The job of a 20-person IT team supporting 1,000 government employees gets more difficult when the County begins considering a major software upgrade. That’s what IT staff experienced in Hamilton County, located just north of Indianapolis. When Hamilton County had to upgrade to Microsoft Windows 7 and Office 2010, IT staff knew many of its PCs weren’t powerful enough to run them, so they looked to VMware and Unidesk solutions for help. In combination, VMware® Horizon View™, Unidesk, Dell storage and servers, and zero clients are enabling Hamilton County to achieve all of its desktop virtualization goals—from improved IT staff efficiency and enhanced workforce mobility to greater security and resiliency from desktop failure and disaster. The solution has increased IT agility by reducing provisioning times from hours to minutes, and improved anytime, anywhere employee access to data, applications, and desktops for all county employees.
“Desktop virtualization would allow us to reuse these PCs and extend their life. Plus, our public offices could introduce initiatives or application requirements at any time. Virtual desktops would give us a faster, easier way to respond to these requests while maintaining the high standards of security and service we are known for in our county.”
