BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adaptiva, a leading, global provider of add-ons for Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), today announced a strategic partnership with APPtechnology, a leading provider of application packaging and SCCM services in the UK. Through the partnership, APPtechnology will be well-positioned to serve the needs of customers in UK and Europe with a dedicated Adaptiva practice located at its head office in London.
Leading the Adaptiva practice will be APPtechnology's Mark Churly, Head of Software Solutions. Churly brings 18 years of IT and management experience to the new practice, including 14 years as the global head of SCCM and application packaging services for one of the world's top 10 banks.
Adaptiva OneSite enables large enterprises and any company with multiple offices around the globe to deploy SCCM without server infrastructure, dramatically reducing cost and IT effort. OneSite's Rapid OSD can shave years off the time it takes to migrate all systems from Windows XP to 7/8, or from Windows 7 to 8.
"Adaptiva OneSite fits perfectly in our solutions portfolio, and the software pays for itself many times over by eliminating the need to maintain a server and storage infrastructure with SCCM," Churly said. "It also enables the deployment of applications and updates to very low bandwidth sites, which had been seemingly impossible before without impacting business traffic on the WAN."
APPtechnology helps blue chip clients gain control of their applications and SCCM infrastructure to reduce ongoing costs. APPtechnology improves business performance by rationalizing license costs, managing application lifecycles, and increasing the efficiency of the SCCM estate. APPtechnology also offers advanced application solutions for ongoing migration projects.
"APPtechnology is investing heavily in the partnership, and we're confident our clients will benefit from a stronger local presence," said Deepak Kumar, Founder and CTO, Adaptiva. "Our rapid OSD capability, which allows for automated worldwide OSD without PXE servers or other remote infrastructure, fits nicely with APPtechnology's Windows Migrations business."
APPtechnology and Adaptiva will both be available at TechEd Europe 2014 in Barcelona to discuss the OneSite solution.
