to Automate Strategic Worldwide Roll-Out of CRM Applications
Leading provider of embedded memory
Intellectual Property reduces IT costs while providing
faster and more efficient support for local, mobile
& remote professionals
MA (May 7, 2002)- ON Technology Corporation
(NASDAQ:ONTC), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure
management solutions, announced today that Virage Logic
Corporation has selected ON Command CCM® to provide
centralized management for PCs and laptops distributed
across its offices worldwide. Virage Logic will also
be using ON CCM's advanced management solution to automate
its enterprise-wide roll-out of Windows-based applications
and efficiently deploy ongoing updates for its business-critical
customer relationship management (CRM) system. Virage
Logic is a leading provider of embedded memory intellectual
property (IP) and the fastest growing semiconductor
IP company in the United States.
"After conducting a
comprehensive evaluation, we selected ON Technology
over competitive solutions such as Microsoft SMS,"
said Lee Donnelly, Director of Operations of Virage
Logic Corporation. "ON Technology offers the most
complete and cost-effective solution for efficiently
managing remote software installations from a central
Donnelly continued, "Some
of the features that particularly impressed us were
the system's single consistent interface for managing
all clients, whether local or remote, as well as its
powerful agent technology for performing sophisticated
'silent installations' and unattended configuration
of both operating systems and applications. We were
also impressed by ON Command CCM's rapid implementation
cycle and overall ease-of-use."
Unlike conventional management solutions that can only
be used to deploy applications and content, ON Command
CCM is the only enterprise-class system that offers
end-to-end lifecycle management, including unattended
operating system deployments and one-click disaster
recovery for remote workstations.
By instantaneously pushing operating
systems, applications, security patches, and content
such as price list information over Virage Logic's existing
network infrastructure (from centralized servers), ON
Command CCM eliminates the need for technicians to travel
to remote locations to install the latest software or
rebuild malfunctioning systems. As a result, ON's innovative
solution significantly reduces IT costs, maximizes uptime,
and provides a powerful management infrastructure for
ongoing updates and Help Desk support that greatly enhances
end-user productivity and overall customer responsiveness.
"Virage Logic, an innovative
technology leader in its own field, clearly understands
the role that technology can play in providing strategic
competitive advantage," said Robert L Doretti,
Chairman, President and CEO of ON Technology. "We
look forward to providing Virage Logic with world-class
software and services that enable the company to successfully
accomplish both its short-term and long-term IT objectives."
