Vista is Here. Are You Ready?


matrix42Â’s Empirum Automates Enterprise-Wide Migration to Vista OS

ATLANTA (February 14, 2007) – matrix42, a leading developer of system management software, today announced the availability of an add-on to its Empirum technology that fully automates Microsoft Windows Vista rollouts. The solution makes enterprise migrations to the new OS a faster and easier process.

Windows Vista has been available to businesses since late November 2006. According to Forrester Research, one-fourth of larger companies – those with 1,000 or more employees – will deploy Vista within the first year of its release, and an additional one-fourth are anticipated to do the same within two years of the release.

“With the availability of Vista, IT personnel are contemplating the time and complexity involved in migrating enterprise desktops and servers,” said Ronald L. Harrison, Chief Operating Officer of matrix42. “Empirum significantly reduces these concerns with capabilities to automate Vista rollouts across hundreds or even thousands of devices.”

Harrison added that matrix42 customers with maintenance contracts can download the new Empirum Vista add-on from the companyÂ’s web site without charge.

Empirum is the industryÂ’s most comprehensive IT lifecycle management suite for enterprise networked devices. The integrated toolset simplifies daily operational tasks for IT staff, providing greater management control while increasing productivity and reducing costs.

Other functions in the Empirum suite can be used to determine whether networked hardware meets system requirements for Vista, and to identify existing applications with potential compatibility problems, prior to rollout.

Empirum also offers a unique personal backup component that can backup and restore personal work environments following successful Vista migrations.

matrix42 solutions are available direct from matrix42 and from its network of North American reseller partners.

matrix42 Announces Relationship with Thinstall


matrix42 Adds Application Virtualization to its Arsenal of IT Management Solutions

ATLANTA (February 13, 2008) - matrix42, a leading developer of software for IT systems management, today announced a strategic business relationship with Thinstall, the leading agentless application virtualization provider, which VMware, Inc. plans to acquire. The relationship includes joint marketing and allows matrix42 and its resellers to directly offer Thinstall solutions to customers who will benefit from the joint solutions.

The combination of Thinstall's application virtualization solution and matrix42's Empirum suite of systems management software offers IT a cost-effective, easy-to-use platform to manage numerous system upgrades and software deployments while maintaining the stability and integrity of a secure desktop environment. matrix42 delivers a comprehensive IT Lifecycle Configuration Management solution that eliminates time-consuming hard disk imaging of PCs, offering 30 percent additional cost savings over competitive solutions. The addition of Thinstall provides customers more options for managing application distribution, including native installation, imaging, virtualization and streaming. Customers enjoy efficiency and performance, while minimizing operational and administrative costs.

"Working with Thinstall supports matrix42's best practices for IT management," said Richard Ashe, vice president of marketing at matrix42. "Automated desktop management and virtualization go hand in hand. We are always seeking ways to allow our customers to be more agile and responsive to business demands without sacrificing efficiency, reliability, or accountability. We chose Thinstall because they have the best solution in the market, bar none."

Application virtualization is an important component of application management. Application virtualization allows support of legacy applications that cannot be migrated or deployed without conflict. It also improves IT service capabilities by enabling applications to be deployed quickly, securely, and reliably. Thinstall is agentless, allowing matrix42 customers to quickly implement it in their existing environments.

"The cost and productivity impact of application 'breaks' is a pain point for businesses today — the person can't do their job and it strains help desk resources as well, especially with remote desktop users," said Jeanne Morain, vice president of marketing and strategic alliances at Thinstall. "This relationship offers matrix42's customers the ability to deliver virtual applications for efficiency and cost savings. IT's challenge is to deliver a secure, stable desktop environment despite constant application updates and deployments. Thinstall's agentless virtualization technology eliminates single points of failure and conflicts between applications. The joint solutions save customers 'break-fix' costs, while strengthening and streamlining IT asset management."

According to Gartner Research VP Ronni Colville: "Application delivery is viewed as a mainstream IT service in many organizations, and is part of overall PC lifecycle configuration management. Virtualization extends the range of viable options for the delivery, isolation and management of PC applications. How applications are installed, run and updated has direct implications on the cost and complexity of management and security. There is no silver bullet, and many organizations will need solutions that support both traditional delivery as well as application virtualization. Selecting which client architecture to use for new applications is a crucial decision that will have significant bearing on future investments."

Through the relationship with Thinstall, matrix42 will be able to deliver a comprehensive set of choices in application delivery and management for customers.
