Introduction to Citrix Workspace Environment Manager – Part 1

So with the purchase of NorScale, Citrix again has enterede the UEM market. Now instead of going with RES or AppSense (Which is now at Landesk) they aimed for a product which is pretty small in comparison but I believe that this will makes it easier for Citrix to mold it into a product of their own. Now I’ve been eager to try it out for a while, but time has been quite limited over the last couple of months.

Now the product became available for download a couple of weeks back, still lacking quite a lot on the documentation and information available but it has now been rebranded of their own. So what about the product, what does it do? It can alter the user environment, mapping drives, resources, printers, hide and lockdown the desktop, we can do this based upon different filters for instance LDAP OU, Groups and so on (ill come back to this part a bit later) so think of it as a more powerful way to do Group Policy Preferences but without the limitations.
Another cool feature is the resource optimization part which allows us to save CPU / Memory.

The infrastructure components as of now are pretty simple deployment, we need to setup the solution to a license server or else you will get an error message(Like the one below)
