LANDesk Sets the Mark for Comprehensive User-Oriented Management Solutions

LANDesk Delivers Total User Management; Designed to Manage, Secure and Support End-Users in Today's Highly Mobile IT Environment

LAS VEGAS (Interchange) - 22 January 2013 - Advancing its position as an innovator and leader in user-oriented management, LANDesk Software today announced the release of Total User Management. LANDesk is taking the lead in helping IT reorient to the new reality; the modern IT environment requires a model that allows the user to manage the totality of their computing needs versus merely managing devices. Total User Management, a powerful and comprehensive selection of key LANDesk IT management technologies, is LANDesk's response to the evolving challenges inherent in the modern IT environment. Mobility and the proliferation of devices have reshaped the relationship between end-users and their work. A new generation of self-reliant users has emerged with an "always on" and "work anywhere" mindset, using multiple devices in their efforts.

"Several years ago we saw that the dynamics of the mobile workforce and its associated work styles were going to force changes in the IT management model," said Steve Workman, vice president of product management, LANDesk Software. "Total User Management is the culmination of LANDesk's acquisition and development strategy to establish our focus right where it needs to be; on the user's productivity. Additionally, this focus and commitment brings about real advantages for IT in delivering freedom to the users, while giving IT greater control."

Total User Management brings together key LANDesk management tools as a single solution, free from per-product licensing and per-connector or per-device add-on fees. Instead, Total User Management is licensed per user and is deployable on an as-needed basis in a user-centric, employee-focused management model. Total User Management combines LANDesk's Secure User Management Suite (released in October 2012) with the capabilities of LANDesk's ITIL-aligned Service Desk and the LANDesk Asset Lifecycle Management system. A more detailed listing of Total User Management features is as follows:

  • Secure User Management:

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
