Energy Producer Fuels Productivity, Mobility With Robust Operating System
With six thermoelectric and three hydroelectric power plants, Edipower is one of the largest energy producers in Italy. The company generates 7 percent of the national demand, with a throughput of 24 billion kilowatts in 2008. To maintain its competitive advantage, Edipower needed to upgrade its enterprisewide IT environment. With the help of Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Microsys, the company deployed the Windows 7 Enterprise operating system. Edipower uses Windows 7 - in conjunction with Microsoft Application Virtualization technology and the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system - to improve mobility, boost productivity, enhance security, and contain costs.
