"We are very pleased with Parallels RAS! The support is always helpful and fast. The ease of use of the software is fantastic!"
The ChallengeA new solution that could reduce their complexity and improve their operations.
Landgenossenschaft Ennstal e. Gen had previously implemented remote desktop applications and session management through Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS). However, with no central dedicated console, IT administrators had to individually configure each component via different management consoles.
Dissatisfaction with the time required to log in to different servers, as well as difficulties scaling, and frustrations caused by update limitations prompted Landgenossenschaft Ennstal to actively look for an alternative solution.
They needed a solution that could reduce their complexity and improve their operations. The team needed access to applications and documents from any device, which was not possible with their Microsoft RDS installation.
The TestCan Parallels RAS reduce IT effort and the need for external expertise to manage updates?
Landgenossenschaft Ennstal was interested in having the most useful features be included automatically so that they could reduce the IT time and expertise required to manage updates and focus on successfully deploying and operating remote networks.
Moreover, they needed a new solution that would allow them to deliver secure access to their remote desktops that would improve productivity seamlessly. That's when they tried Parallels RAS.
The SolutionParallels RAS chosen for the ability to access resources and applications on any device along with improved session management efficacy and security.
Landgenossenschaft Ennstal examined the leading application and desktop delivery solutions before choosing to implement Parallels RAS for their needs.
