1E and Schneider Electric: Automating a global Windows 10 migration

Read More

Software distribution and upgrades used to be a major pain point for Schneider Electric. Perhaps this is unsurprising since the company is a leading multinational organization with over 120,000 computer users in over 100 countries.

Challenge

To prepare for Windows 10, Schneider had to upgrade to Configuration Manager 2012. They did so with the support of Nomad which subsequently helped them keep up with CM Current Branches more easily. In addition, Schneider also required a Windows 10 compatibility tool for end users.

Solution

Following the successful migration to Configuration Manager 2012, 1E Product Services coordinated with Schneider to develop a Self-evaluation portal able to report application compatibility for end users.

Benefits

“Nomad integration allowed us to remove approximately 400 distribution points,” says Program Manager Michal Lackovic. “This meant our infrastructure required less support and complexity was reduced by 90%.” By decommissioning these servers, Schneider Electric estimates that Nomad has saved them up to €100,000 per year in maintenance costs, as well as any potential related license costs. In addition, their self-service Windows 10 compatibility portal enabled it to complete the subsequent Windows migration with minimal user disruption.

“We needed a complementary, automated way to accelerate our Windows 10 migration. That’s where Nomad came into the picture.”
