Posted by Meghan Simmons on Jul 22, 2016

As a Citrix Ready certified solution for both Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, Unidesk was given the opportunity to participate in a video shoot at Citrix Synergy 2016 in Las Vegas. We could have just talked about the new innovations in Unidesk 4 that led to us winning Best of Synergy for New Technology, but we thought it would be more powerful to have some of our customers share their perspectives.

How USF Health Scaled VDI & Epic to 3,000 Users

Posted by TJ Racherla on Mar 23, 2016

This is part 1 of a 2-part blog series. The first gives an overview of USF Health’s 3,000 user Epic and VDI rollout. The second summarizes the business benefits that USF Health is now realizing.

Giving care providers mobile access to Epic EMR and hundreds of other key apps can be a real IT challenge when every group has unique requirements. This is why many healthcare organizations are using VDI with Unidesk application management to enhance provider access to clinical apps, comply with HIPAA and meaningful use mandates, and enable clinicians to spend more time on patient care and less time on logins.

USF Health is one such organization. We featured them in our Customer Success webinar series to find out the technologies and strategies their two-person end user computing team is using to efficiently scale VDI and Epic, and keep 3,000 users happy. This blog summarizes what they told the audience.

What’s the common thread between these two 3,000 user Epic EMR and VDI deployments?

Posted by TJ Racherla on Mar 11, 2016

USF Health in Florida and Lakeland Health in Michigan are both using virtual desktops as the delivery vehicle for Epic EMR and other clinical applications to their 3,000 physicians, nurses, and staff.

While one uses VMware Horizon and vSphere and the other Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft Hyper-V for desktop virtualization, both have standardized on the same solution for application management: Unidesk.

The end user computing architects at both institutions recently shared their project goals, designs, and implementation strategies in separate webinars attended by nearly 1,000 healthcare IT professionals. In case you missed it, here are the links to the webinar recordings.

With Unidesk and VDI, Snow Day Means Business As Usual for Leading Law Firm

Posted by TJ Racherla on Mar 10, 2016

Unidesk law firm customer Ober Kaler was recently featured in the Maryland Daily Record for the advanced mobile access they’re granting their employees with virtual desktops and Unidesk application management software.

The article, Because of technology, snow day means business as usual explains how the recent “snowmageddon” in Baltimore had no effect on Ober Kaler’s business operations and client service. Attorneys and staff worked from home with access to all applications, even though the firm's office was officially closed on the day of the storm.

Posted by Andrew Nadeau on Mar 8, 2016

Last year around this time, VMware launched its End User Computing (EUC) YouTube channel with a number of customer testimonials. Almost all of them use Unidesk for Windows application management, so we blogged that VMware’s most successful customers use Unidesk.

VMware is now sponsoring a series of VDI success stories in Windows IT Pro magazine. Every story so far features Unidesk customers. Why are more of VMware's most successful customers using Unidesk, when VMware now offers 3 different application management solutions in App Volumes, Mirage, and ThinApp?

What Do These 3 Successful VDI Deployments Have in Common?

Posted by TJ Racherla on Mar 4, 2016

We kicked off the New Year with three awesome customer webinars in our End User Computing Customer Webinar Series, which spotlights IT professionals who are modernizing their Windows workspaces with the help of Unidesk application lifecycle management technology.

Even though all three customers are using three different connectivity solutions (Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, Citrix XenDesktop, and VMware Horizon), and two different virtualization platforms (Hyper-V and vSphere), their VDI deployments have one technology in common: Unidesk.

Unidesk's openness should not come as a surprise. We're known for our numerous customer successes with VMware Horizon. We're also known for being Microsoft's image management partner for scaling Microsoft VDI on Hyper-V and making it easy to move Windows apps to the cloud with Azure RemoteApp. Our innovations for Citrix have also been in the news lately, and many Citrix customers with large XenApp farms are already making enterprise commitments to Unidesk.

In case you missed it, here's how the 3 customers are using Unidesk with their chosen infrastructure and end user computing platforms. The full webinar recordings let you listen to your peers explain how they are making application and desktop management easier for their IT organizations, while delivering fast, secure 24x7 access to Windows apps for their end users.

Another Unidesk Customer Featured in Windows IT Pro

Posted by TJ Racherla on Feb 22, 2016

Last month, two Unidesk manufacturing customers - Dayton Superior and Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing USA - made headlines as the subject of Windows IT Pro magazine’s hit story, "From Water Pumps to Sports Bikes, Manufacturers like Their VDI".

This month, another Unidesk customer - Montgomery County, PA - was featured in the magazine’s new story, "Law enforcement ups its VDI game." The article explains how local, state, and federal agencies are enhancing mobility and streamlining application management for their workforces, while realizing additional benefits such as better security and lower costs.

For those who think virtualizing desktops and apps is more expensive than doing things the same old way with PCs, the facts shared in this story prove otherwise.
