Learn about adaptive desktop strategies with Liquidware

This is a guest post by Jason E. Smith – VP Products, Liquidware

Windows desktops are rapidly evolving to take advantage of cloud and virtual strategies. These changes are also affecting the plans of any organization that delivers desktops for fast-moving and productive users.

At the Citrix User Group UK Meetings in 2019, you’ll find Liquidware discussing how we can help your organization adapt to Windows 10 and newly emerging cloud-desktop strategies, including Citrix on Azure and Microsoft WVD (Windows Virtual Desktop). Liquidware and Citrix are partners with Microsoft’s forthcoming WVD desktops, and we’d like to share with you how we can help your organization explore options.

Liquidware’s suite of Adaptive Workspace Management solutions complement Citrix’s vision for future of work and ensure that your users and organization can rapidly adopt new desktop strategies and be ready for the next big change in the industry.

  • Liquidware ProfileUnity enables ongoing user-environment management that supports a lift-and-shift methodology and is on-prem and multi-cloud compatible. The solution enables users to log off legacy desktops and log on to next generation OS, virtual, or cloud desktops at a moment’s notice and be immediately productive. Additional features often used in healthcare include follow-me printing, context-aware settings, and secure-application delivery.
  • Liquidware FlexApp application layering unchains Windows applications from the underlying Windows OS and is compatible with physical, virtual, and cloud-hosted desktops. Applications follow users without the need to install them in the OS itself or to modify base images. FlexApp is on-prem and multi-cloud compatible and also supports a lift and shift from one desktop platform to another (i.e. VMware to Citrix or Amazon Workspaces to Citrix or Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop to Citrix and so on). Even large applications such as Epic have been layered with FlexApp.
  • Liquidware Stratusphere ensures that organizations always have user-experience knowledge of their desktops and users to properly plan for a desktop transformation. The solution leverages machine learning to baseline user experience and automatically rate user experience, as well as in-depth diagnostics to provide organizations with a seamless adaptive workspace.

Liquidware has helped numerous organizations to manage their desktops and users with a proven adaptive-workspace strategy in mind. To get started today, visit www.Liquidware.com.
