…Hallidays’ IT team become fee generators and advisors rather than just internal IT managers … Reading UK. May 9, 2017 – IGEL, a world leader in the delivery of powerful unified endpoint management (UEM) software, thin clients, zero clients and all-in-one solutions, today announced that Hallidays, an award winning firm of accountants and business advisors in the North West of England, has implemented server and desktop virtualization along with IGEL UD2 and multimedia UD3 thin client terminals to significantly enhance organisational efficiency and boost team productivity. By investing internally in best of breed, reliable and easy to use technology, Hallidays is freeing its team – particularly eight IT consultants - to focus on helping advise clients about how to grow and manage their businesses without its own technology limiting this or being a time-consuming overhead to look after. IGEL was selected over competitive companies because of its Universal Management Suite (UMS) facilitates easy deployment. Matthew Jones, Hallidays’ IT manager says, “The IGEL management console is powerful. The whole point of buying IGEL is to make life simple for users and our IT team. You plug a device in, it appears in the UMS, policies are then applied and once rebooted, that’s it – it’s done. It takes five minutes from no configuration at all to full configuration and, compared to a traditional PC, we’re saving about one day a week on desktop administration.” Founded in 1843, Hallidays supports numerous clients in the Stockport and Greater Manchester area with specific expertise working with SMEs[1], credit unions, academies, charities and solicitors. Offering fixed priced engagements, Hallidays provides a broad range of services covering not only accountancy and tax advice, but business growth, HR, IT, recruitment, payroll, wealth management and corporate finance. In the past three years, revenue generated by Halliday’s IT team alone – a group of eight who provide clients IT support and consultancy - has grown 250% given they have been able to become fee generators themselves rather than just internal IT managers and break-fix problem solvers. A new platform to support growth This has been achieved as Hallidays has shifted its whole IT infrastructure to a virtualized environment to simplify management and put in place a platform for growth. At the end of 2012, it standardised on VMware vSphere for its server backend solution and Citrix’s VDI-in-a-Box for the desktop, with the business subsequently reducing its physical estate from 11 to 3 servers. At the same time, a private cloud was created allowing its team of 80 – from wherever they are - to access files and key applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Digita accounting software and an in-house developed practice management suite, Practice DNA, which among other things provides value-based billing functionality. The benefits of virtualization and VDI have been immediate and are as follows: Refreshing all desktop devices has also simplified management Initially, Hallidays used ‘fat clients’ as desktop devices but these weren’t as reliable as expected. Jones explains, “We experienced intermittent connection issues between our Windows-based devices and the new VDI environment because of various software plug-ins. A simple and reliable alternative had to be found.” Hallidays contacted its IT partner, cloudDNA, for advice given they had successfully worked on another project to improve the security of the cloud infrastructure as well as ensuring compliance policies were being met. Jones says, “They did a good job here. I thought the cloudDNA team were very approachable and easy to talk to so we’ve turned to them for help with our VDI project and desktop purchase.” Jo Wright, cloudDNA Practice Director, managed the vendor selection process for Hallidays. “We took time to understand the challenges faced from both a business and technical perspective before introducing them to IGEL,” says Wright. “Collectively, we were able to demonstrate the value of IGEL during a proof of concept and within a few days had moved onto a pilot user group. IGEL makes it that easy.” IGEL UD2 and multimedia ready UD3 terminals have been installed at Hallidays in a phased and painless roll out, with the final batch just purchased to complete the project company-wide. To date, Halliday’s investment in virtualization, cloud infrastructure, servers, storage, networking and IGEL terminals totals in excess of £175,000. Considerable total cost of ownership benefits In addition, the IGEL UD2 and UD3 terminals are cost effective consuming a fifth of the power and costing approximately half the amount of a traditional PC. Jones says, “Hallidays takes being green extremely seriously and we use solar panels on our building. We’ve set policies on the IGEL thin clients so they power on when some-one connects into their virtual desktop and power down when they log off – that’s quite a big electricity saving over the course of a year when you have an 80 strong team.” Feedback from the business has also been positive. Jones says, “I can’t tell you how much people love getting an IGEL. I’m honestly not joking. They go from a traditional desktop with intermittent connectivity issues to an IGEL thin client which is just so much quicker and more reliable – it just works. The feedback we get from the team is brilliant.” Ainsley Brooks, IGEL’s UK & Ireland country manager, says, “Hallidays has shown that it is committed to choosing class leading solutions and then successfully implementing them. This is important given its advisory work with clients. It demonstrates it has a knowledgeable and experienced IT team at the forefront of technology able to help customers select the right solution to support their commercial requirements.” About IGEL IGEL delivers powerful endpoint management software that is revolutionary in its simplicity and purpose-built for the enterprise. The company’s world-leading products, including the IGEL Universal Management Suite, IGEL™ Linux-powered thin and zero clients, and all-in-one thin client solutions, deliver a smart and secure endpoint management experience that shifts granular control of thin and zero client devices from the end user to IT.

Integration between VMware AirWatch® and Dell Client Command Suite will extend remote management capabilities for key Dell hardware system attributes to enhance AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management™ (UEM). Additionally, at Dell EMC World, Dell announced Dell EMC VDI Complete Solutions that will offer a complete desktop and application virtualization solution powered by VMware Horizon® with workload optimized infrastructure, integrated software, optional Dell Wyse thin clients and industry-leading pricing. These integrated solutions showcase the benefits of Dell Technologies, a unique family of businesses that provides the essential infrastructure for organizations to build its digital future, transform IT and protect the most important asset -- information. "VMware and Dell, together, are delivering powerful business benefits that can drive down cost and time-to-desktop that can have a real impact to the bottom line for organizations, and also to front line IT practitioners," said Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware. "Integrating industry-leading solutions from both companies demonstrates that we are better together and in a stronger position to help businesses frustrated with the burden of managing multiple vendor contracts, service level agreements, solution management consoles and everything in between that drive up the total cost of ownership." "Organizations are looking for solutions that will help them accelerate their workforce transformation while controlling cost and complexity," said Steve Lalla, senior vice president and general manager, commercial client software & solutions, Dell. "Through our close collaboration with VMware, we are able to deliver integrated solutions from the endpoint to the data center and required software that will provide even greater value to organizations than ever before." Enhancing VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management VMware AirWatch integrates with Dell Client Command Suite -- client systems management tools for Dell commercial client PCs -- to extend management capabilities to key system attributes. With this integration, IT admins can query and retrieve critical system attributes, configure basic input/output system (BIOS) settings, and take remediation actions from the same AirWatch console that is used to manage all Windows OS polices, apps and endpoints across an organization. With the ability to query and report key system attributes -- including service tag information, BIOS version and battery status -- IT can proactively manage Dell commercial PCs directly with AirWatch, minimizing user downtown and ensuring business continuity. This integration helps IT assess BIOS security and take actions to remediate and improve alignment with compliance requirements. IT can remotely configure BIOS passwords, enable use of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and take remediation actions on non-compliant devices from a single AirWatch admin console. This serves as another example of how AirWatch has evolved from being an enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution to a unified endpoint management (UEM) solution. Complete End-to-End VDI Solutions, Fast and Simple Implementing client virtualization solutions can be expensive, uncertain and difficult to determine the true cost of acquisition. Dell EMC VDI Complete Solutions offer a complete end-to-end desktop and application virtualization solution that is quick to deploy and simple to manage. VDI Complete includes the VxRail Appliance family of fully integrated, preconfigured and pre-tested HCI appliances that offers the industry's only HCI appliances powered by VMware vSAN™ and are jointly engineered with VMware. Customers can leverage a single, ready-to-deploy solution with all the necessary components needed to provision virtual desktops and applications in half the steps and time compared to deploying individual solutions. With multiple configuration options to choose from, customers can start small and predictably pay as they grow with the option to build or buy an on-premises or cloud managed solution. Customers can also take advantage of streamlined procurement and sales and enjoy significant savings on end-to-end solutions (infrastructure, software and endpoints) compared to purchasing the same solutions a-la-carte. "Tighter integration between VMware End-User Computing and Dell EMC solutions was to be expected after the acquisition," said Matt Eastwood, Senior Vice President of IDC's Enterprise Infrastructure Group at IDC. "With combined industry leadership in several key enterprise and cloud markets including end-user computing, virtual desktop infrastructure, enterprise servers, storage systems and enterprise mobility management, the new Dell Technologies family can put hardware, software, and services offerings together to meet evolving customer needs to deliver new and more comprehensive business solutions. This announcement appears to be the first step in that direction." Availability and Pricing The VMware AirWatch integration with Dell Client Command Suite is available immediately.
