After implementing VDI (Citrix) on 1,500 workstations, our client renewed their trust in Cortex Génie Humain to handle operations and management of this environment.
The client's requirements
The VDI project assisted in transforming 1,500 workstations into virtual workstations. Administrating these virtual stations requires a dedicated team with extensive technical abilities.
The main challenge for Cortex was to build a qualified team that could handle the administration of such a large number of virtual stations while controlling the client’s costs.
Cortex Génie Humain has a specialized VDI platform operations centre comprised of professionals with the experience and certification required to manage these platforms properly. The operations centre ensures surveillance and support (24/7) for the client’s virtual infrastructures while optimizing their performance and availability to always operate at peak performance.
Cortex operations management allows our client’s teams to focus on strategic projects while benefitting from powerful, available, and optimized tools. By trusting a specialized and dedicated team, our client can rest assured that their VDI infrastructure is constantly evolving, which means they are covered by support agreements with the manufacturers involved.

Our client, a large banking institution, did the OTP project (Organizational Transformation Program) during the acquisition of a multinational insurance company’s Canadian operations. The project's goal was to ensure IT service continuity during the transition process.
The client's requirements
The IT challenges in an acquisition as significant as this one required strategic reflection and considerable technical knowledge. Our client trusted Cortex Génie Humain to ensure continued IT services during the transition period.
The main challenge of this mandate was organizing the efficient transition of vendor systems towards those of our client while respecting several regulatory, legal, and technological requirements.
Three strategic advisers from Cortex Génie Humain brought the project to term. They helped negotiate SOWs (Statement of Work) between both companies for all lines of business and provided strategic consulting services based on the very best contracting and IT outsourcing practices. They defined the target organizational model for insurance and IT operations and reviewed IT targets for all consolidated Canadian insurance operations of the firm. They then examined the vendor’s IT projects likely to affect Canadian operations. The team was also responsible for establishing business continuity processes (BCP and DRO) for the transition period.
This project helped our client acquire the vendor’s Canadian insurance operations by guaranteeing IT service continuity.
