Urs Lehmann

Head of Voice Services

As rapidly developing need for iOS devices, iPhone and iPads we needed a Central Management Solution to deploy and manage these devices. With Apple Lion Server available with inbuilt capability of handling iOS and Mac's it was the best way to go. igeeks proved themselves capable of providing the IS department of ABB Switzerland with knowledge to achieve this.

Apple Mobile Device Management Solution

ABB (www.abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 130,000 people. ABB Switzerland with headquarter in Baden employs about 6'600 people.

Initial Position

We were activating iOS devices individually and had little control over how to manage these devices, it was also not possible to know which device was owned by which user. Moreover there were problems with security and consistency of the devices.

Solution

igeeks provided us with know-how to successfully deploy MDM (Mobile Device Management) with Apple Lion Server. With MDM we can centrally monitor and manage all the iOS devices in our enterprise.

Advantages and uses

MDM gives us the capability to manage all the devices keeping them in line with our company IT policy. Users have no interaction whatsoever to worry about the security protocols. It makes easy to locate what devices are owned by which users. If any device is lost we can remotely wipe it to protect data integrity.
