Castilla – La Mancha (Spain)
“Castilla-La Mancha is a large territory in the center of Spain with a population of 2 million inhabitants in an area of almost 80,000 square kilometers. Some of our citizens have to travel up to an hour to reach the region’s administrative centers.” Alipio García, Director General of the Directorate General of Telecommunications and Information Technologies of the Regional Government of Castilla-La Mancha.
The Government of Castilla – La Mancha was investing in digital infrastructure so that companies and citizens could have faster access to the Internet. This was coupled with the digital literacy needed to train the population in the use of digital tools.
In order to enable access to services, they created an online portal and also manage a network of 470 technology centers that provide 3,900 computer access points throughout the region. However, maintenance of the desktop network is slow and costly:
- They needed devices with which they could forget about software updates and arduous maintenance.
- Facilitate training for the technical team to disseminate knowledge to service users.
How do we help the Council make these devices fit?
We initially installed 400 Chromebooks across its network of technology centers, leveraging the use of the Chrome Enterprise centralized management console to manage them.
We supported the technical team and the staff of the administrative centers so that they could disseminate the knowledge and transfer it to all users.
At Nubalia we are committed to Chrome OS as a safe, comfortable and easy to maintain operating system
What has the Government of Castilla-La Mancha achieved with Chrome OS?
- Real-time network management with the Chrome Enterprise Admin console, increasing uptime and facilitating maintenance.
- Improve user experience with faster navigation and easier login, reducing the number of reported user incidents.
- Eliminates the need for annual software upgrades, saving €70,000 per year.
“In addition to the financial and administrative benefits, because we are a municipal entity providing an inclusive service, building trust and support is very important to us. The response has been incredibly positive, which is why we’ve made the decision to expand access.”
