BONITA SPRINGS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 29, 2003--OnDemand Software: Makers of WinINSTALL(TM) and IntelliMover(TM) announce strategic partnership providing the fastest and most accurate way to migrate a corporate users PC from one machine to another
-- OnDemand Software today announced a strategic partnership with Detto Technologies to deliver the most comprehensive desktop availability solution available today - providing full distribution and restoration capabilities for operating systems, settings, and data.
-- IntelliMover OnDemand is process based. ROI is directly related to this process.
OnDemand Software, Inc. and Detto Technologies, Inc. have entered into an Alliance Agreement to develop and deliver best-in-class personal computer migration and management products designed to dramatically reduce the time, costs and difficulties associated with day-to-day management of client PCs.
The first product that emerges from this partnership is IntelliMover OnDemand, which is now available. IntelliMover OnDemand is a new personality migration solution that makes hardware migrations and upgrades much quicker and less expensive. IntelliMover OnDemand delivers immediate ROI by lowering the total cost of ownership associated with PC migrations, OS upgrades and refreshing hardware. IntelliMover OnDemand cuts the time in migrating a user from one machine to another to less than half an hour which directly results in lower costs for PC migration.
The OnDemand Difference
OnDemand and Detto decided to design a product that would make the migration process as smooth, quick, and reliable as possible. The main cost saving vehicle with IntelliMover OnDemand is the underlining process that is built into the tool. This process is as general as possible, designed to deal with the requirements of all business groups and geographic locations, without the need to spend effort on local adaptations. Migration tools without supporting processes may not lead to anticipated cost savings or productivity increases. This is one key differentiator against competitive products.
OnDemand Software has also created an ROI Calculator that is tied directly to this process. The IntelliMover OnDemand ROI Calculator takes into consideration the time and cost of system migration. Using analytic data provided by Gartner Group, and after extensive in-house testing, we have arrived at several factors that allow us to calculate the amount of time that it takes IntelliMover OnDemand to perform a migration versus the time that is requisite of performing it manually and also the time required by competitive offerings.
Developing an Effective PC Migration Process
IntelliMover OnDemand will eliminate a great deal of time and manual effort to this process and is greatly enhanced when used with WinINSTALL. We also know that the "process of migration" is just as important as the migration tool. We are providing a tested and proven process document that corporate IT organizations can tailor and use to assure consistency and quality with your migration process. It is important to note that OnDemand Software has desktop experts that are available to teach this process and start companies on a path to significant savings in managing the PC migration process. IntellliMover OnDemand is a companion product for WinINSTALL, OnDemand's flagship software distribution system. WinINSTALL and IntelliMover OnDemand will be integrated in a later release but may be used effectively together today. "Many of the customers we are working with are in the planning stages of a migration whether it be to Windows XP, Windows 2000 or a hardware refresh," said Jack Palmer, President and CEO, OnDemand. "IntelliMover OnDemand will save them significant amounts of time and money with less disruption and less negative impact to each PC user. IntelliMover OnDemand is built to keep employee productivity high through a best practices migration and raise the ROI for the customer."
"OnDemand is a natural partner for Detto," said Larry Mana'o, CEO, Detto Technologies. "Their proven WinINSTALL solution allows businesses to quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively package and deploy application software. When coupled with the settings and data migration capabilities of IntelliMover, we can provide customers with a desktop availability solution that is more powerful and cost-effective than any other single-vendor suite solution." "We know that IntelliMover OnDemand will be the defining product in this market space," said Paul Pieske, OnDemand Vice President. "We evaluated a host of potential migration partners, and Detto offered by far the most impactful set of features with unsurpassed ease of installation, speed and use. Couple that with a process tied directly to ROI and we truly have a winning solution that will leave competitive offerings behind."

A recent Gartner report maintains that by taking advantage of new deployment and migration tools and technologies, a typical organization with 2,500 PCs could reduce the cost of new PC setup and installation by as much as $103,000 or 55 percent per year.
