Air Products Efficiently Manages Global PC Fleet

Air Products decided to refresh more than 18,000 employee client systems worldwide to upgrade the operating system (OS) and take advantage of the latest processing technologies. The IT group selected desktops and laptops with Intel® Core™ i5 processor and Intel® Core™ vPro™ i7 processors running Microsoft Windows* 7. Administrators anticipate that Intel vPro technology will help them resolve more software-related issues remotely, while Intel security technologies will help protect data stored on client systems and the network. The new processors also will help deliver the performance for a full range of tasks, from running productivity software to conducting processor-intensive engineering simulations, while preparing the enterprise for desktop virtualization.

• Refresh OS. Replace an outdated operating system for which support was soon ending.
• Enhance remote management. Improve remote diagnostics and problem resolution for the company’s global fleet of 18,000 desktops and laptops.
• Improve security. Protect data from loss and theft, especially for the growing number of mobile systems.
• Increase performance. Deliver the performance required for a broad range of productivity and engineering tasks.

• Client systems with Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 vPro™ processors. Air Products is refreshing its client fleet with desktop and laptop systems equipped with Intel Core i5 and i7 vPro processors and running Windows 7*. Administrators will manage systems with Intel vPro technology and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager* (SCCM*) software.

Technology results
• Fewer systems sent in for repair. Intel vPro technology can help administrators resolve more issues remotely, avoiding the need for employees to send their computers in for repair.
• Protected data. Using Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) technology with Microsoft BitLocker* encryption can help sustain system performance while encrypting hard drives. Intel vPro technology helps IT stop viruses from reaching the network.

Business value
• Enhanced value. Moving to the latest Intel processors allows users to achieve outstanding performance across a full range of productivity and engineering applications.
