A leading Europe-based media and digital company implements Wipro virtuadesk™, a complete desktop virtualization solution in 3 months, leading to 25% cost savings and digital transformation
Client: A leading media group
Area of operation: Europe
Services: Publishing, distribution
Number of employees: Over 15,000
The media group had multiple datacentres spread across Europe managed by Citrix farms of multiple versions. This led to poor IT management and lack of a centralized view. A complex legacy environment based on Windows 2003 server, which was being decommissioned and going out of support from Microsoft, led to stability, performance, agility and scalability issues. The client wanted to migrate multiple Citrix farms to a central location in a period of 3 months.
Wipro implemented Wipro virtuadesk™, a complete desktop virtualization solution built on Cisco UCS servers, software defined storage based on Datacore and virtualization platform based on Citrix.
Wipro virtuadesk™ enabled the media group to build a collaborative and mobile workforce by securing, provisioning, and sharing applications and data. Wipro’s pre-architected solution, designed for fast and secure implementation, eliminated architecture and design phase, and minimized risk. The hyper-converged appliance was factory assembled and shipped to the datacentre. Deployment and provisioning automation built by Wipro helped implement the solution within 3 months.
“Through our proactive approach, we managed to deliver the new platform to the client ahead of schedule. The success of our solution was due to close collaboration with partners like Cisco and Microsoft. Our workplace transformation solution, built on Cisco’s industry leading UCS servers, helped deliver high performance VDI to business users with up to 25% cost savings.”
