Executive Summary

Mercy Health Partners - Southwest Ohio is an integrated network of healthcare organizations serving the greater Cincinnati, Ohio, area. The IT staff, which supports more than 300 applications used by 7,300 employees, was challenged by application conflicts and packaging problems that elongated software deployment and resulted in increased spending on the terminal services environment. By using Microsoft Application Virtualization, Mercy eliminated the need to package applications separately for its desktop computers and server computers, simplifying and speeding application deployment. It can run more applications on its desktop computers, reducing server hardware by 50 percent and saving U.S.$350,000 that would have been spent on new server computers.
