Citrix enables secure, remote access to Microsoft Windows applications and desktops as well as Linux, web and SaaS applications from any device, over any network. This is more than VDI; digital business services encompass and support many different technologies that vary significantly from one organization to another. Users getting access to their desktops and applications is the first step, and which is why monitoring the logon performance has become critical for Citrix-based IT services. That's why eG Innovations recently announced a Free Logon Simulator for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop. But that's only a first impression. To make a lasting impact on user experience, the applications and desktops being delivered on top of the Citrix service must also perform, and these digital business services will be comprised of many different components from any number of suppliers. Join John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG innovations, as he discusses how Citrix and eG Enterprise can combine to provide you with end-to-end performance management that can make a lasting impression your users will love.

Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) allows system and application administrators to monitor operations, services, devices and applications within an enterprise through a single console. This single pane of glass can simplify operations, but monitoring the performance of end-to-end digital business services requires more than aggregating measurement data using multiple management packs. From a performance management perspective, unified monitoring is most effective when there’s a single source of actionable truth; it moves us away from diagnosis-related activities and toward collaborating on how to establish self-healing properties when that diagnosis is identified. Not only is this more cost-effective, it’s a more “unifying” activity than troubleshooting. A single pane of glass without an understanding of end-to-end IT service dependencies may just lead to more alert fatigue — little actionable information due to lack of effective correlation and root cause diagnosis. The results are long problem isolation and diagnosis cycles, resulting in poor user experience and increased IT operation costs.

Join this webinar as John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG Innovations, demonstrates how you can achieve end-to-end performance monitoring of Microsoft IT services such as SharePoint, Exchange or custom .Net applications — even if those IT services incorporate non-Microsoft components or cloud services — and unify Microsoft SCOM at the same time.

Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM) isn’t just about tracking end user experience, it’s also about monitoring, analyzing and optimizing the IT environment for those who drive productivity: end-users.

An acknowledged good practice is to catch errors early in the service lifecycle, and shifting application and infrastructure monitoring to pre-production environments should be part of this strategy. But neither application performance management (APM), or infrastructure performance management (IPM) alone will successfully address and solve shift-left monitoring requirements. Supporting IT services, such as Citrix, often do not enable IT administrators to quickly isolate and address the causes of performance bottlenecks in testing, resulting in delays, re-work or increased deployment risk. A converged APM/IPM solution can facilitate true root-cause analysis from an end-to-end IT service perspective, inclusive of both supporting and customer-facing IT services, as well as across multiple service lifecycle stages. In addition, by having all service team members share an easy-to-use interface that is tailored to each of their requirements minimizes learning curves, enhances operational efficiency and ensures user satisfaction by providing a production-grade monitor to IT staff that are working in staging environments. Join eg Innovations for this live webinar where John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing, shares how a converged APM/IPM solution can be leveraged effectively in pre-production.
