*** Earlier today, we had issues with the media player on AppSense.com – I have since uploaded to video to YouTube and can be viewed here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1BCnqwD15Y ***
Further to the library of PDF based customer case studies, I am pleased to announce our first video case study with joint Citrix and AppSense customer, The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB).
Hurricane Ike caused a major power outage at UTMB and left employees without access to their desktops, IT knew they needed a new method to remotely deliver desktops to any user, in any location – so, UTMB turned to Citrix XenDesktop. They were already familiar with Citrix technologies on account of their existing XenApp farm, and have been extremely happy with the results of XenDesktop, however, XenDesktop “simply lacked the level of personalization we were looking for” says Landon Winburn, Software Systems Specialist at UTMB.
UTMB ‘turned to AppSense to help solve their end-user personalization issues and to increase end-user satisfaction’ as part of their Citrix XenDesktop deployment. Landon goes on to explain that “after researching a number of user virtualization solutions, we chose AppSense because it worked in heterogeneous environments, provided effective management of multiple delivery mechanisms, and provided a consistent desktop to our employees which looked identical to their physical PC”.
I have uploaded the video to the AppSense YouTube Channel and can be found here or by clicking on the screenshot below

I believe Landon will be at this weeks Citrix Synergy event, so if you see him, feel free to say hi and ask about their joint Citrix XenDesktop and AppSense environment.
