deploying software and applications

Introduction

The Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs (DRAC) Pays de la Loire is present on 5 different sites (one site per department). These 5 sites are managed by Johann Leclercq, DSI of the DRAC which depends on the central DSI of the Ministry of Culture. Johann needs efficient tools to optimize the management of his assets. Johann had a very time-consuming problem: the deployment of software on his five sites.

140 administered stations

5 locations

1 sysadmin

Enjeux 

La DRAC des Pays de la Loire est composée de 5 sites différents (un site par département). Pour maintenir à jour son parc applicatif, Johann ne peut pas procéder manuellement car cela lui prendrait trop de temps. La solution de déploiement par défaut du Ministère de la Culture est OCS Inventory NG couplé avec GLPI, mais après quelques années d’utilisation Johann ne trouvait pas la solution assez efficace. Trop lourde d’utilisation, pas facile à prendre en main, Johann cherchait donc une autre solution.

Solutions

  • Implementation of the WAPT solution
  • Complete training on the software
  • Annual support on package creation

Benefits

Easy to use:The use of WAPT is made very easy by the use of a centralized management console. This console allows you to supervise your entire fleet and perform all necessary actions from one machine.

– Fast package design:With WAPT, Johann was able to make his packages simply. No more need to use the editor for simple packages. We trained him in python for package creation, and Johann can be self-sufficient on developing and deploying packages of all kinds.

– Few deployment limitations:WAPT deploys scripts written in python, which allows Johann to deploy not only software but also configurations. He can parameterize his software before deploying it to homogenize his fleet and respect his security standards.

 

Results

  • 1 happy systems and network administrator
