IGEL Teams with Lakeside Software to Drive Success of Citrix VDI Deployments

New assessment tool driven by Lakeside SysTrack enables IT organizations to capture data and business intelligence to use in selecting the right IGEL endpoint solution for their environment.

Endpoint management software vendor IGEL has teamed up with Lakeside Software in the development of an IGEL Thin Client assessment tool, powered by Lakeside SysTrack Workspace Analytics. Designed to help IT organizations drive the success of their Citrix VDI deployments when they select the right combination of IGEL endpoint solutions for their environments, the new assessment tool is being featured at Citrix Synergy 2017, taking place this week in Orlando, Fla.

“Modern enterprises are increasingly migrating toward virtualization in order to better meet the needs of their remote and mobile workforces, shore up the security of their data, applications and infrastructure, and reduce the cost of their desktop deployments” says Dan Salinas, vice president of Sales and Business Development, Lakeside Software. “This growing adoption of application and desktop virtualization, as well as VDI, has also led to greater demand for thin client solutions, yet many IT organizations still struggle to determine the extent to which they must replace or convert their existing desktop infrastructure. The new IGEL Thin Client assessment tool powered by Lakeside SysTrack takes the guesswork out this process by collecting data from the target IT environment that can then be used by the IT organization to select the right IGEL endpoint hardware and/or software for their Citrix virtualization deployments.”

IGEL’s family of Citrix Ready endpoint solutions include the IGEL OS-powered Universal Desktop (UD) series multi-protocol thin clients, the IZ Series zero clients optimized for VDI environments, and the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC) which converts any x86-based endpoint, regardless of manufacturer or form factor, into an IGEL OS-powered desktop, all of which are managed through the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) software.

Key data collected by the IGEL Thin Client assessment tool includes usage data, the number and type of systems currently in place within the target IT environment, and the health and age of those systems. The assessment tool can also help IT organizations determine whether it is a good time for them to migrate from Window 7 to Windows 10 through readiness statistics.

“This new assessment tool is the first of several joint efforts between IGEL and Lakeside to address an unmet need in the marketplace for data and analytics that will speed the evaluation process that enterprises must go through when deciding how to configure their endpoints to support their Citrix-based virtualized infrastructure environments,” says Simon Clephan, vice president of Business Development and Strategic Alliances, IGEL.
