Lakeside Software: Three Strategies for Stellar Root Cause Analysis

Lakeside Software
Technological difficulties are an inescapable part of everyday life and they can be massively inconvenient.

Lakeside Software: Explaining and Expanding the SLA Conversation

Lakeside Software
Service Level Agreements (SLAs) come in many forms and descriptions in life, promising a basic level of acceptable experience. Typically, SLAs have some measurable component, i.e. a metric or performance indicator. Take, for example, the minimum speed limit for interstates.

Millions of PCs currently running Windows 10 will lose support in 2018 due to incompatible drivers according to ZDNet.

End Users Are People Too says Lakeside Software

Lakeside Software
Companies are finding that the traditional approach of a four-year, one-size-fits-all technology refresh cycle no longer works for today’s tech-charged workforce. For some employees, that cycle is too long and limits their ability to be productive by keeping them from the latest hardware and applications that they’re accustomed to in their personal lives. Other workers are less demanding, and […]

Lakeside Software Introduces the SQL Server Administration Kit

Lakeside Software
Database administration is an important role within IT. Ensuring the backend infrastructure is available and functioning well is critical to the end users. If a SQL Server that’s hosting the backend of a Citrix XenApp farm has no available disk space then users won’t be able to launch any new sessions, which would cause massive […]

Foundations of Success: Digital Experience Monitoring

Lakeside Software
We’ve all seen the rapid evolution of the workplace; the introduction of personal consumer devices, the massive explosion of SaaS providers, and the gradual blurring of the lines of responsibility for IT have introduced new complications to a role that once had very clearly defined purview. In a previous post, we discussed quantification of user experience as a […]

Liquidware
For over 25 years we’ve seen innovation and change in many areas of information technologies. For example, the shift from monolithic mainframe to distributed microcomputer-based computing. Networking has been completely reborn and wireless technologies have enabled pervasive access for all. Telephony is no longer a dedicated infrastructure and voice is simply another data type. All of […]

The Quantified User: Redefining How to Measure IT Success

Lakeside Software
In 1989, the blockbuster hit Back to the Future took the world by a storm with wild technology predictions. Now, we know the film might have missed the mark on flying cars and power clothes, but many of its predictions were more accurate than expected. Case in point: wearables. From virtual reality headsets to fitness […]

How Can I Use Microsoft Data to Optimize My Office 365 Environment?

Lakeside Software
For IT administrators, gathering data about user experience and application utilization can be a daunting task. There are many sources of user related data available; however, I will focus down on the data concerning a hypothetical organization’s Office 365 subscription and how SysTrack can help both show and give context to this data. The IT […]

Using SysTrack to Resolve User Issues with SaaS

Lakeside Software
Cloud services have fundamentally shifted the landscape for the average consumer of IT resources, and too often this leaves the support organization stuck as the discoverer of the root cause of issues that span the endpoint, the network, and the supporting service providers. Our own organization is in a similar situation, having adopted Office 365 […]

Dedicated GPUs aren’t just for gamers and designers anymore. The modern workspace is experiencing increasingly vivid and interactive software that is challenging entrenched beliefs about the nature of corporate work.

How does Office 365 perform across Windows operating systems?

Lakeside Software
Modern users have the choice between a variety of Windows OS and Office versions. In relation to this mix, a common question we have come across in the past is “How does Windows 10 performance compare with Windows 7?” While we have addressed the situation in the past, it remains a popular question to this […]

To assess or not to assess, is that even a question?

Liquidware
I’m currently working on the first design project after becoming VCDX. And so it is a great opportunity to use my newly developed skills to design the world’s most awesome Digital Workspace.
