Italian ICT specialist Project Informatica needs the latest mobile computing devices—combining all the best elements of performance, security and usability—to show off to customers and keep its employees productive in the office or on the road. After rigorous testing, it chose the Samsung Slate* 700T, a tablet based on the second-generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor and the Windows* 8 operating system.


“The touch-based tablet powered by the Intel Core i5 processor and Windows 8 is strategic for our sales team," explained Alberto Ghisleni, managing director at Project Informatica.  "It allows them to save time while having a more appealing and interactive graphic interface for their most commonly-used applications.”

To be sure it was recommending the most appropriate and up-to-date hardware for its customers, the company evaluated a number of mobile computing devices including the Lenovo Twist* convertible Ultrabook™ powered by Intel® Core™ i5 processor and running  Microsoft Windows* 8.

“[The Ultrabook] demonstrated optimum performance, with fantastic speed when starting it up and opening our applications," explained Héctor Ruiz-Martín, general manager of Digital Text. "It was really fluid with elements like Flash* and this was impressive. The device that I tested had the power of a desktop PC and it was clear that Flash was very responsive.”

Client strategies for the U.S. Government must be affordable and readily deployable while meeting the most stringent requirements for data security and operational efficiency. At the request of a customer, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) engaged with Intel and Citrix to create SecureView*, a solution that expands on capabilities in Citrix XenClient* and 2nd- and 3rd-generation Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 vPro™ processors to meet these requirements. SecureView, which has been deployed at more than a dozen federal agencies, is less vulnerable to modification or corruption than traditional software-based security solutions. It also provides high performance for mission-critical collaboration and saves the government tens of millions of dollars in total cost of ownership (TCO) for every 10,000 users to which it is deployed.


“SecureView is vital to the nation’s security," explained Dr. Ryan J. Durante, chief of cross-domain solutions and innovation for AFRL. "It improves the productivity and effectiveness of intelligence analysts and other key users while saving millions of dollars. The use of COTS technologies and the close teamwork and commitment from Intel and Citrix allowed us to deliver the solution within months.”

The Spanish Olympic Committee (COE) is responsible for Spain’s participation in the Olympic Games. It needed to move from a dedicated to a virtual IT infrastructure that would let employees work from their desktops and communicate with the Madrid office anytime and from anywhere. COE implemented a virtual infrastructure based on computers powered by Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors.

 

“Our people travel far and wide and our operations can be complex,” explained Manuel Pastrana, IT manager for COE. “Thanks to Ermestel and Intel® and Citrix technology, a template was implemented that provided users with the same business profile, which can be centrally updated and used from any location. This allows them to retain their personal profiles on their devices while using a virtualized system for COE. It has cut costs, made management far easier and introduced far greater flexibility.”
