“In essence, Scense enables students and staff to get on doing what they do best: learning and teaching.” – University
Scense has been solving it challenges within educational institutions since the very start. Even a brief look at a university or school IT infrastructure shows that it management spends most of its time on daily maintenance rather than developing innovations or making system improvements, and the reasons are very clear.
All potential software incompatibility issues are eliminated by using Scense Adaptive Installer, our unique installation technology. There’s no need for application repackaging or other system adjustments – ever. Educational applications bought on Monday are available for students on Monday. Combine this with Scense’s in-depth integration with all common application virtualization techniques and classes need never be frustrated by broken applications.
Scense delivers applications to end-users on demand. When an application is not yet available, it’s installed, streamed or activated on the workstation the end-user is working on at the time. By using Scense’s adaptive Installer or some application virtualization technique, Scense guarantees the stability of the desktop in use.
Scense is designed and developed with a single-minded ambition, to empower the user and retain control. Administrators can provide fully functional desktops to end-users while still delivering the agreed service levels. When desktops are managed in real time and users are empowered to solve IT problems themselves, the end-user remains productive with no limitations on functionality. Scense is ready for Generation Y and Z.
The Scense client functionality runs on machines that are not managed by the administrator. Students can use educational applications and other IT resources on their own laptops or home PC’s, within the boundaries set by the IT department. Educational applications that should only run within the school’s perimeter simply won’t run outside.
“Last year, we needed to provision a new ROC Mondriaan building and we were looking at four days to complete the go-live. Using Scense User Workspace Management, the entire building was ready in one day.”
Peter Cornet and his team were wearing out the soles of their shoes managing the 7,000 endpoint estate to the ROC Mondriaan education institute in The Netherlands. Regular physical on-site interventions, manual imaging and provisioning, and other tasks meant this IT manager was almost overwhelmed by the constantly changing, high maintenance end-users and 450 applications. In response, ROC Mondriaan partnered with Scense B.V., one of the Netherlands’ fastest-growing providers of workspace management solutions. The Scense User Workspace Management solution eliminates complexity within the institute’s environment, by managing and delivering applications and desktops transparently together.
