WorkSpace iQ is a great example of how NHS Trusts can simply and accurately identify their software estates by having better visibility of the entire desktop and application environment
A time-limited version of award-winning Centrix WorkSpace iQ™ will enable NHS Trusts to quantify installed Microsoft applications and determine actual usage
Newbury, UK – 26th September 2011 - Centrix Software, a provider of unified end-user computing solutions, has announced it will be providing a free-of-charge analytics solution that delivers software install data and usage reporting to all NHS Trusts in the UK for a limited period. WorkSpace iQ for NHS quickly identifies which users have access to which applications, how frequently these are used and for how long. It includes new reports specifically developed to enable NHS Trusts to understand their Microsoft application usage, providing all the necessary intelligence for determining application license requirements, and rationalising IT infrastructure and costs. *
“The NHS is currently facing unprecedented challenges, with news over the last few days of plans to dismantle the 11bn (GBP) NHS National Project for IT (NPfIT), as well as continuing debate and concern over the health and social care bill and debt revelations resulting from the PFI scheme,” said Lewis Gee, vice president sales and marketing, Centrix Software. “NHS trusts now have greater freedom and indeed necessity to select and manage the software that will serve them best. WorkSpace iQ for NHS can assist NHS trusts in making more informed decisions about their technology plans, while making cost savings and efficiency improvements across their IT environment.”
Available immediately, qualifying organisations can access the time-limited version of the WorkSpace iQ for NHS solution from www.centrixsoftware.com/NHSOffer and get a free-of-charge license key for full use until the 31st October 2011.
With WorkSpace iQ NHS Trusts can:
• View specific Microsoft application reports highlighting installed and used applications
• Automatically match installs, applications, packages, licences, users and devices
• Provide a complete inventory of hardware and operating systems
• Accurately count all of the software installed
• Show and match the actual usage of all applications across their desktop estate
• Show and match usage for users, applications, devices and network connectivity
• Present all of this in easy to understand and actionable reports
Using WorkSpace iQ, NHS Trusts can reduce the time and cost of assessing application environments by providing empirical data on actual application usage against license count. Centrix WorkSpace iQ provides deep visibility on application usage patterns so that more informed decisions can be made about software requirements in faster time, which can in turn generate significant cost savings.
“Developed on Microsoft technology, WorkSpace iQ is a great example of how NHS Trusts can simply and accurately identify their software estates by having better visibility of the entire desktop and application environment,” stated Mark Smith, Director Healthcare, Life Sciences & Health Solutions Group Microsoft Limited.
* At 31 October 2011, NHS Trusts will have the option to subscribe to WorkSpace iQ, which provides deep, rich insight into application usage, enabling detailed planning of many IT initiatives, or to use the free WorkSpace Discovery solution, which provides software and hardware inventory.
