Kent County Council is able to rapidly accelerate the migration of its 4,000 devices away from Microsoft XP - saving over £560,000 in the process and causing minimal disruption to staff. Their challenges are to improve mobility, working flexibility, information security and business agility, migrating away from its aging Windows XP desktop estate to provide a more modern working environment and reducing IT management costs. They chose VMware to overcome these challenges. They implemented VMware Horizon Suite to accelerate XP migration, reduce IT management time and cost and introduce more efficient ways of working. The results of implementing VMware were delivered a flexible working environment for staff and Kent expects IT operational costs to reduce by around one third; freeing up time for IT staff.
