Microsoft Technology Centers provide the resources that the modern enterprise needs — from technology experts to an exceptional technology environment — to envision, plan, build, deploy, operate, and optimize a secure, customized solution, based on Microsoft and partner technologies. Microsoft is joined by industry leaders such as 1E in hardware, software and services, who work together to create and drive joint technology initiatives and solutions. By augmenting Microsoft’s capabilities, companies like 1E help Microsoft deliver a more complete customer solution.

"The MTC offers a range of executive briefings and earlier this year, we decided to create a new briefing, focused, on sustainable IT to address the very real environmental challenges facing modern business," comments Chuck McCann, MTC Alliances Program Director. "In order to fully showcase the best technologies available, we needed to collaborate with specialists in the field. 1E was the natural choice as it offers power management solutions with excellent technology and fully featured solutions."

1E NightWatchman is the world’s leading PC power management solution with four million licensed users worldwide. Since it was launched a decade ago, 1E has saved customers USD$360 million in energy costs alone. In the year 2009, 1E will save 1 million US Tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, the equivalent of the amount of CO2 emitted from burning 2.4 million barrels of oil.

Shopping from 1E automates the request, approve, license and delivery cycle of end-user software distributions to significantly reduce operational cost and software spend while allowing IT helpdesk staff to focus on more strategic tasks. This self-service solution dramatically increases user satisfaction, is implemented rapidly and easily integrates with in-house applications. The result is a more agile IT infrastructure which puts users in control of the IT resources available to them.

Now installed in over 5 million seats worldwide and at several 200,000+ seat organizations, 1E WakeUp is proven and scalable technology for securely powering on PCs for successful software updates. By working in synchronization with Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager 2007, 1E WakeUp increases delivery success and visibility of PC health.

Sumir Karayi, CEO, 1E, comments: "We are delighted to be part of the MTC experience, helping business professionals discover the best technologies to help their organisations thrive through real world demonstrations."

More About Shopping™

Our self-service provisioning tool Shopping has a built-in application rental feature, which enables individual users to select the application they want when they want it. Expensive applications that are only needed for a short period of time can be temporarily deployed, providing your organization with significant license cost savings.  By eliminating the complexities of software provisioning and automating the request, approval, delivery and license control process, Shopping also dramatically reduces helpdesk support time.

What’s New with Shopping 3.1?

The key new features of version 3.1 include:

· Branch Office Administration – enabling delegation of administrative tasks so that app publication and approval can now be done either centrally or at a branch level, allowing organizations to save costs by delegating systems management control to branch administrators.

· Advanced Category Management - full Interactive directory integration allowing individual departments the right to restrict access to certain applications based upon the PC from which the request is being made

· Increased Platform Support – for a wider range of platforms including Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008

This new release of Shopping 3.1 also offers enhanced scalability and performance, multi-domain and Unicode support enabling application name and description displays in foreign language character sets such as Chinese and Japanese. Shopping is fully integrated with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and Active Directory.

Proven success

By deploying Shopping, our customer Peterborough City Council has seen cost savings in terms of money spent on support calls relating to the availability of new software for users. Similarly, Reed Elsevier* saw productivity savings when it gave individual users the freedom to select and install the authorized applications they wanted.

I look forward to welcoming you on the webinar.

Kind regards

Emily

Why Server Power Management?

 

When we first started to think about developing a power management solution specifically for servers, we had to first decide if there was a good reason to do so! When we developed NightWatchman for PCs, it was reasonably clear that there was (and still is) huge demand and opportunity for cost savings by implementing sensible and safe power management. After all there are millions of desktops out there, and the ratio of servers to PCs is at least 10 to 1, so the numbers are there, but what about the approach?

    1E Event: Microsoft TechEd Australia September 8-11 2009

     

    1E will be attending TechEd in Australia.

    I remember my first TechEd in New Orleans in 1998. It was an amazing learning experience, and also a great chance to catch up with peers and to see what all of the major vendors are up to.

    You tend to get a 'first look' at some upcoming technologies, and there are great speakers, hands on labs and of course some parties to attend!

    The event runs from 8th – 11th September and we'll be exhibiting there so why not pop along and say hi to 1E's Phill Freestun. He'll be able to tell you how 1E can help you to save both energy and costs, and if you twist his arm he may even give you a sneak preview of our exciting NightWatchman Server software which is due for release very soon.

    You can find all the info on speakers, sessions etc here, or if you are a twitterer, you can follow Aussie Teched here
