Benny Tritsch Professional Year 2016 in Review – Part 2
0

In part 1 of my 2016 review I put the emphasis on my engagement with Lakeside Software which consumed a substantial amount of my work time. This part 2 is about all my other activities, like short projects, workshops, presentations and community work. Let’s start with the short projects and the customer workshops. Primarily they were around pure Microsoft Remote Desktop Services infrastructures and end user experience benchmarking. It is interesting to note that there are only a few independent experts (including myself) that have some solid field experience with pure Microsoft RDS environments, both on premises and in the Azure cloud. Kristin Griffin from the US and Freek Berson are two of them, and in 2016 we joined forces. Together we deliver our consulting services under the label RDS Gurus. I think the name is self-explanatory. Over the last months we have learned that pure RDS – without add-on products from Citrix or VMware – is a growing market. This is particularly true for price-sensitive hosted environments supporting multiple internal or external tenants and with highly specialized system admins. The release of Windows Server 2016 gave this market segment an extra boost, due to its remote desktop user interface that is identical to Windows 10 and the improved remoting protocol capabilities. In 2017 I expect to see a lot more pure RDS environments including some third-party point solutions for system management and resource control.

Measuring end user experience in a variety of remoting scenarios is also one of my favorite topics. Customers and system integrators want to know what kind of end user experience they can expect before implementing or updating a remoting infrastructure. It’s all about expectation management with the goal to reduce business risk and user frustration. Unfortunately, there is a lack of tooling when it comes to remote end user experience (REX) benchmarking that goes beyond producing simple performance counter scores. With the vision to solve this tooling problem Kristin Griffin, Freek Berson and I started the software company REX Analytics, supported by an external team of developers in Germany and in Hungary. Our REX Framework is growing and we started using elements of it in our commercial RDS Gurus activities.
