SoftGrid solutions support simple deployment
Businesses looking to reduce the complexity of application deployment can turn to QA-IQ Group, leading the way for Microsoft's SoftGrid technology with an end-to-end solution available through solutions provider, IQ-Sys, and sister company training provider, QA-IQ.

Microsoft SoftGrid provides users with secure, on-demand access to applications through unique virtualisation technology. Businesses can increase the efficiency of their IT processes, and improve the desktop experience of their end users, with the combination of the SoftGrid® Platform, an engine that turns applications into centrally managed virtual services that are delivered on-demand.

As the sole UK distribution partner for the Microsoft SoftGrid Platform, IQ-Sys provides its partners with the commercial and technical support they need to maximise the benefits of application virtualisation. "Successful application deployment can be labour-intensive, and particularly for large organisations it is often complex," explains SoftGrid product manager at IQ-Sys, Jane Simons. "We not only supply the software required to solve these challenges, but also the expertise and support to ensure a trouble-free implementation. For companies looking to deploy new solutions such as Windows Vista, or to reduce the cost of managing applications generally, this technology is an ideal way to simplify this process."

To ensure that staff are confident in the ongoing administration and maintenance of SoftGrid solutions, QA-IQ provides in-depth training courses that include hands-on lab exercises. Jane Simons adds; "It's important that technical staff are confident in their skills to both deploy and maintain the SoftGrid system, and these courses give a detailed introduction to application virtualisation. The courses provide the skills needed to plan and install SoftGrid version 4.1, including both server and client installation, sequencer planning and advanced sequencing."

To find out more about how SoftGrid can support your deployment of Windows Vista, hear IQ-Sys and QA-IQ experts speak at QA-IQ's Deployment Summit. Taking place at the Microsoft Campus, Thames Valley Park, on April 18th the event includes speakers from Microsoft's Deployment Centre of Excellence. Find out more at, call 0870 90 600 90, or email
