As the business grew, the client accumulated a huge IT infrastructure including a large user base of over 80,000 desktops, an equally large agent network, and more than 2,00 applications running on as many servers. Managing these applications and installing patches on the workstations and servers proved to be a humongous task for the client’s internal IT team.
