KBC and the WSS journey

This exclusive case study shows how KBC used 1E’s Windows Servicing Suite (WSS) to address their OS migration, patch compliance, and software distribution challenges.

Challenge

With over 1,500 branches across Belgium, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Ireland, KBC manages a broad and disparate IT estate. Effective management is not only necessary but mandatory with such a mixed collection of endpoints. Their goal was to eliminate servers and get streamlined connections to each branch.

Solution

Windows Servicing Suite (WSS) was used to address their patch compliance and software distribution challenges.

Benefits

“By building on our Configuration Manager installation, we were able to replace our previous systems and remove all our DP servers (including 830 in Belgium and 300 in the Czech Republic),” explains Jan Srb (System Engineer). That quickly reduced their server licensing and maintenance costs. They’ve also seen a significant drop in complaints from their network management team, as Nomad manages network traffic to use the maximum available bandwidth without impacting business traffic across the WAN.
