Many of our clients are new to mobility, desktop virtualisation and application delivery, whilst some are just looking to upgrade their current solutions. Either way, Deptive brings the best technology to the table, overhauling (or rescuing!) existing systems, or building robust new ones from the ground up.
Our clients are our best ambassadors here’s a selection:
Vero is a leading provider of insurance products and services in New Zealand and it’s never far out of the news. When they wanted to refresh their Citrix environment, they called on Deptive to design their desktop and application delivery platform. The extensive design included Citrix XenApp 6.5, Citrix XenDesktop 5.6, Citrix Provisioning Services, Citrix EdgeSight and Citrix NetScaler. A big project, but handled with that Deptive flair: we’re very proud to be part of the Vero success story.
Tyco is one of the largest fire safety and protection companies in the world. It’s a $10 billion company helping thousands of people all over the world, requiring the very best IT infrastructure which they simply didn’t have. The old Tyco infrastructure was running on outdated software and hardware. The Citrix server farm was running unsupported software and using outdated and warranty-expired hardware.
Tyco chose Deptive to bring sanity and efficiency to the system, and we loved doing it. We worked closely with them to understand their business requirements, delivered proof of concept and developed the business case for the new Citrix platform. A Citrix XenApp 6 farm, virtualized with VMware vSphere and delivered by Citrix Provisioning Services was then designed and implemented for Tyco. It worked well. Very well.
Following the successful project for Tyco New Zealand, Tyco Australia came calling. They wanted to design and build an identical platform for their Australian counterpart. As of today, these two platforms deliver core business applications for over 800 members of Tyco’s staff.
Flight Centre New Zealand is the company that makes travel simple. They collaborate with different agencies to make sure their customers get the cheapest prices, without compromising on quality. They make it simple for their customers, but some of their internal infrastructure wasn’t quite as simple.
Deptive designed and built a Citrix XenApp farm to deliver virtual desktops to all New Zealand Flight Centre retail stores and staff using Citrix XenApp 6 with Citrix Provisioning Services and Citrix XenServer. The dual data centre design ensures that all 800+ staff can continue to work even if one single data centre fails, while the AppSense product suite is used to manage user profiles, secure the XenApp servers, and increase user density. It’s an elegant Deptive solution that helps keep Flight Centre at the top of its game so think of us next time you book a holiday!
