IGEL introduced the IGEL Thin Client assessment tool powered by Lakeside Software SysTrack Workspace Analytics.

Designed to augment visibility into IGEL OS-powered endpoints, SysTrack leverages a virtual channel to provide IT organizations with a robust set of workspace analytics that gathers endpoint metrics such as CPU performance, system memory, disk usage, peripheral devices, network connectivity and latency directly from the enterprise's IGEL-powered endpoints. Next, SysTrack directly ties the collected data to the endpoint's active Citrix VDI sessions and presents IT organizations with telemetry they can then use to monitor, analyze and optimize their IGEL and end-user computing (EUC) environments.

Simon Clephan, VP of Business Development and Strategic Alliances, IGEL, said: "By teaming with Lakeside and leveraging SysTrack Workspace Analytics at the endpoint, we are effectively positioning the end-user at the center of IT, which is resulting in both a more optimized EUC environment and better performing endpoints."

Among IGEL's family of Citrix Ready endpoint solutions that can now be monitored using SysTrack are the IGEL OS-powered Universal Desktop (UD) series multi-protocol thin clients, the IZ Series zero clients optimized for VDI environments, and the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC) which converts any x86-based endpoint, regardless of manufacturer or form factor, into an IGEL OS-powered desktop, all of which are managed through the industry-leading IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) software.

Dan Salinas, VP of Sales and Business Development, Lakeside Software, said: "Together, we are eliminating the guesswork when it comes to optimizing VDI rollouts and endpoint performance. By providing IT organizations with endpoint visibility into their EUC infrastructure, we are enabling them to benefit from a quantifiable experience that they can quantify and improve over time."
