Within Rabobank International Eastern has worked on several projects for implementation and improvement of the global IT-workspace. Advising, implementations and support were daily tasks.
The projects I worked on:
- Windows 8 pilot
The Windows 8 pilot consisted of a study and pilot project to promote the ability of working in different places also called mobile work place. The mobile work place can either be done in the office or at the location of a customer. Depending on the job profile of the end user a desirable solution is needed. Mobile working outside an office also requires a more secure environment. In the end Eastern delivered a working Windows 8 platform which supported various tablets and hybrids, divided into different job profiles.
- Virtual Desktops
Many organizations want to move to Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to be independent of the physical location of the end user. VDI give new challenges, particularly in the area of performance (speed) of the area. These challenges are investigated and result in optimization of the solution.
- Advising and researching new technology
Eastern did a number of studies including one on a new Virtual Private Network technology which needed to be safe and easy to use, but it has also done studies regarding the improvement of the users experiences when they have flex seating in the office.
- Packaging of applications for Windows 7 & 8 and solving application compatibility issues on Windows 7
Migrations are always a challenge for large companies. All applications need to work on the new platform and all the problems must be solved. Eastern packaged many applications for Rabobank and solved the compatibility issues with Windows 7.
- Expert role in solving problems with big impact
IT issues are often complex, because they cannot be pointed to a specific problem. Therefore solutions are often not easy to implement. Eastern has a lot of experience on both pin-pointing and implementing solutions to solve problems.
