Citrix Consulting Engagements
Even if you have already implemented a virtualization solution, our experts can assist you in optimizing or scaling your environment to meet your business needs. We can also provide guidance in migrating apps, tailoring desktops to different user groups or ensuring high-performance delivery to remote locations. Citrix Consulting can assist you where you need help.
Design engagements help gather and describe the business requirements for desktop virtualization, then define and document the design of a Citrix solution that meets the particular business and IT objectives. All design documentation is thoroughly reviewed during the Citrix Quality Assurance process, to ensure technical accuracy, risk mitigation, and alignment with Citrix Consulting’s leading practices and extensive field experience.
Assessment engagements evaluate technical infrastructure and business processes as they relate to successfully delivering applications and desktops using Citrix solutions. These consist of interactive sessions to discuss characteristics of the technical environment and related business processes while sharing proven best practices and field experiences. Assessments may complete a comprehensive analysis of the infrastructure areas that affect the performance, scalability and maintenance of the existing and/ or planned Citrix environment, and also the resolution of any issues identified.
Pilot deployment engagements rapidly deploy a standardized, production ready virtualization solution. This is a fast way to build a Citrix virtualization baseline deployment for future expansion and configuration.
Deployment engagements involve installing, and configuring a Citrix solution to meet the specifications from the Design phase of the Citrix Consulting methodology. This may include supporting the integration of applications required, and performing thorough testing of all infrastructure components. Citrix Consulting can guide you through a phased rollout, using our leading practices and extensive field experience to mitigate risk and help ensure a successful deployment.
