With the growing changes in the workplace and web environment Calgary Economic Development needed to transition from a Sun Ray thin client system. After investigating the needs, a Windows 7 workstation solution, deployed from a central image, was determined to be the best solution. Deployment of all workstations and user transition was completed quickly and with little user interruption. Since the completion of the initial project other initiatives have been implemented including a SharePoint 2010 intranet portal, kiosk computing center and server upgrades.
Beyond the initial work completed Calgary Economic Development has continued to push value form its IT systems. Working with Northern Backup they had Windows 8, Lync 2013, Office 2013 and SharePoint 2013 fully installed and adopted with in 6 months of the products release.
