Case Study

Improved user satisfaction and lower management burden at De Fryske Marren

De Fryske Marren is a municipality in the province of Friesland, the Netherlands. The municipality is a merger between several other municipalities and has approximately 51,678 inhabitants.

Employees of the municipality of De Fryske Marren now work on a completely new, modern, fast ICT environment that is independent of time, place, and device. In addition, more effective management gives the IT department more time for innovation. A flexible workspace concept based on Windows 10 combined with Liquit.

 

The Challenge

Migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10 while saving time with packaging of applications and implementing an DTAP (development, testing, acceptance, production) process. All while simplifying overall IT management.

The Solution

Liquit Workspace with Liquit Release & Patch Management were implemented. The team was able to migrate to Windows 10 but also switched to a different type of image, based on the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, and set up the update mechanism differently with Windows Server Update Services. In the final step they jointly started to get all applications technically and functionally ready for the new platform. The project was completed within nine months, from the first implementation designs to going live. Well in time before the end date of Windows 7 support.

  • Capabilities to speed applications to end-users — Saving the IT team time and effort
  • Easy migration possibilities
  • Workspace designed to make business easier

The Result

9
months to complete the whole project
reduction in IT time and effort
improved end-user statisfaction
Liquit is used as a means of deploying applications and is easy for the user and the IT department to manage.
