1E WakeUp™ and Nomad Enterprise software used by Microsoft for added Windows Management capabilities
Company Deploys 1E NightWatchman to Reduce PC Power Consumption
Barcelona, Spain, Nov. 6th, 2008 – 1E, a leading provider of Windows® management software and services, today announced at the Tech‐Ed EMEA 2008 conference that Microsoft® has signed an agreement to license 1E WakeUp 5.5 and Nomad Enterprise across more than 200,000 desktops PCs used within Microsoft.
1E Nomad Enterprise reduces the number of servers required for branch offices and low bandwidth locations as well as providing advanced internet management capabilities for the desktop and mobile client estate. PC availability and reliability is also critical to employees as unmanaged PCs are an expensive problem. It therefore pays to ensure management clients remain operational and 1E WakeUp solves this challenge. 1E WakeUp's Computer Health functionality periodically runs tests and applies fixes designed to improve availability, reliability and performance as tests can be tailored to match desktop build and applications. 1E WakeUp groups problem machines and if configured to do so, automatically starts a repair.
Sumir Karayi, CEO of 1E remarked, "1E and Microsoft have been working together for over a decade to deliver solutions to our mutual customers that reduce the cost of managing Windows environments. We are delighted to continue building our strong partnership with Microsoft and throughout this project have worked collaboratively together, to further improve Computer Health functionality provided through our 1E WakeUp 5.5 solution. The addition of Nomad Enterprise will enable Microsoft to reduce the number of servers across their organization and better manage their clients over the internet in a highly cost‐effective manner."
