Somerset School District

 

K-12 education has changed dramatically in recent years. According to Sara Eichten, principal at Somerset Middle School in Wisconsin, “The Common Core State Standards have drastically changed what we need to be doing with our students in both English language arts and mathematics, as well as focusing on disciplinary literacy in science, social studies, and other related arts classes.” So in May 2013 when Somerset School District was selected to participate in a pilot program to test the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) platform to meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, it looked to VMware for help. VMware Horizon View helped ease the deployment of the rigorous testing platform and deliver a seamless user experience to students.

"With VMware Horizon View, we didn’t experience any technical issues when we did the [Smarter Balanced] pilot. People were concerned about audio sound quality, videos, mouse movements—those things that are critical in high-stakes testing—but we saw no performance issues whatsoever in our environment. The virtual environment performed the way we expected it to, and we’re very happy with the results.”

— Ryan Sicard, Director of IT, Somerset School District

SSOE Group

 

SSOE Group is an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management firm with 1200 employees located in 29 offices across 7 countries. SSOE leverages the best talent that they have to complete client projects no matter where that talent is located and this requires global collaboration in a 3D environment. SSOE selected a solution utilizing VMware Horizon View, Cisco, and NVIDIA to deliver the 3D graphics performance required from applications such as Autodesk Revit to complete projects in a virtualized desktop environment.

"I’d absolutely recommend the Cisco Invidia VMware Horizon View solution to other companies who are using graphically intensive applications. It's the best of all possible worlds. With Cisco you're getting the hardware, reliability, performance, price point. With Invidia, the graphics acceleration, simply unmatched in a solution like this. And obviously VMware Horizon View is producing the capability for me to get a global work force collaborating in one location, using disparate people from anywhere."

— Bill Case, Director of Computer & Information Systems, SSOE Group

SSOE Group

 

Collaboration with talent around the world is one of SSOE Group’s central business models.

St Edmund’s College

 

St Edmund’s College needed to increase the efficiency and reliability of its IT estate, while enabling a new BYOD solution for pupils and teachers within the school. Using VMware software, the school has virtualized 95% of its servers and 70% of its desktop PCs, providing a new, central platform for managing IT.

“We’re really excited by what VMware’s technology has brought to St Edmund’s College. By giving pupils the opportunity to use their own devices, the children have become much more engaged within lessons and are able to experience new ways of working. Being able to access the school network from home or within the boarding houses is also allowing them to become more efficient and independent learners. Alongside this, we’ve also seen some significant cost and environmental savings for the school through increased energy efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.”

— Paulo Durán, Headmaster, St Edmund’s College

STV Engineering

 

STV Engineering uses VMware Horizon along with NVIDIA GRID technology to deliver high performance 3D graphics performance to its workers. They use desktop virtualization to comply with their security policy when dealing with external workers and also use desktop virtualization in case workers are unable to come to the office due to a natural disaster such as what they experienced with Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

"Like many organization we have security concerns and compliance concerns we need to abide by. VDI allowed us to bring the data to one central location housed within STV, so we could provide access to external stakeholders. No matter where the client was, we knew where the data would be."

— Matt Dierolf, Manager Network Systems, STV

Sydney Adventist Hospital

 

Sydney Adventist Hospital is the largest single-campus private hospital in New South Wales.

By deploying systems based on VMware Horizon View, the hospital has streamlined patient care and boosted the productivity and performance of its medical practitioners. In only two months, this leading Sydney specialist hospital transformed its processes from paper-based to paperless. In this case study and videos, a range of people, from the Head of IS to clinicians, talk about how VMware’s solutions have revolutionised the way the hospital runs. The benefits of access anywhere on any device became rapidly clear to everyone, and now the staff have full access to all patient data concurrently, and from any location and device.
