De Fryske Marren is a municipality in the province of Friesland, the Netherlands. The municipality is a merger between several other municipalities and has approximately 51,678 inhabitants.
Employees of the municipality of De Fryske Marren now work on a completely new, modern, fast ICT environment that is independent of time, place, and device. In addition, more effective management gives the IT department more time for innovation. A flexible workspace concept based on Windows 10 combined with Liquit.
Migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10 while saving time with packaging of applications and implementing an DTAP (development, testing, acceptance, production) process. All while simplifying overall IT management.
Liquit Workspace with Liquit Release & Patch Management were implemented. The team was able to migrate to Windows 10 but also switched to a different type of image, based on the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, and set up the update mechanism differently with Windows Server Update Services. In the final step they jointly started to get all applications technically and functionally ready for the new platform. The project was completed within nine months, from the first implementation designs to going live. Well in time before the end date of Windows 7 support.
