- $14M project
- 2-year project
- A dedicated Cortex Génie Humain team of 19 consultants
- Cortex Génie Humain is responsible for managing the client’s VDI environment operations
Within the scope of the Endeavor project, a large national airline company trusted Cortex for their VDI platform application packaging. The project intended to transform 3,000 workstations into virtual stations (VDI). The transformation affected our client’s four lines of business: airport, call centre, cargo and maintenance. The catalogue to be analyzed and virtualized included 750 applications. Cortex is now responsible for managing the client’s VDI environment operations.
Our client did not have the internal resources and skills required to complete the project on their own. The project’s specificity, technical complexity and scope required a dedicated and multidisciplinary team striving to deliver high-quality projects on time.
The company chose to rely on Cortex Génie Humain largely due to the team’s quality. Our team is comprised of professionals certified in Citrix, VMware and Microsoft and/or are renowned in the fields of VDI architecture, large-scale project management or non-compatible application integration.
Today, Cortex Génie Humain still works closely with the manufacturers and software developers involved.
After a few months of delivery, it became clear that many of the project’s aspects were not adequately covered by our client’s other partners. Cortex then took control of most aspects of delivery in order to successfully complete the mandate and ensure that all of the client’s requirements were met. Cortex Génie Humain adapted quickly and efficiently and reorganized the teams as needed.
Cortex Génie Humain participated in all phases of the project. The client relied on Cortex to ensure proper project governance, management, automation and application installations in the virtual sessions (APP-V packaging) and to ensure proper application integration (including non-compatible applications) in the VDI sessions, but also to ensure technical leadership within integration teams.
Cortex Génie Humain resources also supported the client’s internal teams.
The new virtualized environment increased information system security while reducing material and maintenance-related costs and lowering energy consumption. It also helped optimize the deployment of new application functionalities.
Following the project’s success, the client chose Cortex to ensure the proper operations of their VDI environment (cf. achievement: VDI (Citrix) operations on 1,500 workstations). Indeed, Cortex Génie Humain has its own specialized VDI platform operations centre.
