Borroughs Corporation is a steel-shelving manufacturer. Its two-person IT department plays a valuable role by ensuring that the IT infrastructure can support operations, and has made significant efficiency improvements by virtualizing part of its server environment with Windows Server 2008 R2 and its built-in Hyper-V technology. To further streamline IT management and automate manual processes, including client updates and asset management, Borroughs implemented Microsoft System Center Essentials 2010, which offers a single management tool to help the company proactively manage its client computers and physical and virtual servers. As a result of the solution, the company simplified IT management, improved its IT health with better control of its environment, and reduced downtime, which enables the IT department to reduce costs and focus on more strategic tasks.
