China Vanke: Property Firm Boosts Efficiency, Security in Branch Offices With Agile Operating System
With branch offices located in 40 cities across the country, China Vanke needed an IT solution that would support its ever-increasing mobile work force. Remote employees encountered productivity delays due to network bandwidth issues and the IT team found it difficult to manage 4,000 PCs without a centralized solution. In 2009, the company became an early adopter of Windows 7 Enterprise and deployed the operating system - along with the Windows Internet Explorer 8 Internet browser - to 400 PCs across the real estate division. The IT team reports tightened security and simplified IT administration, thanks to enhanced Group Policy objects. The company plans to complete deployment to all 4,000 PCs by 2013.
