Ensim Corporation, a provider of web hosting automation, user provisioning and access control software solutions, announced that it recently provided provisioning and management services for Microsoft OCS (Office Communications Server), speeding up deployment to accommodate customers of more than 150,000 seats. The move is being described as North America’s largest single OCS deployment in less than 90 days. Though once delayed, the deployment is on course and Ensim is happy to get things back on track.
Scott Young, Ensim Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, revealed that the deployment of OSC 2007 is often a burden for regulated organizations due the complexities involved with user entitlement policies. He stated that by deploying the Ensim Unify product, a particular customer was able to solve its provisioning and management problems in under 90 days all while enforcing the security and compliance policies demanded by its user base. According to Young, the scalability and efficiency of Ensim Unfiy speaks volume when considering the tremendous size of the deployment it supported.
Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition is a fully integrated, role-based access management tool with the ability to be deployed merely for the OCS platform, or across an organization’s entire unified communications infrastructure. This includes email, instant messaging, collaboration and conferencing. Its built-in OCS Manager enables companies to reap the benefits of a complete unified communications system without the burden of manual provisioning and tedious management. The feature integrates with existing ID management solutions to help organizations leverage the new functionality of OCS without straining their IT resources.
Some of the key features Ensim Unify’s OCS Manager offers include:
– The ability to seamlessly integrate complex provisioning polices
– The ability to support multiple provisioning workflows
– Complete Help Desk support on multiple levels
– Comprehensive logging of system activity and transactions
– The ability to automatically manage manual updates on a daily basis.
David J. Wippich, Ensim Corporation CEO and chairman, noted how the Ensim Unify product can be both a productive and cost effective solution. He stressed that while the ROI which can result from deploying unified communications is substantial, many companies are lost at the deployment stage or find themselves dealing with complicated tasks following deployment. He explained that the Ensim Unify solves the problem by enabling a fast deployment, automating daily management processes and unrivaled interoperability that makes the most of existing policies and investments that can be extended to unified communications applications such as Microsoft Office Communications Server.
