Wien ist Schönbrunn und Riesenrad, Kunst und Musik, Kaffeehaus und Heuriger und Vieles mehr, aber all das genügt nicht, um touristisch erfolgreich zu sein. Dass alle Welt – von Freizeitgästen bis zu Kongress-Teilnehmern – diese Stadt so zahlreich besucht, ist auch einem effizienten Destinationsmarketing zu verdanken. Der WienTourismus als dafür verantwortliche Tourismusorganisation braucht dazu mobile Mitarbeiter, und diese verlangen von der IT gute Betreuung und mobilen Zugriff auf ihre Daten. Daher setzt das IT-Team des WienTourismus schon viele Jahre auf Virtualisierungslösungen von VMware. Jüngster Schritt war die Desktop-Virtualisierung mit VMware View.
„Der Herausforderung, für uns eine zufrie¬denstellende Lösung zu finden und umzusetzen, stellten sich sowohl die Mitarbeiter von VMware als auch jene von Fujitsu mit großem Engagement. Das äußerte sich auch durch eine hohe Erreichbarkeit bei Fragen und Schwierigkeiten und eine rasche Reaktion darauf. Auf die Einhaltung der Budget¬vorgaben wurde sehr geachtet, was im Haus für positive Stimmung gegenüber dem Projekt sorgte.“
Herausforderung: Flexible, on-Demand abrechenbare Cloud-Lösung für anspruchsvolle Kunden Lösung; fle.Cs als vCloud Powered Lösung; Resultate: Individuelle Cloud-Lösungen in modernen und energieeffizienten Rechenzentren, attraktive Angebote für Kunden verschiedener Branchen aus Industrie und Dienstleistung, transparente automatisierte Abrechnung, hoher Automatisierungsgrad im RZ-Betrieb, Kostenreduktion bei Budget und laufenden Kosten, schnelle, flexible Reaktion auf neue Anforderungen, Senkung der CO2-Bilanz der Kunden
„Das VSPP-Modell von VMware ist das einzige Konzept, mit dem wir unsere Philosophie individueller, hoch flexibler Cloud- Angebote umsetzen können. Die Integration von Infrastruktur- und Managementkomponenten ist bei keinem anderen Anbieter auf dem Markt zu finden.” „Die Spezialisten von VMware Professional Services haben mit ihrem extrem hohen Sach-Know-how, auch hier vor Ort in Deutschland, schnellen Reaktionszeiten und unbürokratischer Hilfe ganz wesentlich dazu beigetragen, dass wir unser Angebot in so kurzer Zeit entwickeln konnten. Support auf diesem Level ist keine Selbstverständlichkeit.”
