Includes data centre transformation, end-user and unified communications services
Unisys has announced that it is providing multiple services-based offerings for the new Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environments. The new offerings include data centre transformation as well as end-user services and a unified communications service that Unisys is hosting for Microsoft.
According to Unisys, its end-user productivity services enable IT organisations to realise the full business potential of exchange server 2010 and windows 7. These services provide multiple options for end users to securely access productivity environments whether running centrally managed applications locally on mobile devices such as netbooks and smartphones, accessing them through cloud-based services or using a mixture of delivery options.
In addition, Unisys also provides migration and management support for Windows 7 to help clients deploy the new environment. Also, the advanced desktop management, support and applications delivery capabilities of Unisys end-user productivity services give windows 7 users anywhere, anytime access to critical productivity environments, the company claims.
Unisys said that it has been selected by Microsoft to build and manage its unified communications virtual experience for exchange server 2010 and office communications server 2007 R2. This cloud-based trial service enables enterprise users to try, free of charge, the latest Microsoft UC technology.
The service gives organisations the opportunity to test new features of the Microsoft offerings, such as multi-party instant messaging and voice and video conferencing, and evaluate the benefits of Microsoft unified communications for their business. It also helps them assess how they can help employees collaborate productively, the company said.
Colin Lacey, vice president of systems and storage at Unisys, said: “When Microsoft delivers software innovations, Unisys is there with innovative solutions that help clients realise the full value of the products. We’re doing that again for these latest Microsoft offerings to help users improve their operations and make their people better able to do business anywhere at any time.”
