Mourant Selects Marimba's Desktop/Mobile Management Solution

7/22/2003 - Marimba, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRBA), the Software Change Management Company, announced that Mourant, a leading provider of specialist professional services, has selected Marimba's Desktop/Mobile Management products to help reduce the cost of managing software and to enable greater control of its inventory assets and licensing. Mourant will use Marimba® products to manage all software applications for its desktop and laptop users in the United Kingdom.

Having recently upgraded to Windows XP, Mourant was looking for a solution that would support the rollout and maintenance of any additional operating systems and associated applications. In particular, the company needed a solution that would significantly reduce administration costs and time to free IT resources for other projects.

Jonathan Atkinson, EUS team leader at Mourant commented, "We replaced our existing change management solution with Marimba as we felt that it was the best fit to support our growing IT requirements. Marimba automates our software distribution requirements with minimal end user disruption and enables detailed software inventory and reporting. Its scalable open architecture also means that any additional requirements, such as security patch distribution, can be easily added."

Atkinson continued, "We recently rolled out a new application to our Human Resources department using Marimba. Previously, this would have meant visiting every machine to check that the integration was successful. We installed Marimba, and then deployed the subsequent application within minutes. We were able to instantly verify its successful delivery from viewing a central server."

"We have been impressed by the strength of support that we have received from Marimba throughout the entire implementation process," Atkinson added.

Adrian Rayner, Marimba's general manager of European sales and operations commented, "Marimba's software change management solutions are helping Mourant significantly reduce the administrative and support costs associated with application management, while providing better management of software and hardware assets. Mourant is committed to improving efficiencies throughout its enterprise and we are confident that the scalability of our solutions will support this goal."
