Notes from the Road 11 – Microsoft User Experience Virtualization

Park City; It’s not just for skiing anymore.

I think the best way to start this latest NFR blog is with a hearty congratulations to my old colleagues and friends at Microsoft. Earlier today they announced the much anticipated official Beta of a project code named “Park City”, or officially UE-V. User Experience Virtualization has been in the pipe for a long time now and with this announcement by Microsoft today it sends a clear message across the user state virtualization space. And that message must absolutely be taken seriously -or desktop modernization projects could be in jeopardy.

As you might guess, I’ll get much more verbose on this topic. But here’s the RES story in a nutshell: IT needs to become centered around the user. With hybrid infrastructures and IT consumerization all happening at once, it’s just getting too complicated to manage the user environment one device and one OS instance at a time. To make this happen, IT infrastructures have to crack the nut and get to context awareness. It’s not just what’s in a user’s profile – it’s where they’re accessing apps and data, what time of day their accessing them, and what device they’re using when they do it. Context awareness is vital because it allows security and compliance to become adaptive. If security isn’t context aware, you have to go with the lowest common denominator – either that, or lock down the device so tight the electrons can’t get out. Should every app be available from every location? Should I be able to store data on any device? Should the intranet be accessible when I am not in a trusted location? Or none of the above, ever? But let’s get back to my story.
