The power consumption of idle devices is no small issue. Potential savings are significant in organisations of all sizes, and especially so in large retail chains
Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB UK) 15 June 2011
Miradore, an innovative provider of automated IT asset management services, today announced the integration of mobile phones in its powerful remote workstation management solution. The new Miradore 3.0 provides IT management with a single dashboard view and remote access to a wider range of end user devices, including smartphones.
Miradore’s cloud-based management solution integrates all end device management functions, increasing the efficiency of IT management. The software suite consists of integrated asset management, remote configuration management and other lifecycle management tools. The new Miradore 3.0 supports Android 2.2 and Symbian 3 based mobile devices, Windows and Linux based workstations and retail point-of-sale (POS) terminals. Support for Apple’s iPhone/iPad and OS X for Mac are planned for later this year.
“Until now, mobile phones are typically managed with separate dedicated tools, if managed at all,” said Kristian Järnefelt, CEO of Miradore. “With a converged management solution, organizations gain the flexibility required to cope with the increasingly diverse range of devices, without losing control of how their network is accessed.”
A key feature of the Miradore 3.0 is the extension of remote management from operating system deployment, software distribution, configuration and problem-solving to power consumption. By monitoring the power mode and usage of computers in corporate networks, Miradore locates unnecessary power consumption and calculates savings attainable through Green IT initiatives.
“The power consumption of idle devices is no small issue. Potential savings are significant in organisations of all sizes, and especially so in large retail chains,” said Kristian Järnefelt. “An automated and remotely monitored shutdown and start-up of 5,000 POS terminals for ten hours during every night brings up to 1,000 Euros of savings in electricity – per day.”
The Miradore 3.0 is a highly automated management suite that independently gathers up-to-date asset and performance data at configurable intervals and distributes new applications or packages to end devices. Designed to scale to environments with tens of thousands of devices, Miradore increases the efficiency of IT management processes and eliminates a large share of manual work.
End users benefit from the Miradore 3.0 through the improved quality of IT support services, as their devices can be deployed, configured and updated remotely over the network, without having to wait for IT technicians to handle the issues in person. The mobile device management functionalities bring additional peace of mind and anti-theft protection, as Miradore enables remote locking and wiping of lost or stolen devices.
Significant new and improved features in the Miradore 3.0 include renewed licence management and multi-language support. Licence management now allocates software licences automatically to specific devices or users, which helps comply with complex licensing rules and reduces licence costs by removing licences from assets withdrawn from service. Miradore’s self service portal is now available in Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.
Miradore serves clients through strong ICT service providers, and has entered in partnerships with leading companies including Fujitsu and HP. The partnership with Fujitsu has led to the integration of Miradore’s management solution in their Patja service offering, which transfers the responsibility of the customers ICT to Fujitsu and currently covers some 150,000 workstations in Finland.
