IGEL Technology, a global provider of innovative and powerful thin client solutions, was looking to transition from a hardware manufacturer to a software provider. The company aimed to deliver complete solutions for software-defined endpoints, facilitating secure access to virtual and cloud-based working environments. IGEL's IT Manager, Tim-Oliver Felsen, believed that the future of IT workstations would be heavily reliant on cloud services due to their user-friendliness, flexibility, cost benefits, and efficient management. The company had previously relied on an external service provider that operated a Citrix infrastructure for most of its IT users. However, IGEL wanted to take the next step and transform its virtual workplaces into real Cloud Workspaces.
About The Customer
IGEL Technology is a global company that has been offering innovative and powerful thin client solutions since 1989. The company has over 17,000 customers who use its products in their IT infrastructure. Over the years, IGEL has expanded its focus beyond slim terminals and has transitioned from a hardware manufacturer to a software provider. The company now delivers complete solutions for software-defined endpoints. With IGEL OS as the next-generation edge operating system, IGEL facilitates secure access to virtual and cloud-based working environments. The company is also adopting a 'Cloud First' strategy within its own organisation.
IGEL decided to combine Citrix Cloud and Microsoft Azure for migrating its infrastructure. The company was convinced by the technological possibilities offered by these platforms. Citrix's HDX technology provided high-performance access to applications with intensive graphics, even under challenging network conditions. Moreover, Citrix workloads could be run efficiently and in a highly scalable way in Microsoft Azure. The Citrix Cloud architecture concept was also a perfect match for IGEL's requirements. In the Citrix cloud model, Citrix is responsible for administration and operation of the management level, ensuring that all core components are always up-to-date. IGEL was able to seamlessly integrate its existing SAP environment, which continues to run in its data centre, as well as new SaaS offers and cloud services into the Citrix workspace. The cloud migration was assisted by SVA System Vertrieb Alexander GmbH, a computer retailer and a Citrix and Microsoft partner.

IoT System for Tunnel Construction
The Zenitaka Corporation ('Zenitaka') has two major business areas: its architectural business focuses on structures such as government buildings, office buildings, and commercial facilities, while its civil engineering business is targeted at structures such as tunnels, bridges and dams. Within these areas, there presented two issues that have always persisted in regard to the construction of mountain tunnels. These issues are 'improving safety" and "reducing energy consumption". Mountain tunnels construction requires a massive amount of electricity. This is because there are many kinds of electrical equipment being used day and night, including construction machinery, construction lighting, and ventilating fan. Despite this, the amount of power consumption is generally not tightly managed. In many cases, the exact amount of power consumption is only ascertained when the bill from the power company becomes available. Sometimes, corporations install demand-monitoring equipment to help curb the maximum power demanded. However, even in these cases, the devices only allow the total volume of power consumption to be ascertained, or they may issue warnings to prevent the contracted volume of power from being exceeded. In order to tackle the issue of reducing power consumption, it was first necessary to obtain an accurate breakdown of how much power was being used in each particular area. In other words, we needed to be able to visualize the amount of power being consumed. Safety, was also not being managed very rigorously. Even now, tunnel construction sites often use a 'name label' system for managing entry into the work site. Specifically, red labels with white reverse sides that bear the workers' names on both sides are displayed at the tunnel work site entrance. The workers themselves then flip the name label to the appropriate side when entering or exiting from the work site to indicate whether or not they are working inside the tunnel at any given time. If a worker forgets to flip his or her name label when entering or exiting from the tunnel, management cannot be performed effectively. In order to tackle the challenges mentioned above, Zenitaka decided to build a system that could improve the safety of tunnel construction as well as reduce the amount of power consumed. In other words, this new system would facilitate a clear picture of which workers were working in each location at the mountain tunnel construction site, as well as which processes were being carried out at those respective locations at any given time. The system would maintain the safety of all workers while also carefully controlling the electrical equipment to reduce unnecessary power consumption. Having decided on the concept, our next concern was whether there existed any kind of robust hardware that would not break down at the construction work site, that could move freely in response to changes in the working environment, and that could accurately detect workers and vehicles using radio frequency identification (RFID). Given that this system would involve many components that were new to Zenitaka, we decided to enlist the cooperation of E.I.Sol Co., Ltd. ('E.I.Sol') as our joint development partner, as they had provided us with a highly practical proposal.
