SCC signs with Centrix Software to deliver next generation application services

Leading technology solutions provider will use Centrix WorkSpace™ to optimise desktop migration, software deployment and transformation projects, and identify IT cost saving opportunities for customers
Feb. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Newbury, UK: 8th February 2012 – Centrix Software, a leader in workspace computing solutions, today announced that SCC has joined its partner network in the UK. Under the partnership, the leading solutions provider’s desktop and software asset management teams will use Centrix WorkSpace to analyse end-user computing environments for optimisation and cost reduction opportunities, and as a decision-support solution for strategic desktop transformation projects.

Incorporating Centrix WorkSpace iQ, an advanced analytics solution, Centrix WorkSpace delivers rich analysis on end-user computing environments, and details how software and desktop assets are used and consumed. The information it provides enables organisations to optimise the design and deployment of application and desktop infrastructure based on user and organisational requirements, reduce overprovisioning costs and manage the introduction of new technology platforms such as virtual desktops and Windows 7.  

“We chose to work with Centrix Software due to the power of its WorkSpace iQ solution. It provides unparalleled usage details and insight across end-user computing estates, enabling technology decisions to be made quickly based upon the unique requirements of individual customers,” commented Rhys Sharp, CTO at SCC. “Using WorkSpace iQ across our services, licencing and software asset teams, we will be able to identify significant cost savings for our customers. We already have a strong pipeline of tens of thousands of users that we’ll be analysing with WorkSpace iQ to highlight where they have opportunities to further optimise their environments and reduce costs.”

Centrix WorkSpace provides enterprises with the ability to track and manage application and service demand across their business, as well as deliver unified workspaces that aggregate the delivery of local, virtual, cloud-based and web applications and content. Using Centrix WorkSpace, organisations can:

• Build the business case for new technology investments, such as virtualisation.

• Reduce the time needed to deploy new application and desktop platforms.

• Manage the growing diversity of applications and devices – from the licensing of installed productivity applications to the use of cloud services, ‘Bring Your Own Device’ schemes and enterprise tablets.

“Having partners of the calibre of SCC joining our programme is testament to the requirement in the market for our WorkSpace solutions,” said Lewis Gee, senior vice president of EMEA sales and marketing at Centrix Software. “We’re focused on helping infrastructure teams address two key concerns – how to ensure technology investments deliver business value and that the right technology choices are made. With WorkSpace, our partners can help customers make those decisions faster, based on detailed analysis of how they use and consume technologies and with clear business case justification.”
