An Asia Pacific Bank
In 2011, the Environmental team for this Asia Pacific bank asked IT staff to help reduce the bank’s carbon footprint. With IT departments often viewed as cost centers, the IT team saw it as an ideal opportunity to demonstrate the benefits of effective systems management.
This Asia Pacific bank sought to build a framework for efficient endpoint management that would increase patch compliance, reduce power costs, and streamline software distribution processes.
With IBM® Endpoint Manager, built on BigFix® technology, the bank’s systems management staff can rapidly remediate, protect, and report in real time on its endpoints—from PCs and laptops to mobile devices and ATMs.
More than 25 percent annual reduction in power costs; 99.99 percent patch compliance; 99 percent faster software package distribution
