By Mandira Srivastava
To give users transparent access to their data and services everywhere, from any virtual or physical device at any time, Matrix42 has released updates to its products for managing physical and virtual devices to add support for Windows 8.
Now the company’s products include workplace compliance and self-service capabilities as part of the product purchase.
Herbert Uhl, Matrix42 CEO, said in a statement, "Matrix42 allows companies to automate management processes and more efficiently utilize their IT assets and software licenses to significantly reduce their costs. We also improve employee productivity with self-service access to data and services from anywhere and at any time while maintaining corporate security and workplace compliance."
This allows companies to offer an integrated and user-centric approach to IT workplace management that maximizes end-user productivity and reduces IT costs.
Matrix42’s new features and functionality include full incorporation of self-service into virtual desktop management and endpoint management, which allows users to request and provision automated services.
The updated Workplace compliance services are included for managing assets, licenses and contracts. The companies can analyze where they are overpaying for licenses and where they are missing contracts, which ensures compliance and has been shown to save up to 30 percent on software license expenses.
Matrix42 Physical Workplace Management supports Windows 8 as well as Windows SQL Server 2012 and Mac OS 10.8, and it can be used to manage desktops running these operating systems and to automate an OS migration to any of them.
It has ability to design the software library and set up enhanced task delegation options as well.
The updated Matrix Workplace management solutions have strong control over software rollouts with more precise definition of maintenance windows and exceptions to avoid interrupting work processes.
