Well, what’s going to be the big news for End User Computing in 2016. In 2015, I spoke to many customers about the exciting developments in the industry. These were largely focused on persona management and application packaging. 2016 will surely build on these technologies and see them more tightly integrated with both on premises and off premises deployments.View Full Post

As I plow through my current design, I took some time to review the evolution of the scope and key principles then decided to take a fresh look through the pages and ponder “what are the keys to a good VDI design?”

My last post discussed the collaborative opportunity we had to help lead, design, and build the overall sketch for a large Midwestern University’s use of vCloud Air and Horizon Air desktops for new online offerings. GANTECH provides services as well as solutions; to create that solution, we listen and ask questions. In essence, we go to school with each customer.

We recently had an opportunity to partner with a large Midwestern University to collaboratively design and implement a “digital lab” solution for two new online courses the University was delivering. The University chose to use VMware’s Horizon Air Desktops and vCloud Air for infrastructure for rapid deployment, scalability, and a premium experience. One particular challenge was that the solution had to be online within six weeks. If the solution were successful, Horizon Air Desktops and vCloud Air could become a larger part of the University offering to all students, not only for these two online courses. VMware brought GANTECH to the University as the EUC Elite Partner of choice.

Recently, a client wanted to implement Horizon View for their workforce and use their existing Cisco ASA Web SSL VPN to provide access to the desktops. That’s not an unreasonable constraint; they have an existing investment and a system that works, and they don’t want to throw that away. The end users like the capability to connect using a web browser and set up a secure connection to internal resources and use of the AnyConnect client was a non-starter, politically.

There is a revolution underway that has the potential to be staggeringly transformational and, at the same time, highly disruptive; it is currently called the Internet of Things (IoT) trend. IoT (also referred to as “Internet of Everything”) devices have embedded network, computing and other information processing capabilities, which allow these devices to be interconnected. The number and types of devices that are being manufactured with these built-in IoT features are increasing rapidly. It is imperative to take notice of the IoT trend because it has a strong potential to redefine the Security risk equation within many enterprises.View Full Post

If you’re a CIO or CTO working in healthcare you may be managing a traditional desktop environment. I’m sure you’re quickly realizing you need a simplified desktop management strategy with increased control of your corporate assets and improved security of end-user data. A centralized desktop environment for local and remote users gives your end users the ability to stay connected with patients and colleagues from any device, at any time and from any place. View Full Post

This year, GANTECH has been involved with VMware in a number of Horizon Air deployments. It is a very exciting opportunity to help drive adoption and make our customers successful in their EUC roadmaps. The Horizon Air platform is continuously maturing, providing new features to simplify the delivery of desktops and applications. As more and more VMware customers are evaluating Desktop as a Service (DaaS), my recommendation is to start at the beginning. Sometimes, you just need to go back to the basics. All virtual desktop projects should begin with an assessment of the existing environment to provide you the information needed to plan the right solution.View Full Post

I was shocked to see a recent study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies that stated damages due to hacking are greater than $300 billion each year. Threats to enterprise information security have escalated to entirely new levels, and those responsible for IT security need to elevate their game to avoid becoming the next headline story. The good news is that there are revolutionary technologies available to protect your organization and mitigate potential damage.  View Full Post
