The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of the Republic of Croatia is responsible for international promotion of Croatia as a modern, dynamic, and democratic Mediterranean and Central European country. Its IT staff, which oversees 80 branch offices around the world, needed an easy-to-manage infrastructure with high security standards. It also wanted to give users a first-class PC experience. Working with Microsoft Services, the ministry created a world-class data center that takes advantage of virtualization and central control through Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007, which it is using to deploy Windows 7 Enterprise to the organization's 1,000 PCs. The ministry expects to benefit from having an optimized security infrastructure, greater manageability, and increased employee productivity.
