Hagemeyer Chooses Ceedo Virtualization Technology to Reduce Enterprise Costs and Streamline Day-to-Day Operations

ROSH-HAAYIN, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - July 9, 2008) - Ceedo Technologies, a leader in application virtualization solutions, announced today that international business-to-business distributor, Hagemeyer, has selected Ceedo Enterprise as a migration platform to its new software architecture through virtualization, saving IT administration valuable time and money.

Hagemeyer UK, a leading international value added business-to-business distribution company based in the United Kingdom, had made the decision to upgrade their entire software architecture. One critical aspect of the project was to be able to allow the new architecture to run in parallel with existing applications, which are still in use by many employees. To solve this problem, the company chose Ceedo Enterprise to virtualize these existing applications and make them available to employees without interference to the new architecture. The flexibility of the Ceedo solution allowed a lightning fast project timeline -- including implementation, testing, approval and launch -- for about 100 locations in less than a month.

"Traditionally, such a need could not have been met and would have required expensive compromises in hardware, software as well as user experience," said Roger Baker, technical support analyst at Hagemeyer. "With the Ceedo Enterprise solution, we were able to meet this challenge and provide our employees with an integrated and seamless solution at breakneck speed."
