Stop! Look! Listen! - The Green Cross Code for Successful Desktop Virtualisation

  1. 1. Stop, Look, Listen!The Green Cross Code for successful desktopvirtualisationLewis Gee
  2. 2. Desktop Transformation Projects? Running some / all of these projects? Desktop virtualization Windows 7 Web / Cloud migrations service delivery Public Private Application Cloud Cloud virtualization
  3. 3. Stop….for a moment How well do you understand application usage? Did you know that…… Customer Total Devices Number of Applications Example Installed Used Customer example 2,400 1,676 785 1 Customer example 1,450 1,000 541 2 We regularly see that 50% of applications are never used
  4. 4. What does that mean? A very different picture for desktop transformation projects…. Customer Total Devices Number of Applications Applications not Win7 Example compatible Installed Used Based on Based on Used Install Customer 2,400 1,676 785 525 14 example 1 Customer 1,450 1,000 541 187 9 example 2 Windows 7 application compatibility complexity cut by up to 95%
  5. 5. It’s time to really look… Can you answer these questions? • What applications are actually used? • What applications are accessed from web / cloud? • What locations are applications used and accessed from? • What are our maximum concurrency rates? – Of applications – Of users Understanding application usage is a vital planning component
  6. 6. Challenges of desktop transformation projects Which What apps Locations apps Maximum applications from web / accessed from? concurrency are used? cloud? rates?• Spending too much • Bypassed by • Application • Oversizing money users delivery placing virtualisation strain on environments• Managing & • Security risks network maintaining too • Sub optimal many apps • Mobility of users virtual platform delivered
  7. 7. Centrix SoftwareWorkSpace iQEnd-user computing analytics software Understand the user environment and create order A solution that delivers an end point assessment of current client hardware and applications enabling rapid analysis of existing traditional desktop environments WorkSpace iQ provides centralized, aggregated monitoring, reporting and trending on end-user application and asset usage with customizable billing and chargeback capabilities Creates a clear fact-base of how the existing service is actually being consumed
  8. 8. Usage information for desktop transformations Application Windows 7 32 bit compatibility Number of Windows 7 64 users bit compatibility• Understanding application usage streamlines projects such as Windows 7 migrations
  9. 9. Application Concurrency Specific application Maximum users andapplication concurrency • Application concurrency provides insight into planning optimum delivery technology (virtualisation, streaming etc)
  10. 10. Concurrency for desktop virtualisation planning Total Peak Peak Peak application number of application number of users images concurrency sessions• Peak concurrency of applications and images enable desktop virtualisation infrastructure right-sizing
  11. 11. Don’t just listen to us..What do our customers say?
  12. 12. Warwick UniversityChallenge- Needed to understand applicationusage for Windows 7 rollout- No visibility of number of applicationswithin University- Wanted to provide more flexibledesktop image Value - Informed decision-making - Reduced costs - Efficient planning of future infrastructure
  13. 13. Challenge- Needed to understand environmentafter separation of Cheshire Council- Migration from Windows XP- One person, one machine notsustainable- Next generation desktop planning Value - Opportunity for 15% cost reduction on one application set - IT efficiency based on usage patterns - Empirical data for on-going planning
  14. 14. Stop, look, listen Which What apps Locations apps Maximum applications from web / accessed from? concurrency are used? cloud? rates?• Cost reduction • IT visibility • Application • Right-sized delivery virtualisation optimisation infrastructure• Software • Security & rationalisation control
