Centrix Software Demonstrates Unified End-User Computing Solutions at Citrix Synergy 2011
Centrix Software, a provider of unified end-user computing solutions that optimize the way IT infrastructures deliver applications, services and content, is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting at Citrix Synergy 2011, San Francisco (stand No. 721) on 25-27 May. At the show, Centrix Software will demo the latest version of Centrix WorkSpace, a suite of business technology solutions that enable organizations to analyze, plan, deliver and optimize end-user-computing environments more effectively and efficiently.

Centrix Software will show how organizations can unify desktop and application services provisioned from physical, virtualized, cloud, Windows and Web platforms for seamless service delivery. It will also showcase the latest end-user computing analytics solutions that enable desktop and application teams to get deeper insights across their end-user computing estates and tune new platforms, such as virtual desktops to exact user requirements. New features in Centrix WorkSpace include the ability to define and template the application needs of individual and groups of users and faster application analysis.

“Organizations want to minimize the risks associated with change during any desktop transformation. By providing deeper intelligence on the user environment based upon real-time resource and asset consumption, we enable IT teams to make more informed decisions about their desktop and client computing choices and ensure new services are inline with user needs,” said Lisa Hammond, CEO of Centrix Software. “In addition, as we adopt new service deployment platforms such as virtualization and cloud computing, organizations need to have the ability to control service delivery more effectively and unify their increasingly diverse application and desktop environments. Centrix Software enables organizations to address these challenges and in turn create more dynamic service environments.”

In recognition of the need for a more unified approach to end-user computing and deeper user insight, Centrix Software has also announced a partnership with US reseller Claros Systems, who will offer Centrix WorkSpace to organizations in the US.

Chuck Fritz, CEO of Claros Systems, commented: “At Claros Systems we design and architect IT infrastructures, building a ‘Delivery System’ which connects business users to the applications, information and services they need to do their jobs. Centrix Software solutions fit nicely into our overall solution by helping customers optimize the way infrastructures deliver applications, services and content. By providing an agile and modular approach organizations can get more from their heterogeneous environments, and be in a position to benefit from new technologies and computing models such as private and public cloud approaches.”

Centrix WorkSpace includes:

  • WorkSpace iQ™ – an end-user computing analytics solution that shows how IT services are really being used. Organizations using WorkSpace iQ can identify opportunities for rationalization and prepare more effectively for technology change. By identifying actual user requirements, and consumption trends, WorkSpace iQ shows where there are opportunities to reduce cost across software and hardware assets and improve IT efficiency. The intelligence it provides enables new client computing environments, such as desktop virtualization to be tailored to user and business requirements.
  • WorkSpace Universal™ - a unified end-user computing platform that allows organizations to unify all the applications and services that users require into one interface. Taking this approach means that companies can easily optimize IT resources to their users’ need and provide seamless access to corporate IT services from any device.
  • WorkSpace Discovery™ - a free endpoint analytics tool for companies that want to see what applications are installed on their PCs and laptops and what’s being used. WorkSpace Discovery provides IT managers with insight across desktop estates and is an effective first stage planning solution for desktop transformation projects.

Centrix Software will be at stand number 721 at Citrix Synergy 2011, taking place from 25-27 May at the Moscone West Convention Center, San Francisco.
