Parallels RAS (Ex applicationserver) Enables Norwegian American Hospital to Provide Remote Access to Particular Applications Based on Business Requirements By Sean Bianco on | 0
DALLAS, TX, April 9th 2013 -- Norwegian American Hospital, a leading provider of high quality, charitable health care, has achieved a significant increase in administrative efficiency while reducing costs by using Parallels Remote Application Server (Ex applicationserver) to provide remote access to particular applications based on business requirements
Prior to November 2010, all IT services at Norwegian American Hospital had been outsourced to an external vendor. This changed when a new division of Information Technology was formed with the arrival of IT leadership in November 2010. The new IT team at NAH inherited an environment where no server-based solution was implemented and only Cisco VPN was used to connect to internal resources. The NAH IT team had very limited need for technical support related to Cisco VPN, but rather strived for a seamless virtual desktop and application delivery solution with secure remote access capability.
To solve their issues, the NAH IT team turned to Parallels. By using Parallels Remote Application Server, NAH was able to provide remote access to particular applications based on their business needs. Parallels Remote Application Server provided NAH with remote access from personal devices to corporate resources and enabled them to publish applications based on AD security groups, along with publishing RDP access to servers for vendor support.
NAH realized an immediate benefit with the ease of deploying Parallels Remote Application Server. Likewise, when NAH started using the software, they quickly witnessed its ease of administration. Furthermore, they were able to provide access to selected apps based on user/group needs. Last but not least, NAH saw significant cost savings with utilizing Parallels Remote Application Server.
“Parallels is easy to deploy and easy to manage. Our #1 benefit is having the ability to provide access to selected applications based on user-group needs.”
Director, IT Operations
