When real estate advisory firm HFF spun off from a parent company, it inherited a disjointed IT environment. The company standardized on Dell Latitude laptops and Dell OptiPlex desktop computers because flexible configuration of the Dell systems enables HFF to provide the right computer for every end user. HFF also standardized on Dell PowerEdge servers and rolled out a Microsoft Hyper-V-based virtual platform on PowerEdge servers, Dell EqualLogic storage and Dell PowerConnect switches. IT staff use a Dell KACE appliance to manage the systems.
