Boldly going where no Parallels team has gone before!

We met with hundreds of Microsoft System Center users to find out how they are currently managing the Macs in their networks. Now safely back at home, we’re ready to help more companies support and manage their Mac desktop and laptops right alongside PCs. 

Same time, same place next year...and remember, live long and prosper!

Cool Cameras Headed Into Space + Your Chance to Win One

Here at Parallels, we get to support IT managers who work for amazing companies. IT managers who support the engineers, scientists and all around brainiacs doing really cool stuff in lots of different industries. Let’s face ita great IT team is the wind beneath the wings of the folks who can imagine great things but can’t tell a Firewire connector from Thunderbolt.

Two of our customers, Lytro and NASA, are teaming up to take some amazing photography technology and put it into space probes. Yes, really.

In 2012, Lytro released the first Light Field Camera. It’s super cool. You can take a picture AFTER it has been taken, change the perspective, and interactively refocus and change the image on line. The first time I played with their online demo, I was mesmerized for about 45 minutes. 

Behind the scenes, Adam Kostrzak is their stalwart IT Director, making sure that their team is functioning at peak performance. He recently talked to us about why he uses Parallels Desktop Enterprise Edition.

The same year, NASA was celebrating the fact that Curiosity had landed on Mars. And to many people’s surprise, they use a LOT of MacBook Pros. And they use Parallels Desktop on them. 

So here’s a big shout to the IT teams who make it possible to go where no man has gone before, in so many ways!

If you happen to be attending the Midwest Management Summit in Minneapolis this week, come by and see us! We’re proud to be a Gold Sponsor of the show, and we’re going to be giving away a Lytro camera! Come and brag to us about what you and your company are up to.
