Remote access software allows access to distributed IT resources, saving time and money

Marshalltown, Iowa—January 2, 2013 — Mechdyne Corporation announced Connection Portal, a web‐based interface that allows everyone in an organization to access computer assets from anywhere within the enterprise. Connection Portal’s ubiquitous access allows users to utilize pooled blades, desk-side work stations, meeting rooms and collaborative work sessions – quickly, easily and securely.

“If accessing all the computer resources in your organization from anywhere could improve and simplify your workflows, then Mechdyne’s Connection Portal is the solution,” said Paris-based Julien Berta, VP Technology and Innovation, for Mechdyne’s Software Division. “Connection Portal is like a keychain that gives you access from everywhere.”

Unlike the traditional set-up where each user is limited by the software on their own desktop or on a conference room’s computer, Mechdyne’s Connection Portal extends the base ‘point‐to‐point’ capability of remote desktop software to an enterprise‐integrated system that collects and manages all the inventory of an organization’s available computers, meeting spaces and people.

“Mechdyne projects that clients will see real savings achieved through this improved utilization of all their computing resources,” said Berta. “We will see Connection Portal result in up to 20 percent less cost of ownership because individual users can simply access their organization’s “library” of computer resources, and only when they need them.”

Because Connection Portal allows “heavy duty” computing resources to be consolidated in one central location, hardware cooling needs are minimized, lowering costs and improving IT efficiencies. The Connection Portal solution also monitors usage, helping organizations better plan for future IT investments.

Connection Portal also promotes effective collaboration and real-time, long-distance knowledge sharing. Because it enhances the effectiveness of meetings and collaboration, Mechdyne anticipates that industries most likely to benefit from use of Connection Portal include energy (oil and gas), engineering and architecture design (CAD), education and research, and large distributed organizations (multinational corporations).

“When the Connection Portal was demonstrated during the Rice University’s Oil & Gas High Performance Computing (HPC) Workshop in March 2012 it created quite a bit of interest,” said Erik Engquist, visualization manager at Rice University in Houston. “The capabilities allow a number of experts to collaborate in real-time, something that will translate into improved decision-making.”
