When browsing well known community sites (such as brianmadden.com or dabcc.com), the Citrix Knowledge Base, the Forum or our blogosphere it easy to get the impression that the success of a XenDesktop project is just a matter of GPOs, registry tweaks or application / user profile / OS – Layering.
But actually it is not!
Although the technology has very powerful capabilities that allow organizations to work around issues that may arise during a project, there are situations where the limits of the technological flexibilities are reached and your project is at risk to fail. A typical reaction in such situations is to escalate, allocate new budget and bring in new consultants, new vendors or the community “big guns”. If they can’t solve it or there is no more budget the project will either be dropped or “released” as 0.x version with the promise to fix the issues “asap” (whatever that means).
When looking at this from a holistic perspective it is obvious that in most cases these kind of issues are caused by an “imperfect” project management, missing project phases or exaggerated management pressure.
While we can’t do anything about the management pressure, we can help you with the organizational side of a XenDesktop project and we will do so within our Synergy Session “SYN349 – Getting from “Wow to How”, Part 5: Lessons learned from the desktop transformation frontier – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, which is part of the Desktop Transformation Session Series.
During that session we will discuss the most important things you should do to make your project successful and we will also focus on the things you should avoid at all cost.
This session is held at:
- Thursday, May 26 3:00 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
- Friday, May 27 2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
See you at Summit/Synergy in SFO.
