Centrix Software helps enterprises apply right flavor of virtualization with new analytics in WorkSpace iQ
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Software, a leading provider of workspace computing solutions, today
announced a new set of reports within WorkSpace iQ, its
award-winning end-user computing analytics solution, which will help
desktop and virtualization architects select the best types of
virtualization technology based on analytics focused on the user and
their technology consumption patterns.
WorkSpace iQ IT decision-makers gain fast access to
unparalleled intelligence on users, applications, devices and IT
consumption patterns to ensure technology investments are fully
optimized to user environments. The latest version of WorkSpace iQ
WorkSpace Designer for Citrix- project teams can quickly and
easily analyze the existing end-user computing infrastructure in
preparation for employing the right combination of Citrix desktop
virtualization technologies. The WorkSpace Designer covers initial
analysis through detailed capacity planning for Citrix XenDesktop and
XenApp infrastructure deployments, including:
Initial analysis of users to determine the best virtualization
choices for desktop delivery based on their work-style.
In depth analysis of application usage, including the ability to
sort applications by total use and filter by business groups,
locations and sessions.
Analysis of which applications need to be deployed on both Citrix
XenDesktop and XenApp platforms and the associated compatibility
status, including integration with Citrix AppDNA Apptitude.
Capacity planning for the final deployment based on application
allocation by platform, user requirements and core infrastructure
components such as SAN capacity.
User Virtualization Overview Report - provides unique insight
into user workstyles, enabling project teams to design and deploy user
virtualization in the most effective method. Capabilities include:
User consumption patterns of both applications and data, incuding
total data storage by user and data transfer metrics.
Unparalleled login statistics.
Easy identification of top application usage, enabled by WorkSpace iQ's
patent-pending application matching technology.
Identification of where applications require administrative rights
enabling the most efficient user-policy design.
A 'One Click' Data Summary Report that makes it easy for
customers and partners to integrate the application and asset usage
intelligence captured by WorkSpace iQ with other desktop and IT
management systems in use, such as software licensing tools, to
support wider user-centric technology decision-making.
"User environments are highly dynamic. In large organizations, the scale
of the user base and the diversity of technology use can make it
difficult for IT teams to plan architecture or application change
without impacting on productivity or the user experience," said Paul
Burke, director of products, Centrix Software. "WorkSpace iQ
addresses this challenge, making it easy for IT decision-makers to
understand the user environments and which application delivery options
best suit their needs. The latest updates provide new capabilities for
IT teams designing Citrix environments and virtualization projects that
drives dramatic cost reductions and performance improvements."
"Customers are increasingly looking to separate their users from
applications and devices in order to deliver the flexibility and
mobility demanded by today's workforce" said Neil O'Donoghue, Director
of Professional Services at AppSense. "Understanding the current
consumer-centric work environment is a critical starting point for
making the right transformation decisions and Centrix Software is
providing the richest, deepest understanding of users, their work
patterns and how data and applications are accessed. This provides
unique invaluable insight for any customer looking to transform and
virtualize their users."
"When you deploy desktop and application virtualization, you need
continuous insight and visibility across the user environment and
infrastructure, or your deployment is going to fail," said
Rachel Chalmers, Research director, Infrastructure Computing for the
Enterprise at The 451 Group (News - Alert). "Analytics plays a key role here. It helps
organizations map the most appropriate virtualization technologies to
each user based on how they work. This user-centric approach encourages
users to adopt new technologies - and by the way, it saves money and
gives central IT better controls."
