Partnership Brings Faster and More Cost-Effective SCCM Deployments to cellent Customers
BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Adaptiva, a leading provider of add-ins for Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), and cellent, a large German SAP consulting firm and provider of Microsoft-based infrastructure services, today announced a partnership providing Adaptiva’s OneSite solution to cellent’s Infrastructure Solutions division clients. cellent will present Adaptiva’s OneSite solution to all clients who are implementing Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2012.
The partnership reduces infrastructure costs for cellent’s clients by removing the need to place servers in every operating location. This can provide immediate ROI of millions of euros in hardware cost alone, and significantly shrink deployment timelines. OneSite also enables businesses to deliver terabytes of data over the existing global WAN during business hours without creating network congestion, latency, problems, or tickets.
“A lack of server infrastructure for SCCM and integration complexity has always been a huge deterrent,” said Tobias Abele, manager of the team doing SCCM projects for cellent customers. “Our partnership with Adaptiva will allow our customers to install the entire SCCM infrastructure in a few days instead of the weeks or months it traditionally takes to deploy SCCM globally. We’re excited to bring this capability to the European market.”
cellent has provided infrastructure solutions for more than 20 years, supporting medium and large-sized businesses across all sectors in the development and optimization of their IT infrastructure. Based on the Gartner and Microsoft infrastructure optimization model, cellent combines the deep technical expertise of a global systems integrator with the consulting excellence and economic power of a complete provider.
“When cellent deploys OneSite, our mutual customers will experience a quick and simple SCCM implementation around the globe at a fraction of the cost,” said Deepak Kumar, founder and CTO of Adaptiva. “SCCM rollouts will be much faster with OneSite, and the solution will add new capabilities beyond native SCCM. In particular, our Rapid OSD capabilities will allow for quick, automated migration to Windows 7 and Windows 8 worldwide, without requiring any server or PXE infrastructure at all.”
