Windows Profiles / User Management Podcast – RES Software at GeekDay!
Rick Eilenberger, RES Sales Engineer-Western United States, discusses the concepts of User Workspace for Microsoft Windows. User Workspace is the environment users enter into to consume services within the network, Outlook as an example. For users, the User Workspace is the only environment they will ever see from IT. For the IT professional the User Workspace represents the last mile of administration within the network, the Exchange Server is built first as a resource which is in turn consumed by the Outlook service offered to end users.
The value proposition of RES Powerfuse is the ability to unify the User Workspace both for the network user, as well as the IT professional. Unifying the User Workspace for the end user has the effect of offering a consistent service delivery platform for the end user, the look and feel of the desktop remains consistent W2K – Vista, W2K – W2K8. Unifying the User Workspace for the IT professional is the work of delivering a single management console from which all configurations required for user and services (application) configuration within the network takes place from a SINGLE MANGEMENT CONSOLE!
Unifying the User Workspace for the IT professional has the impact of removing complexities associated with underlying platform instances within the network. The ability to deliver all configurations required within the User Workspace for all service application delivery, across all platform and device instances within the network from a single management console offers real value to businesses reliant on IT services to innovate and drive profitability. This single management console approach sets RES Powerfuse apart from other organizations attempting a foot hold in this market space. Important to note that RES Powerfuse was first delivered to market to support Winframe 3.51 with the intent of delivering a Windows 95 look and feel! We have come a long way.
