment Solution at Microsoft's 2006 Global Partner of the Year Awards. At this same event, Dimension Data also received a Microsoft Global Customer Award for implementing this solution at AUSTAR, a leading subscription television provider in Australia.
"Early customer feedback and Microsoft's global recognition of our work demonstrate a growing need for innovative desktop deployment technology that reduces the cost, complexity and manpower associated with upgrading and maintaining an organization's desktop systems," said Jere Brown, CEO, Dimension Data North America.
Large enterprises are home to tens of thousands of desktop and laptop computers. Ensuring that each one is configured with an organization's Standard Operating Environment (SOE) -- the operating system, applications, utilities and patches -- can be an overwhelming task. It is further complicated by the fact that most organizations maintain multiple SOEs for different departments, divisions and job functions.
"Dimension Data demonstrated technology innovation excellence with their Dynamic Desktop Deployment Solution. The combination of their technology innovation with a passionate commitment to client satisfaction placed Dimension Data as leaders in this category. When partnering with Dimension Data, Microsoft is consistently impressed by their consultants' professionalism, commitment and deep understanding of Microsoft infrastructure technology," said Mark Hill, Microsoft Worldwide General Manager of Sales Excellence.
