Good case study of BMW deploying 2007 Microsoft Office system and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.
BMW is one of Europe’s most successful motor vehicle manufacturers, employing 100,000 people worldwide and managing 15 production sites in seven countries. Communication and collaboration between project teams and individual employees is central to the company’s success. In early 2006, the company agreed to take part in the Rapid Deployment Program (RDP) for the 2007 Microsoft® Office system and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. BMW employees are now taking advantage of more integrated communication tools to create, share, and store information, and to collaborate with co-workers on projects and business processes more effectively. The company also hopes to reduce administration management, hardware, and software costs by consolidating its messaging servers.
“Our IT administrators can maintain the new Exchange Server 2007 messaging system and get a faster run time, using less server hardware.”
