A large multinational logistics company was facing challenges across their EUC environment on multiple fronts:
- Lack of standardization: no common, standardized platform globally with limited mobility solutions;
- High risk environment: high percentage of aged hardware & disparate legacy business systems with significant data security concerns across the fleet impacting the ability to maintain the EUC landscape in a stable & secure manner;
- Inferior service responsiveness: Lack of automation or orchestration of common tasks, with dated manual processes and procedures, leading to a very reactive and unresponsive service management capability; and
- High cost to maintain: as a result of the disparate and fragmented nature of the EUC environment and support model, high cost to serve and limited ability to proactively manage costs.
