the global leader in IT Efficiency software, today announced a new
distribution and services relationship with Long

commitment to maximizing joint customers' existing investments in
Microsoft (News - Alert) System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr).
Long View has a unique Windows
7 deployment offering called Windows®
7 Program Office. As part of the Program Office, Long View offers
organizations in North America a readiness assessment, which gives a
high-level understanding of existing Windows

need near real-time installations and want to minimize requests to the
IT helpdesk, saving $40 on average per request. The IT department
maintains the control, but this approach gives users the freedom and
flexibility to schedule their own Windows
7 migration at a time that suits them, as well as selecting which
applications they want to migrate over to the new OS.

delivers OS images across the WAN to thousands of PCs and servers day
or night. It does this without the need for branch servers or
desk-side visits, which enables cost savings through server
consolidation and reduced administrative overheads.
7 uptake in the business community is today one of the highest
profile and most challenging IT projects for organizations," says Sumir
Karayi, CEO, 1E. "Deployment across large, distributed organizations can
be a long, complex process and an expensive task, given the frequency
and size of OS and software updates. Our strong relationship with Long
View will simplify that challenge for companies and provide significant
cost and time savings."
"Understanding the principles and best practices of a successful Windows
7 deployment helps IT departments save time, save money, and most
importantly, improve overall business productivity of their user
community," comments Paul Krowchuk, North American Practice Director,
Microsoft Services at Long View.
"We are pleased to forge this relationship with 1E. Together, we have a
powerful range of solutions that can help our joint customers reduce the
risks and cost of an OS
deployment. 1E solutions have added significant value and
differentiation to our Windows
7 deployment capabilities," adds Krowchuk.
Long View is also looking to incorporate 1E's Efficient IT solutions
into its software

immediately identifies and accurately quantifies software
waste. It presents a rationalized inventory of installed
applications, license costs and where installations are unused, giving
customers the information they need to automatically reclaim

believe that 1E adds significant value here with AppClarity.
Giving organizations the data they need to better prepare them for a
software license audit is a valuable proposition for our customers,"
