Leading UK-based Managed Services Provider Installs Unify within Two Weeks
Santa Clara, CA – December 17, 2007 - Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of management software for unified communications infrastructure, today announced that intY, a leading secure Internet managed services provider in the UK, has deployed Unify Shared Edition. intY chose Unify as its management platform because of its ability to work seamlessly with intY’s Microsoft Hosted Messaging and Collaboration (HMC) infrastructure and for its ease and speed of deployment.
intY’s customer base, which comprises corporations in the education, manufacturing, publishing, government, and technology sectors, was looking for an integrated solution that combined messaging and collaboration with intY’s security expertise. The company initially decided to deploy Microsoft HMC version 4.0., but after weeks of internal deployment activity, the company realized it would be more effective to find a management solution that worked efficiently with the HMC 4.0 infrastructure. Specifically, intY was looking for a platform that could offer customer facing control panels, automate time-consuming tasks and support complex reseller structures.
Ensim Unify Shared Edition is a single, centralized software application that simplifies the day-to-day burden of activating, configuring and managing a service provider’s unified communications and collaboration infrastructure. Co-developed with Microsoft, Unify delivers a complete solution for the management and automation of hosted services under a shared infrastructure. The latest version, Unify Shared Edition 4.0, allows service providers to provision and manage Microsoft Exchange 2007 and SharePoint Services 3.0 in a wide range of deployment scenarios, including HMC 3.5, HMC 4.0 and homegrown infrastructure.
- Unify’s powerful role-based delegated administration tool allows end customers to maintain complete control of services, while lowering support costs.
- Users can easily deploy and manage over 15 hosted services, such as Exchange 2003, 2007, Windows SharePoint 3.0 services, Live Communications Server, web and data hosting.
- Additional third party applications, including Fenestrae Communications Server, Cycos, SmarterMail, Siemens HiPath OpenScape™, BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and BroadSoft BroadWorks can also be delivered.
For the deployment, Ensim introduced its EMEA technology partner, Info Support. Thanks to Ensim Unify’s ease of use and Info Support’s domain expertise, Info Support had Unify installed and its entire HMC 4.0 platform rebuilt within two weeks. Using Unify’s Web Services API, intY’s development staff was also able to complete the integration of its OSS/BSS solution with Unify.
“We evaluated other solutions, and chose Ensim Unify because it’s quickly deployable on HMC 4.0,” said Mark Herbert, chief technical officer of intY. “We needed a platform that would enable us to quickly roll out security services for our Exchange customers, and also allow us to easily add additional ones in the future.”
“Deploying Unify for HMC 4.0 in such a short time, along with our partner Info Support, is an achievement to be proud of,” said Francois Depayras, vice president of sales and marketing at Ensim. “With Unify Shared Edition 4.0, Ensim offers major conveniences to service providers by letting them deploy Exchange 2007 and other Microsoft services on their existing HMC solution, or on a new HMC 4.0 infrastructure.”
