May 5, 2010

The ‘AppSense Webinar Series’ is in full flow, with webinar #2 taking place tomorrow.  Bas Bremmer, an AppSense Senior Pre-Sales Consultant from our Dutch office will be presenting his experiences on ‘Simplifying Windows 7 Migration’.

Migrating users to Windows 7 can be a risky and expensive proposition, especially if it affects the employee’s working environment.

  • Best practice for migrating to Windows 7
  • Replacement of legacy user profiles to reduce management and support costs
  • Options for moving to centrally managed desktops
  • Q&A

Date & Time:

AppSense part of the Microsoft SAM Partner Program

April 29, 2010

I previously blogged about Microsoft Application Device License Control in SBC, VDI and Streamed Environments, where I highlighted that Microsoft Applications are in fact licensed on a PER DEVICE basis, and not, a PER USER basis – which may cause issues for many organizations in terms of licensing where by only a certain number of USERS needs access (and therefore perceivable a small number of user licenses) but in order to comply with Microsoft Licensing you must still have a license for EVERY DEVICE in the organization, even if the users of those devices will never run the application in question.

Further to this AppSense are recognized by Microsoft as a valid means to control application access at a DEVICE level and are therefore able to reduce device based license requirements.

I am pleased to announce that AppSense, in addition to being a Microsoft Gold ISV Partner, the Microsoft System Center Alliance Program and member of the Microsoft High Potential Managed Partner Program, are now also listed as a Microsoft SAM (Software Asset Management) Partner and listed exclusively as a SAM related tool and service on the Microsoft SAM Partner web-page

Quoting the page:

“Today’s IT organizations are constantly striving to lower the total cost of ownership of their infrastructure while getting the maximum value from their IT investment. With the onset of multiple delivery technologies, efficient software license management is a key component of today’s IT strategy. Microsoft acknowledge AppSense Application Manager as a solution that enterprises could use as part of Software Asset Management to provide device-based license management in a Windows® Terminal Services, virtual desktop or virtualized streamed environment.”
