Executive Summary

The world's leading manufacturer of sheet-fed offset printing press systems, Heidelberg relies on thousands of personal computers to help its employees to work as productively as possible in a highly competitive industry. As part of a companywide initiative to unify, manage, and regularly update the personal computer environment, Heidelberg wanted to ease a planned migration to the Windows Vista operating system, manage computers more efficiently, and reduce the cost and time associated with application delivery and management. The company deployed Microsoft Application Virtualization to deliver applications as services and manage personal computer environments throughout the enterprise. Using the new technology, Heidelberg reduced application packaging time more than 50 percent, realized a 40 percent cost savings, empowered its IT staff, and accelerated application repair processes.
