Independent application and desktop delivery specialist Centralis today announced new partnerships with three leading technology vendors. The addition of App-DNA, Atlantis Computingâ¢ and Liquidware Labs to the consultancy firmâs partner portfolio enhances its market-defining methodology for the analysis, design, build, and support of application and desktop virtualisation solutions.
Centralis provides consistent and reliable results that transform a customerâs ability to deliver flexible and cost-effective services to users.
Todayâs announcement underlines Centralisâ focus on recommending solutions that are tailored to its customersâ individual requirements. The Centralis methodology is designed to simplify the transformation process, using high-quality partner products to ensure successful and efficient implementations. This rigorous methodology guides the customer at every stage, through analysis, discovery, design and validation through to pilot and deployment.
âCustomers are increasingly demanding our help to deliver greater flexibility and mobility. Virtualisation is often the most cost effective way to achieve this, as long as you take the time to ensure you are recommending the right solution for the customerâs needs,â said Ewen Anderson, Managing Director at Centralis. âWe use a proven methodology and work with customers to ensure that their virtualisation strategy is aligned with their business strategy, and that the resulting solution fits both their short term and long term requirements. The success of this process depends on sourcing the highest quality partners capable of offering best-in-class solutions for every step. App-DNA, Atlantis Computing, and Liquidware Labs all fulfil this criteria, and join an elite group of Centralis partners whose products make the desktop virtualisation vision an affordable reality.â
Atlantis Computing offers a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) storage and performance optimisation solution that integrates with leading VDI offerings to cut storage costs, provide IT teams with more storage options and boost desktop performance. âAtlantis ILIOâ¢ is fundamentally changing the economics of VDI for our partners and customers,â commented David Cumberworth, VP Sales Northern Europe at Atlantis Computing. âWe are thrilled to be working with Centralis, who are true VDI experts, and we look forward to growing the market together.â
Using its Application Migration Optimizationâ¢ process, App-DNA automates pre-migration application testing and management for end user desktops. âApplication compatibility testing requires skilled partners to deliver high value, end-to-end propositions effectively and on budget,â said Tony Coleman, Sales Manager, Northern Europe at App-DNA. âAs the world leader in application management for enterprises, App-DNA requires partners with deep technical skills and migration experience. Centralis is certainly one of these partners, and weâll be looking to this relationship to drive market share in the UK.â
Liquidware Labs is a leading provider of assessment and user experience management software that enables organisations to cost-effectively plan, migrate, and manage their next generation desktop infrastructure. Sonja Pelichet, General Manager EMEA, APAC, ANZ at Liquidware Labs added; âThis partnership will allow us to extend the influence of our leading assessment and user experience management software in the UK. With the number of organisations migrating to a Windows 7 environment continuing to rise, it is essential for customers to establish that their desktop estate is fit for purpose. Liquidware Labsâ software works perfectly as part of Centralisâ comprehensive methodology, allowing customers to cost-effectively plan, migrate, and manage their next-generation desktop infrastructure.â
âThis new line up should give our customers confidence that Centralis is expanding its capability and reacting to their requirements,â concludes Rob Greenslade Sales & Marketing Director at Centralis. âAll three vendors play their own crucial role in helping Centralis to deliver truly exceptional virtualisation solutions.
