From the REScue 911 Dept. Recently I was involved in a client project where they had a problem. And it was a big problem: Effectively they were using another profile management product which was malfunctioning. I’d prefer not to give the game away by naming the vendor. Not that I have any problem with verbally beating vendors over the head when they deserve it – this is out of courtesy to the client.
Suffice to say, the product in question employed by my client was practically holding the user’s profile settings hostage. Allow me to clarify: If your current UEM tool redirects a write to a proprietary format, you are putting all the user’s profile data into a basket you have no or little control over. Meaning: If you switch said UEM tool off, then all your user’s settings are stuck in said basket. The following article puts you on a path out of this situation.
