The essential guide to IT transformation

EDS has adopted Network Computing Device's ThinStar Windows-based Terminals and Explora network terminals for use in its thin-client corporate systems. The devices will be supported by EDS Network Computing Services and deployed within heterogeneous networks. NCD is the producer of Intel's 'official' lean client reference design, and has been consolidating its position as one of the major players in the market, neatly balancing itself somewhere in the middle, between NCs and WBTs. Earlier this week the company said it was to buy Tektronix's thin client operations. "EDS Network Computing Services provides easy access to consistent versions of applications and real-time data so every networked team member can work more effectively, regardless of their location, platform, or device," said David Endicott, vice president EDS Distributed Systems Management. "The NCD thin client families are good examples of the simple desktop devices that facilitate centralised management and control of networked applications used to benefit our clients." Late thin client news: Yesterday Citrix's Vegas customer base extended next door, to Caesar's Palace. The company has now succeeded in implementing thin client systems in two of the major Vegas casino-resort operations, and it can now be only a matter of time before it makes it down the Strip as far as Ballys. In a retaliatory strike, Dell yesterday said the Citrix systems in the new Bellagio were using scads of Dell server. ®
