Exoprise Aims to Accelerate Enterprise Adoption of Google Chromebooks with CloudReady

Exoprise Systems today announced the availability of CloudReady Insight for Desktops, an automated assessment solution built specifically to identify which users, applications and machines in an organization can easily migrate to cloud-based alternatives including Google Chromebooks and Google Apps for Business. CloudReady’s next-generation approach requires no client-side agents, is deployable in minutes and delivers deep insights into key “Post-PC Era” decision factors such as total cost of ownership, actual application usage, productivity and performance.

Measuring the Fit and Benefits of Enterprise Chromebook Deployments with Data-Driven Insights

Recently made available to businesses, the Google Chromebook is a web-optimized, secure computer designed to help organizations seize the advantages of cloud-based alternatives to on-premises applications. Exoprise created CloudReady Insight for Desktops to help organizations determine the fit and benefits of Chromebooks through an automated, data-driven assessment of key environment, cost and application usage factors.

CloudReady Insight for Desktops helps organizations prioritize their IT investments and transform their application delivery strategy. Faced with an increasing number of alternatives to Windows PC-based environments including Virtual Desktop solutions like Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services and cloud-enabled solutions like Google Apps, IT leaders require new technologies that help determine which approach is most viable and cost effective for their enterprise.

“Having detailed knowledge of application usage and TCO across an environment is critical to making decisions about which alternative platforms are best for an organization,” said Jason Lieblich, Exoprise Founder and CEO. “As companies investigate more productive and cost-effective alternatives to the traditional Windows PC, IT leaders need the insights and tools to properly plan, deploy and manage these changes.”

Application Analytics without the Need for Heavy Agent Deployment

Unlike traditional systems management tools that require appliances and distribution of client-side agents to every desktop, CloudReady Insight for Desktops is deployable in minutes and delivers results previously unobtainable through agent-free technologies. Some of the analytics delivered include:

  • Application usage and distribution across every desktop and laptop
  • Data-driven cost analytics comparing PCs to Chromebook and Virtual Desktop alternatives
  • Automatic identification of web-based equivalent applications for pre-deployment planning
  • Segmentation of Web-workers vs. Office-workers

Google Partners Look to Satisfy Demand for Chromebooks in the Enterprise

Top-tier Google partners are enthusiastic about adding Chromebooks to their suite of offerings. With customers on the leading edge of cloud adoption, Google partners are ideally positioned to help enterprises determine how much of a traditional desktop environment can be replaced by Chromebooks. “Interest in Chromebooks is extremely high among our customers and prospects,” said Tony Safoian, CEO of SADA Systems, a premiere Google partner. “CloudReady will allow us to quickly meet this interest with assessment and planning tools to guide their deployments. The service offers value to any organization contemplating the impact of the cloud on their business.”
