Wyse Technology, the global leader in thin computing and client virtualization, announced that La Perla, one of the world's leading luxury clothing designers, selected IBM and Wyse to help improve its desktop capabilities and cut energy and IT costs with the use of IBM's Smart Business Desktop Cloud solution.

Cloud computing can give end-users easy access to the critical information they need remotely, from various devices, including desktops and thin clients, virtually anywhere. IBM helps organizations benefit from this model with desktop services that are designed to enable end-users that have network-attached PCs and thin clients to access applications and data through a centrally managed computing environment.

“Today more than ever, enterprises need an affordable, reliable and efficient way to deploy and manage desktop infrastructures,” says Jan Jackman, Vice President, End User Services & Cloud Infrastructure, IBM Global Technology Services. “Using IBM's desktop cloud service, La Perla is realizing improved end user services and significant cost reductions.”

As a leading fashion company, La Perla needed a flexible and agile desktop solution to meet new and changing business demands, while also reducing its overall IT spending. By working with IBM, La Perla is now operating Wyse virtual clients, with the flexibility of adding more, on its private desktop cloud solution. As a result, La Perla is benefiting from 50 percent cost reduction in support and operational costs, 85 percent reduction in energy costs and a cost avoidance of almost $100,000 by deployment of new Wyse clients.

“La Perla's growing business calls for more IT flexibility, scalability and security,” said Gianluca Guidotti ICT Director of La Perla. “Using IBM's desktop cloud solution, combined with Wyse's clients and virtualization software, we are able to realize those benefits, plus be more economical as our business demands change.”

IBM and Wyse have joined forces to help clients leverage the power of cloud computing to foster collaboration and innovation across a desktop cloud environment. By combining IBM's desktop cloud services and Wyse Technology's thin computing and client virtualization strengths, these companies are delivering customers a higher-quality user experience, with greater reliability and lower total cost of ownership.

“We enable our customers to realize tremendous economic and business benefits from our client virtualization hardware and software solutions,” said Maryam Alexandrian, Senior VP of World Wide Sales & Channels for Wyse Technology. “Our alliance with IBM allows us to rapidly deliver high-quality and highly-reliable solutions in support of IBM's desktop cloud offerings.”
