It has really helped with productivity. We have three people who can manage 32,000 machines.

Business Challenge story

"Some of the challenges with managing so many endpoints is that they’re all different operating systems, they’re in heterogeneous environments. Each unit does its own thing. Everything is very different, and there’s no central governance for anything."


Using IBM BigFix software, Penn State's IT team can manage all of its endpoints at once, from a single environment.


Using the solution, the team sees the potential to save up to USD$300,000 a year.
