Tube Lines: Tube Lines Cuts Costs and Complexity with Standardised Enterprise Environment
Tube Lines, owned by Transport for London, equips its employees with the latest technology to lower costs and complexity. By investing in a standardised environment with key Microsoft technologies, Tube Lines can upgrade and deploy all Microsoft products within 12 months from release. With its recent move to the Wave "14" stack, it has saved hundreds of thousands of pounds and countless person hours. The refresh included a range of Microsoft security and systems management products, as well as unified communications and collaboration software. Using standard Microsoft technologies has contributed towards a reduced IT operating cost of more than 70 per cent in the past five years. By using the standardised approach with a simplified environment, Tube Lines is well placed to upgrade to Wave "15" technologies.
