Matrix42 Adds Windows 8 Support and Includes Compliance and Self-Service With Workplace Management Solutions

Matrix42 Provides Management of All Assets in the Dynamic Workplace With a User-Centric Approach to Increase Productivity and Reduce Costs

LEHI, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 -- Matrix42 (www.matrix42.com) has released updates to its products for managing physical and virtual devices to add support for Windows 8 and now includes workplace compliance and self-service capabilities as part of the product purchase. This allows companies to provide an integrated and user-centric approach to IT workplace management that maximizes end-user productivity and reduces IT costs.

"With the continuing explosive growth in the amount of data and devices businesses need to manage, IT departments remain under extreme pressure to do more with less," said Herbert Uhl, Matrix42 CEO. "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."

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. This removes common, repetitive IT tasks from the helpdesk and lets end users solve their IT challenges on demand to reduce service costs by up to 70 percent.
  • Workplace compliance included for managing assets, licenses and contracts. Companies can see 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.
  • Support for Windows 8 as well as Windows SQL Server 2012 and Mac OS 10.8 in Matrix42 Physical Workplace Management. It can be used to manage desktops running these operating systems and to automate an OS migration to any of them.
  • Ability to freely design the software library and set up enhanced task delegation options.
  • Tighter control over software rollouts with more precise definition of maintenance windows and exceptions to avoid interrupting work processes.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
