Then a high complexity of client systems is almost two-thirds of the companies. Derived from the consulting practice Centracon has identified various symptoms, which the problematic relationships reveal: a high administration overhead by the wide range of basic and special applications on the Workstation systems continuously. Updates and migrations to the decentralized systems regularly cause bottlenecks at the RessourcenStationare and mobile workers can not flexible enough with the required applications are supplied. Reorganizations cause very extensive, time-consuming and costly projects. Technically heterogeneous landscaped sites increase the requirements for the distributed access.
There are limitations on the flexible scaling of local resources. The lack of efficient central control international locations. The growing security and business continuity requirements are not sufficiently taken into account in terms of infrastructure. The integration of suppliers, customers and other external partners is technically inadequate. A standardization and flexibility comport is difficult with the existing infrastructure concepts.

Also the way could be there without large investments perform, because the company could relying on existing techniques and skills. Although the idea of smart a forward-looking infrastructure creates client architecture which, whose development this requires no high investments”, says Gallant. Rather, the heart of is the overarching concept for the innovative orientation of the infrastructure.
