New technote: Application Standardization with AM

From the technote dept. A new article RG03C has been added to the Tech Library by resident guru, Sascha Maier. In this article, Sascha takes on Gartner’s view on how to archive corporate bliss through the process of application standardization through out the enterprise. While this by no means is an task to trifle with, things do not actually have to be as hard as you might think. Using the RES Automation Manager, it is possible to not only gather a structured overview of what’s out there, but also deploy sets of applications to different groups of computers, also in a very structured manner.

While other deployment methods do exist, keep in mind that Automation Manager is designed to be domain independent, massively parallel in operation and offer a lean&mean way to get to where you need to be very quickly. In this article sascha illustrates how exactly to reach your standardization goals using RES Automation Manager.

Technote: All about the Baseline Desktop Analyzer

This article was written on Saturday last week after Citrix Synergy. Wow..! That’s simply the best I can currently can come up with, as I’m unwinding at the Gloria Ferrer vineyard with my better half in Sonoma, enjoying a bottle of ’99 Carneros Cuvée, after an intense week of Synergy 2011. If you follow my tweets, or have read Bill’s post-synergy article, you’ll know we had an overwhelming response to our booth demos and the brand spankin’ new Baseline Desktop Analyzer cloud-service, which will be available for FREE July 1st. During Citrix Synergy, my buddy Gabe Knuth from TechTarget tracked me down for an interview to get the scoop on this new offering. You can see the interview in details by clicking on the video above.

Parts of the video demo may be slightly hard to see, so let us dive a bit more into the Baseline Desktop Analyzer, or BDA as we refer to it shorthand. It’s essentially a free service to give customers and integrators the ultimate overview of the current state of affairs in their IT environments before embarking onto new projects. It doesn’t matter if it’s WinXP->Win7 migration, Physical to VDI, XenDesktop, XenApp, VMware View etc. The situation is a bit like navigation on the high seas: Where ever you are going, you need to get your bearings before you set sail in any direction.

To better prepare yourself for the journey and using DBA, you’ll do well by studying this article. Click here to read it.
