LAS VEGAS, NV, Apr 09 (Marketwired) -- MMS 2013 -- Adaptiva, an award-winning provider of IT systems management software solutions, announced today at the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) 2013 in Las Vegas that Barclays (NYSE: BCS) has selected the Adaptiva IT Systems Management Suite for deployment worldwide. Barclays is a leading global financial services provider engaged in personal banking, credit cards, corporate and investment banking and investment management with an extensive international presence in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. With over 300 years of history and expertise in banking, Barclays operates in over 50 countries and employs 140,000 people. With the Adaptiva IT Systems Management Suite, Barclays will achieve significant IT efficiencies and considerable savings by streamlining IT operations, extending the capabilities of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), eliminating existing server infrastructure, while accelerating the delivery of business critical applications, operating system images, and security patches. The Adaptiva software suite consists of three software products: OneSite, Green Planet and Client Health. Adaptiva OneSite will enable Barclays to move large amounts of data anywhere, anytime, without investing in additional servers, storage capacity or network bandwidth. In addition, Adaptiva OneSite can distinguish between critical security patches, applications and operating system images, and automatically expedites the delivery of critical security patches. Green Planet offers PC power management, Wake-on-LAN capabilities and minimizes carbon emissions while continually collecting data and reporting on the effectiveness of Green IT initiatives in complex global computing infrastructures. Client Health automatically detects and remediates PC health problems before the user is aware, slashing downtime for users and minimizing the cost of supporting large distributed computing infrastructures. With Adaptiva incorporating multiple products into a single common agent, server and admin console, the cost and complexity of ownership is dramatically reduced -- allowing Barclays to achieve even greater IT efficiencies. "The financial services industry is recognized as one of the most demanding sectors for IT, where success does not come without cutting edge technology and proven ability," said Deepak Kumar, CTO and founder of Adaptiva. "Our software solutions offer Barclays the ability to slash server infrastructure and enhance security while reducing overall costs associated with managing large distributed networks. Their decision to adopt our entire product suite validates our continued commitment to delivering infrastructure software that addresses a broad set of business challenges for some of the most complex, sophisticated and demanding computing environments in the world."
