IT Consulting

Specific Technology Challenges

As the company expanded through multiple acquisitions, it faced the significant challenge of onboarding employees from each acquired entity and merging them into a unified end-user computing experience. The primary obstacle was integrating these diverse groups into the company’s existing IT infrastructure without disrupting their current workflows.

Each acquisition brought its own set of systems and processes, complicating the task of creating a seamless, cohesive operational environment. This integration required not only technical alignment of different computing systems, but also careful management to ensure that all users could continue their work without interruption during the transition. The need for a robust solution that could handle the complexity of this integration while maintaining high levels of user satisfaction and productivity was critical.

Opportunity for Improvement

The company recognized a crucial opportunity for improvement in its IT infrastructure to support its growing operations. To effectively manage the integration of employees from multiple acquisitions and ensure a consistent computing experience across the board, they identified the need to expand their Citrix environment and deploy Nutanix to run their new Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). This expansion would be essential not only for enhancing scalability, but also for providing a robust, manageable platform capable of supporting an increased number of users without compromising on performance or security.

By upgrading to a more scalable VDI solution, the company could ensure that their IT infrastructure would seamlessly adapt to rapid company-wide changes and growing demands. This strategic enhancement would allow for easier management of resources, better security protocols, and improved efficiency across all user interactions within the newly integrated network. This was an opportunity to build a more resilient and flexible IT ecosystem that could support the company’s ambitious growth and the diverse needs of its expanding workforce.

To address their IT challenges and capitalize on the opportunity for a streamlined process, the company partnered with Choice Solutions.
