BitTitan Announces Standalone Desktop Deployment Solution to Automate Configuration of Outlook Clients to Office 365

Automated Desktop Configuration Solution Delivers Flexibility and Optimized Project Management for Any Company, Regardless of Size

KIRKLAND, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- BitTitan, the IT change automation expert for cloud-based migration and onboarding, today announced its standalone BitTitan Desktop Deployment solution to enable quick and easy, automated configuration of Outlook® clients to Microsoft® Office 365. From SMBs and enterprises to partners, consultants and resellers, the solution's flexibility, scalability and optimized project management capabilities save significant time, money and resources.

BitTitan Desktop Deployment automates the configuration of existing Outlook clients to connect to Office 365 accounts. Previously available only as a part of BitTitan's end-to-end Office 365 onboarding solution, UserActivation™, BitTitan Desktop Deployment can now be used on its own as a company's desktop configuration agent as well as with BitTitan's email migration solution, MigrationWiz. This gives companies the flexibility to choose the right product and process for the right project, including Office 365 greenfield deployments.

With BitTitan Desktop Deployment, companies can configure Outlook through customized end-user emails or through group policy, eliminating the need for the time and labor-intensive setup of each individual desktop. This is ideal for companies with a remote or disperse workforce, eliminating the need travel to each location to configure individual desktops. By fully automating the configuration of Outlook, Desktop Deployment enables a unique end-user experience, requiring minimal time investment and no downtime. Users are simply prompted to click a link, copy and paste an authentication code and establish a new password.

Through a web-based portal, companies and IT administrators can manage and optimize the entire Outlook configuration project. Users can access comprehensive status reports, review project errors, set up batch deployment and view who has, or has not, installed the desktop configuration agent or completed the configuration. BitTitan Desktop Deployment also works with any Office 365 migration strategy and simplifies POP migration. For added security, Desktop Deployment creates a new profile rather than repurposing the existing profile.

"Making the shift to Office 365 can already be a complex, risky, time-consuming and expensive process -- nobody should worry about whether or not their email is coming with them," said Geeman Yip, CEO and founder of BitTitan. "With BitTitan Desktop Deployment, we're not only making Outlook configuration quick and easy by removing the need to manually configure each desktop, we're also making it available for any company, whether it has ten or a thousand users."

Desktop Deployment is now available as a pilot with general availability slated for July 2013.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
