Willem Bagchus is a Messaging and Collaboration Specialist at United Bank. Willem had been looking for a solution just like Cimitra, due to his experience working in enterprise data centers. Without Cimitra, he was facing the need to develop an enterprise control panel just like Cimitra.

“When you are managing a number of servers, it’s very time consuming to perform the daily routine tasks unless you have some centralized control panel where you can launch the processes as needed. “, Bagchus said.

United Bank has successfully implemented a Microsoft based hybrid cloud infrastructure. Many different groups have many different kinds of daily processes that need to be run. With Cimitra, which supports Active Directory groups, control menus can be created to suit each groups’ needs without giving rights to the individual servers. This makes Cimitra a huge time saver and it won’t compromise security.
