Northampton University

End User Compute & Datacenter Modernisation

Customer Need

The University of Northampton is a public university based in Northampton, Northamptonshire, England. It was formed in 1999 by the amalgamation of a number of training colleges and gained full university status as The University of Northampton in 2005.

The Challenge

The University of Northampton required a Service Delivery Partner to design and implement a solution to deliver a high quaility management platform for their on-premises estate, whist managing budgets and meeting deadlines. Northampton University also required management of End User Devices as well as monitoring over their current Server Estate. Both of which were required to intergrate into a Service Desk Solution for quicker and easier estate management.


PowerON designed a solution that leveraged PowerON’s Fastrack Packages to deliver various components of System Center to meet the requirements of Northampton University. PowerON’s engagement provided a comprehensive suite of tools and solutions that would enable Northampton to have greater control and visibility of their estate,  whist also maximising the efficiency of their IT Teams; by integrating the System Center components to one another and adding a layer of automation.

The Monitoring and Managing Platform consisted of the following:

– System Center Configuration Manager

– System Center Operations Manager

– System Center Service Manager

– System Center Orchestrator

– Center Data Protection Manager


The benefits of the implemented solution are primarily based around the reduced time required to install and configure the components of the System Center Suite. By utilising the PowerON Fastrack Packages the deployment time was greatly reduced and more effort was in turn focused on the upskilling and enablement of Northampton University’s IT Team to effectively utilise the newly implemented solution.
