An overview of the week in deals in the Irish technology sector.

Ergo joins Citrix and Microsoft V-Alliance

Irish IT company Ergo has joined the Microsoft and Citrix V-Alliance for virtual desktop delivery. The company says desktop virtualisation is key at a time when firms don’t have the budget to refresh their desktops.

Virtual desktops are also a way for organisations to future proof their IT environment. Subsequent product updates are carried out centrally with none of the complexity associated with having to refresh PCs on a user-by-user basis.

Security and licence compliance are easier to manage, while end users benefit from a virtual desktop that is optimised for the applications they need to access.

BT selects Irish software to support global UC strategy

Telecoms giant BT has selected Dublin-based telecoms management software company Soft-ex’s technology to become a key component in the BT Hosted IP Telephony global strategy.

According to BT: “Soft-ex has a long-standing track record within BT for VAS and revenue generation with joint clients, such as Nationwide, Alliance & Leicester, BAE, Olympics 2012, N3, Shire, HBOS and Royal Mail Group”.

Soft-ex will provide their telecommunications expense and usage management solutions on the Hosted IPT platform, to assist BT clients to reduce telecom costs, gain centralised visibility and improve overall performance.
