Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Get Started?

Simply complete the form above and one of our consultants will be in touch to discuss the pre-requisites and objectives for the evaluation.

What's Included?

You’ll have access to a fully featured installation of ManagementStudio, complete with data connectors and automation engine.  In addition, your consultant will work alongside you to help you get the most out of the evaluation.  We even install the product and provide a familiarisation training for as many people as you need.

How long does it take to install?

Assuming all pre-requisites are in place, we typically have the base install of ManagementStudio up and running within a couple of hours. 

What pre-requisites do I need for the trial?

ManagementStudio requires an IIS webserver and SQL database.  Although the precise configuration varies depending on the scope of the project, the following hardware and software requirements are provided for illustrative purposes:

8,000 User Windows 11 Migration

IIS Server

  • OS: Windows Server 2012 onwards
  • CPU: 6-core
  • RAM: 6GB
  • App Storage: Min 80GB

SQL Server

  • OS: Windows Server 2012 onwards
  • CPU: 6GB
  • RAM: 12GB
  • DB Storage: Min 32GB

Misc

  • Access to Microsoft Active Directory
  • Access to an inventory system, such as Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM) or Lakeside Systrak
  • An email relay

People/Project Team

  • A ManagementStudio champion that will act as product lead and our primary point of contact
  • Application expert to make decisions about the application portfolio

Your consultant will provide more information during the POC initiation call.

 

What support do you provide during the trial?

In addition to the installation and the familiarisation training, we also host weekly progress meetings to discuss the next steps of your evaluation and to action any configuration changes that you might want.  Throughout the evaluation, you’ll have full access to our service desk and knowledge base, too.

Can I move the POC to Production?

Absolutely!  Many of our customers prefer to install the trial on hardware that’s representative of the final configuration, which simplifies the move to a production environment.  However, it’s relatively straight forward to take a single-server POC instance and scale it out to a production environment.  We’ll support you with the aspects specific to ManagementStudio, including the best way to move your database.

How is ManagementStudio licensed?

ManagementStudio is available on a subsciption model or perpetual license with support and maintenance.

Every item that will be tracked in ManagementStudio will require a license.

For example:

  • Users: 2,000
  • Devices: 3,000
  • Applications: 1,000
  • Mailboxes: 2,500

Licenses Required: 8,500

Do you offer professional services?

To help you get the most out of ManagementStudio, we focus on providing training and mentoring to all our customers through our enablement programme.  This is enough for most of our customers to become self-sufficient.

Anything in addition to this, for example, creating a custom report, is covered by our Professional Services team. For more information about the services that we offer, please get in touch.

What happens at the end of my trial?

If you decide to keep ManagementStudio, you simply need to purchase a production license for your install. The software will continue to run and you’ll retain access to all data collected during the evaluation. 

Your consultant will discuss options closer to the time.
