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:

CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, shared success stories from a few folks who have already started using VM-aware storage. By managing storage operations at the VM-level, they’ve been able to solve their most vexing storage problems, and create infrastructures that scale to meet the needs of their applications. Best of all, they’ve got predictable, manageable storage performance – at a level conventional storage can’t match. ...

Traditional IT, great for stable systems of record, is struggling to cope with newer, agile systems of engagement requirements coming straight from the business. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, William Morrish, General Manager of Product Sales at Interoute, will outline ways of exploiting new architectures to enable both systems and building them to support your existing platforms, with an eye for the future.
