Army Medical Command buys software licenses

The Army Medical Command has purchased over 65,000 licenses of software from Quest Software Inc. of Irvine, Calif.

The command's U.S. Army Medical Information Technology Center will use products to migrate and manage the command's Microsoft infrastructure.

The center will run Quest Reporter, Quest ActiveRoles, Quest MessagesStats, and Quest Spotlight on Microsoft Exchange.

The center is using the software products as it migrates to Active Directory. Quest Reporter will assess the current Microsoft Windows NT domains prior to migration and for ongoing operations management reporting on Active Directory domains. Quest ActiveRoles is being used for operations management of the Army's Active Directory forests, according to a company release.

'We've been using Quest Software's products for a number of months now and have migrated close to 40,000 users. These user accounts are also managed by the Quest products for Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange," says Barzie Drewry, functional CIO for the Army Medical Command. 'We are pleased with the products and even more so with Quest's responsiveness to our unique needs and their subject matter expertise in the areas of migration and operations management."

Earlier this year, several other Army divisions purchased software licenses from Quest as well, including the Army's European Command, Network Enterprise Technology Command and the Army's CIO office.

Officials have not responded to requests for information on the cost of the licenses.
