RESguru on Citrix TV

From the Bollywood dept. During Citrix Synergy 2011 in San Fransisco, I was interviewed by the nice folks from Citrix, who wanted to learn a bit more about the whole concept of Desktop Tranformation. Since RES Software coined the phrase back in 2009 we’ve been actively developing solutions for transforming an existing [RES]unmanaged desktop environment into a fully managed, predictable, consistent and documented workspace. We started all this with the built-in Desktop Sampler and the Workspace Designer back in the 2010 release. Since then the Desktop Sampler has been vastly improved, but as something new. July 1st 2011 RES Software is launching the Baseline Desktop Analyzer as a FREE reporting service,  I have already written a detailed article about it here. In the meantime have a look at the Citrix TV interview below:

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.
