  • Although more and more businesses are moving to public clouds for increased flexibility and lower costs, enterprise applications in private clouds will continue to exist and play a vital role for the foreseeable future. Forces such as security and regulation, control and performance, and specific requirements drive businesses to build and sustain their own private cloud.

  • Survey Article - http://www.itbusinessedge.com/cm/blogs/lawson/the-high-costs-of-unused-apps-lack-of-data-governance/?cs=43655 We start to help customers by providing the greatest depth of data analytics on their IT environment available today.This is a report available in WorkSpaceiQ that we call the Application Tail. While the gradient of this curve differs slightly from customer to customer this is a curve we see regularly with every customer we work with.It tells us a number of important metrics. Firstly, the vast majority of application usage comes from a very small number of applications. This helps customers identify the ideal candidates for the ‘base build’, regardless of whether physical or virtual desktops are implemented. Customers use this to set their cut-off point for how that based build needs to be configured.What is more important though is the rest of the application tail. Here we see often hundreds of applications that are used far less frequently. However, they are often critical business applications such as financial systems, HR systems, logistics, supply chain etc. Including these as physical applications in the desktop environment may not be the most efficient and cost-effective way to deliver these applications.With the right level of data analytics, we’re able to provide the right recommendations for customers, based on application usage.The other key metric that comes from the application tail is that 50% of installed applications are never used. This identifies rationalization opportunities and helps companies reduce the on-going desktop TCO and desktop transformation costs.
  • Although more and more businesses are moving to public clouds for increased flexibility and lower costs, enterprise applications in private clouds will continue to exist and play a vital role for the foreseeable future. Forces such as security and regulation, control and performance, and specific requirements drive businesses to build and sustain their own private cloud.
  • As we touched upon earlier, organisations have more options in how they deliver end user workspace environments, do they use fat clients, thin, virtualisation, VDI etc etc. But most are confused by the array of choices. With that in mind Microsoft have defined workstyles that can be used to segment user types based on their requirements and then these requirements can be mapped to the capabilities of the devices and architectural approaches.Typically understanding these workstyles has been based on Inventory, Manual Usage studies and Business Data to segment accordingly.Centrix iQ again automates what is a cumbersome and slow manual process and via our reporting engine you can gain very quick insight into your specific Workstyles as they align to Microsoft or even customise based on your needs.Easily identify users and apps in each workstyleOrganizations now have more options in how they deliver client-computing capabilities to their users than ever before, but most are bewildered by the range of choices. We describe a new model that can be used to segment user types by identifying their requirements and then mapping these to the capabilities of devices and architectural approaches.• The main drivers for segmenting users are: ensuring each user gets the capabilities he or she needs to the job; ensuring the capabilities fit adequately with user preferences and expectations; optimizing capital and operational costs; and ensuring technologyindependence.• The primary parameters to consider for user segmentation are mobility, autonomy,business processes and collaboration.• The segmentation model can create "profiles" of specific user requirements. Each user profile can be mapped against the capabilities of computing architectures and devices.• Having too few user profiles can lead to underprovisioning some users, thus restricting their productivity and/or overprovisioning other users, leading to overspending. Too many profiles can drive complexity and significant increases in operational costs.Gartner User CategoriesProductivity Task BasedComms Task WorkersOffice-based Information WorkersCampus-based Information WorkersContent/Media WorkersTravelling WorkersVIPs

  • User Behavior Analytics > About workspace computing About Centrix Software “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” - Peter Drucker Desktop dilemma New workspace
  • How Many Apps are Supported? > About workspace computing 3,367 apps/user 981 About Centrix Software apps/user 231 apps/user Desktop dilemma 1370 apps/user New workspaceForrester & Dell Survey of 200 IT Decision Makers : https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/Win7/win-7-migration.pdf
  • Cost Savings > About workspace computing About Centrix Software 44% estimate to Desktop dilemma save $1 million or more New workspaceForrester & Dell Survey of 200 IT Decision Makers : https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/Win7/win-7-migration.pdf
  • Understanding Usage One Survey showed% of application usage • annual expenses for unused apps as high as $2.8M • 81% respondents said their networks 90% of application usage from the top 10 apps had unused apps • 67% of enterprise admins very concerns about untracked apps 90% of apps are used less than 10% of the time • 30% of apps each year are updated, replaced or patched • Many enterprises add up to 300 new apps per year 50% of apps are never used Unique applications

  • Identify Users & Apps by Workstyle Productivity Task Workers In technology terms They are unlikely to work on the move, but might work from more than one fixed location. Office Based Info Workers In technology terms require a relatively broad application set. Need level of control over access but not full administrative control. Unlikely to work on the move, might work from more than one fixed location. Will require multi-channel communication and collaboration capabilities for working with peers. Travelling Workers In technology terms Require access to only a narrow portfolio of apps and only create content in a highly structured manner. They will not require control over how they access applications or data, but will need access from almost any location within geographic boundaries.
