Q&A with Brett Johnson of Centrix Software - Page 3
VSM: How are IT organizations dealing with the challenge of delivering cloud-based applications to users, along with virtual and traditional server-based and client-installed applications, while also embracing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)?
BJ: Many companies are beginning to struggle with this challenge, particularly now that consumerization of IT is driving up employee expectations around application and content access. People are used to getting the resources they need when they want them in their personal lives, and see no reason not to get the same level of service at work, even in the face of increasingly complex corporate application environments. They certainly don’t want to enter multiple passwords to access applications that are sourced from the web, VDI, traditional Windows and corporate servers. However, blending service delivery across different sourcing and provisioning platforms is not easy for IT organizations. We’re changing that with Centrix WorkSpace Universal.
WorkSpace Universal is the most mature and comprehensive application and content broker on the market today, in addition to being the only such offering that is fully agnostic to the underlying application and content delivery technologies. Employees can access applications and content sourced from any location and any provider (including VMware, Citrix, Microsoft and cloud app providers) on any device—with just one password. Customers are thrilled because it makes life much easier for their employees and, on the back-end, delivers IT necessary control through policy driven, centralized provisioning and administration.
