Wil, Switzerland (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
LUCA School of Arts, in Ghent, Belgium, faced a common problem in many institutions today - a declining number of full time employees in the IT department, but growing technology needs. At the same time, LUCA was looking to integrate Macs into their existing Windows framework, creating a systems management challenge. As with many school environments, LUCA was faced with not only ever changing software, but ever changing policies and environments, as well. They needed a management solution that offered both ease of use and scalability, which is where FileWave came into the picture. LUCA adopted a strict energy-saving policy (e.g. automatic shutdown, hibernation, etc.) yet needed a solution that could prevent these automations from kicking in during installations, and could deploy large applications like Adobe Creative Cloud. Quick and efficient deployments on their 450 Apple machines was imperative.
FileWave is a systems and mobile device management software company that has been around for over 20 years. Based out of Wil, Switzerland, with a US office in Fishers, Indiana, FileWave manages millions of desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones across a variety of operating system, such as Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android, all from one console.
