The one-size-does-not-fit-all-story for VDI and the cloud seems to be echoing across the industry. Desktop administrators are the first to tell you that in most cases, a wholesale move to these technologies will leave many of their users without the kind of desktop experience needed to successfully perform their jobs. Sure, VDI and cloud-hosted desktops can give users access to basic applications and data … but increasingly that’s not enough. A rich user experience is more important than ever, and users expect to access their IT services through multiple devices from multiple locations without compromising that experience. Part of ...

Grant Tiller, Senior Product Manager From time to time, the support team here at RES Software may ask you for a trace file or a detailed log. This helps us to better understand what is happening on a machine, and is often an essential part of pinpointing the cause of an unexpected behavior. There are a couple of ways you can enable the detailed trace, but to keep it easy I always tend to enable tracing from an Admin PC (that way you don’t need to log on as admin, enable tracing, then log on as your test user. This produces a much cleaner log file) Preparing to Create a Trace File If you are using the Read-Only Blanketing functionality ... READ MORE>>

I recently came across a conversation on LinkedIn surrounding tips and experience with Windows 7 migration. With so many organizations in the process of making this move, or planning to do so in 2011, it’s a very relevant and important discussion that I’d like to share my thoughts on. The challenge with user migration for a lot of my customers has been how much energy and effort they want to put into migrating data vs. personality. Data is a no-brainer.

In our second IT Insight of the year, we focus on how to introduce context-aware computing into your IT environment. Today, it’s fairly common for people to work from different locations, as well as multiple platforms, all in the same work day. This is why context-aware computing is increasingly important. Wherever they are, users need access to their settings, applications and data, but IT still needs to control how and in what situations they should be able to access it. Creating a context-aware environment allows IT to control what content their users have access to, and when and where they have access to it. Essentially, it allows IT to set the parameters that dynamically create a workspace that is unique ... READ MORE>>

The constant struggle between IT departments and users is reaching new heights. Well-managed desktops through lock-down and standardization are mantras for most IT administrators. On the opposite side of the scale is the personalized desktop, where users have the freedom to adapt their workspace according to personal needs and preferences. With the never-ending wave of change, new client devices are turning up faster and faster. Users are at the same time getting more and more demanding. As a result, the cost effective, secure and standardized desktop is under tremendous pressure. The question today is how to achieve both standardization and personalization. So, what exactly ...
