Hyundai implements Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform

Hyundai has implemented Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform to support its VMware Virtual Desktop Interface environment as it continues to focus on increasing staff productivity, accelerating workflow and reducing costs.

Hyundai was introduced to Nutanix by its IT services provider, BEarena, said Kawa Farid, Infrastructure Manager, Information and Communication Technology, Hyundai Motor Company Australia.

With more than 50 percent of its 200 staff working in the field, Hyundai has embraced company-wide virtualization to improve workforce productivity.

“Our IT strategy is based on a ‘virtual first’ rule.’ We have two in-house applications in particular that are integral to our business processes – the purchase order system and invoicing, but getting sign-off on individual requests was taking up to 10 days with so many people out of the office on a regular basis,” said Bala Kothandaraman, general manager, Hyundai Motor Company Australia.

Company officials said this would allow mobile workers to have same computing experience whether they were using a smartphone or notebook computer from their car, home or office.
