As the world continues to move to a user-centric computing model, provisioning configured and personalized IT Services to users across a wide-range of accessing devices, locations and across multiple delivery mechanisms, User Virtualization technology is continuing to gain momentum in many reference architects and standard offerings from Managed Desktop providers.  As the world leading User Virtualization solution provider, AppSense are proud to be part of yet another standard offering from one of the world leading managed desktop providers – in this case, Fujitsu Virtual Client Services.

Fujitsu Virtual Client Services (VCS) is “Fujitsu’s Managed Services approach to delivering hosted virtual desktops”, it is a hosted environment that delivers centrally managed desktops and application to users in any location from any device.  To create a “tried and tested, repeatable standard approach that can be re-used in implementations around the world”, Fujitsu has partnered with world leading vendors at each level of the desktop and across the backend infrastructure to provide a complete Citrix Ready solution.

At Citrix Synergy, CitrixTV recorded a number of video interviews where Fujitsu were ‘extremely proud’ to announce a complete end-to-end solution, utilizing Fujitsu technologies along with Citrix, Microsoft, AppSense, ThinPrint, ChangeBASE to put together a ‘best in class offering’.

Get on the Road to Desktop Transformation at Citrix Synergy 2011

May 23, 2011

The month of May has been a busy time at AppSense, as our ever-accelerating corporate momentum has translated into a much higher profile at key industry events in 2011. Over the last several weeks alone, we have played major roles at BriForum Europe, Interop, and Microsoft Tech-Ed North America, not to mention the various smaller community events that we take part in on an ongoing basis. The response has been tremendous, and this week brings the grand finale of our May events marathon, Citrix Synergy 2011.

Our recognition last year as the Citrix Ready Solution Provider of the Year is reflective of the strategic relationship that AppSense and Citrix have been building for over a decade. The AppSense and Citrix solutions are highly complementary, and as a result we have many customers and partners in common. So naturally, Citrix Synergy is an amazing opportunity for AppSense to showcase our ongoing collaboration with Citrix, connect with a large concentration of key customers and partners, and educate the desktop virtualization community at large about the strategic value of user virtualization.

Visit AppSense at Booth #302

As a Platinum sponsor of Citrix Synergy, AppSense will have a significant presence in the Citrix Synergy Solutions Expo. We have a great set of activities planned in the booth throughout the week. Whether you are still in the investigative stages or are ready for a “deep dive” product demo, you’ll find what you need at Booth 302 and also have a chance to meet some of AppSense’s best and brightest.

Start Your Desktop Transformation Journey

Expect to see the Citrix Desktop Transformation Model take center stage at Citrix Synergy, and for AppSense to be right at the center of it. Citrix will have an extensive set of programs and resources available at Synergy to help you simplify and accelerate your efforts to transform desktop computing in your organization. As a key enabler of the Citrix approach, AppSense will be on hand at the Citrix Simplify Desktop Transformation Pavilion. The Citrix Desktop Transformation Model is a great framework to optimize and accelerate your desktop virtualization efforts, and we are pleased to be a part of it.

In addition to checking out the sessions and exhibits at the show, be sure to download our brand new white paper, “AppSense and Citrix: Accelerating the Desktop Transformation Model.”
