One of the finalists for the Citrix Innovation Award at Citrix Syenergy Berlin is Telecom Italia. Telecom Italia is Italy’s largest provider of telecommunications services, with more than 71,000 employees and a network of 18.5 million fixed and 30.8 million mobile lines. It provides telecommunications services in Italy, Brazil and Argentina. They manage greater than 75,000 devices including desktops, laptops and thin clients. Telecom Italia wanted to update 20,000 aging desktop computers used by call center and network operators to Windows 7, and find an easier, cost-effective way to support network-connected employees and dealers.

The solution Telecom Italia chose for this challenge – Citrix and Microsoft. Watch the video below to learn more about why the combination of Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and Microsoft System Center management was the right solution for Telecom Italia.
