Responsive System Management with Tablets, Windows* 8

Unipol Financial Group finds potential for more responsive system management with Intel Inside®, touch-enabled tablets with Microsoft Windows 8*

Unipol Financial Group SpA (UFG) is one of the leading financial groups in the Italian insurance and banking sector. With more than six million customers and investors and over 7,000 retail outlets, it has collected around EUR 8.9 billion in premiums. The group also operates a range of banking services.

With 7,500 employees spread across the country, UFG’s IT team needs to keep a lot of users, across a number of member businesses, happy. Many employees need high performance from their computing devices to cope with mission-critical applications and customer-facing processes. However, the tradeoff for high performance was often a limited battery life. The ideal device for the Unipol Group is one that offers good performance, as well as a battery that will last the entire work day.

The organization took the opportunity to evaluate a Samsung tablet* and an Ultrabook™ device, both powered by Intel® Core™ i5 processors and running the Windows 8 operating system. Besides the devices’ portability and battery life, a fundamental consideration was their ability to align smoothly with UFG’s security policies, such as joining the company domain, being easily updatable with security patches and enabling the central management of antivirus efforts. The organization found that the Windows-based devices met these needs in a way no other tablet device has yet done, enabling it to be completely compliant with minimal administrative effort.
