An Overview of SOE Design and Development

0 Comment

The modern business environment today is an incredibly complex network of corporate IT systems that have only one single goal – to support management decision-making and increase operational efficiencies. And helping to simplify this process is SOE or Standard Operating Environment that goes a long way to make systems predictable and minimise ongoing support and management costs.

If you face the following issues at your workplace, an SOE is what you should implement.

  • Do you have to deal with different problems at various workstations just because there is no standard configuration?
  • Do you want to give your employees the freedom to log in and work from any workstation on your network?
  • Do you have to spend a lot of time and money setting right the same problems on different workstations?
  • Do you want to reduce expenses and time spent on adding new workstations to your network?

Even if your answer is in the affirmative to one or more of the given problems, your company is an ideal candidate for implementing SOE.

You can implement SOE for your workstations, IT devices and servers. Professionals and technicians will work with you, analyse your systems and existing network environment and will evaluate the required functionality from your IT systems. Based on this analysis, an SOE will be structured and implemented that will best match your needs.

There are various packages for SOE software implementation depending on the size of the organisation. For medium to large businesses that need SOE the most because of the extent of their IT networks, the structure is taken care of through management software such as Novell ZenWorks, Altiris and HP OpenView. Get in touch with the experts to know more about the software package that will help you the most and will blend seamlessly with your existing systems.

Administrators typically apply SOE as a standard disk image for mass implementation in multiple computers within an organisation. It can take the form of a custom configuration, service packs and software updates or standardised applications and may be applied to servers, laptops, desktops, and mobile devices.

The main advantage of SOE in a company is that there is a reduction in time for maintaining, configuring, deploying, supporting and managing computers within a network. Service providers or in-house IT department can quickly correct problems in existing computers or install new ones. A standardised and automated solution goes a long way to support a known and expected environment.
