LEHI, Utah, Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Matrix42, a leading provider of Workplace Management solutions, today unveiled its enhanced Enterprise Manager 2011 for Microsoft SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) to simplify and streamline software rollouts.
Microsoft SCCM forms the centerpiece of client systems management for thousands of IT organizations around the world. However, for the time-consuming and often error-prone process of distributing new or updated software packages across thousands of user desktops, it has some limitations. Matrix42 Enterprise Manager extends the value of Microsoft SCCM helping IT professionals improve the process with greater accuracy and efficiency.
New features include:
- Extended Package Management – new variables simplify deployment by removing the need for multiple packages for different locations.
- Advanced Rollout Management – reduces bandwidth usage by allowing IT to phase rollout downloads with the ability to monitor progress at a macro- and desktop-specific level.
- OS Deployment – unifies management tools by bringing native SCCM OS deployment capabilities into the Enterprise Manager console.
- Optimized Delegation Management – the enhanced Web console provides clearer definitions and controls for user roles and delegation paths.
- Improved Agent UI – an improved user interface helps the end-user understand which new services are available, when rollouts will be implemented and when interaction is required.
"Microsoft SCCM is a powerful tool, but many system administrators are looking for ways to extend the solution to support immediate rollouts, delegation and simplified software delivery," said Oliver Bendig, VP of product management at Matrix42. "Using Matrix42 Enterprise Manager, SCCM becomes more precise, targeted and time- and bandwidth-efficient – a win-win for IT service management and end-user productivity."
