The Challenge

IG Group were challenged with managing their growing user estate and were required to streamline operations whilst provisioning new users. IG Group were looking for a process to take a Service Request via their Service Desk, automate the account creation and setup of a users’ VDI workspace.


PowerON were engaged as the experts in Automation to support IG Group in leveraging Microsoft Automation Solutions; Microsoft System Centre Orchestrator. PowerON created a set of automation routines based on a request logged via the service portal. This automated the creation of the users’ accounts and provisioned the required VDI infrastructure in IG Groups VMWare estate.


IG Group were able to benefit from:

  • Reduced Operational Overheads
  • Significantly accelerated New User on-boarding
  • High quality new starter experience
