With a longstanding history in Sweden, Handelsbanken is quickly establishing a presence across Europe. The bank's continued growth has resulted in a need to deploy more servers to support various business functions. To improve the efficiency of its six-person IT management staff and avoid the need to hire more people, Handelsbanken decided to upgrade to Microsoft System Center 2012 data center solutions. The IT staff can now monitor the bank's Windows-based servers more efficiently, orchestrate and automate server maintenance processes, and automate software configuration and deployment. Improved efficiency means that Handelsbanken can manage its 2,000 servers and 12,000 client devices while helping to keep costs down as the business grows.
