Energy Company's Mobile Work Force Gains Better Access to Messaging Information
Medco Energi Internasional (MedcoEnergi), a global energy company, wanted to improve communications for its mobile work force. Employees traveled frequently to remote locations, and relied on e-mail to collaborate. However, an e-mail outage could stall communications for hours. To avoid downtime and improve access to information, MedcoEnergi is deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and integrating it with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2. By creating a Database Availability Group, it can increase uptime and restore service within seconds instead of hours. Employees have improved Web-based access to multiple communications tools, and they can find and organize information more efficiently. In addition, MedcoEnergi expects to cut costs by consolidating server hardware and taking advantage of built-in communications capabilities.
