One of the world’s leading consulting, technology, outsourcing, and professional services organizations, Capgemini operates in 40 countries. Capgemini Netherlands decided its customers would benefit from Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT), a component of the 2nd-generation Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processor for remote management of PC fleets. But many of its customers were hesitant to adopt the technology because of provisioning complexities such as the need for tight integration into the customer network.
To show customers the value of Intel AMT and persuade them to engage, Capgemini carried out a proof of concept on a host-based Intel AMT configuration to demonstrate there was no need for complex back-end systems. The proof of concept revealed that a host-based configuration is far easier than traditional provisioning, with the flexibility to easily move from client to full admin control mode providing full Intel AMT functionality. Now Capgemini Netherlands expects the number of customers who request host-based configuration proofs of concepts to climb from 10 to about 40 percent.
“We now believe that this flexible migration path, from client control mode to admin control mode, ensures that Intel AMT host-based configuration will become a valuable option for customers,” said Arnold Verhoeven, senior IT architect for Capgemini Netherlands.
