eG Innovations Showcases Industry's First Xen Dashboard for Unified Performance Management of the Citrix Ecosystem

Xen Dashboard Simplifies, Accelerates and Reduces Costs for Management of All Citrix Platforms

ISELIN, NJ and LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- eG Innovations today announced that it will be showcasing at Citrix Synergy 2014 a live preview of eG Xen Dashboard, a new performance dashboard to dramatically simplify management of all Citrix platforms, applications and users through a single interface to deliver high performance, user satisfaction and Citrix deployment success. eG Innovations is showcasing the new Xen Dashboard for the first time at Citrix Synergy 2014, May 6 - 8, in booth # 412.

Citrix has evolved into a rich ecosystem with products including Citrix XenDesktop, XenApp, XenServer, NetScaler, Provisioning Services, Cloud, StoreFront, ShareFile, XenMobile, and VDI-in-a-Box. Managing this rich environment through multiple administration consoles slows responsiveness, increases support cost and can negatively impact user experience and productivity. Xen Dashboard is designed to simplify, accelerate and reduce cost for management of all Citrix platforms.

"Performance and user experience are key for the many use cases enabled by Citrix technologies, including BYOD, virtual desktops, flex work, remote partner access, or call center transformation," said Matt Wrabley, Vice President of Business Development at eG Innovations. "The eG Xen Dashboard marks the first solution in the market to collect and analyze performance data across all Citrix platforms, while presenting it in a unified and integrated fashion to support role-specific use cases such as migration management, troubleshooting, reporting, and capacity planning in a central, intuitive dashboard. This centralized dashboard approach dramatically simplifies Citrix management, delivers ease of use and allows for rapid identification of performance problems."

Key features and benefits of the Xen Dashboard include:

  • New customizable dashboards that allow administrators to track the health of every Citrix tier -- XenApp, XenDesktop, Provisioning services, Licensing, XenMobile, XenServer and Sharefile -- from a single pane.

  • Citrix administrators, architects and helpdesk staff can easily monitor and manage every tier of the Citrix infrastructure from a single, unified dashboard. eG Xen Dashboard provides real-time views of all critical Citrix components and IT systems, giving enterprise IT staff deep performance visibility into Citrix and IT environments and their interdependencies. With the dashboard, IT administrators, helpdesk and Citrix service owners will find it easier to analyze and diagnose even the most complex heterogeneous environments, deliver superior end-user experience in order to get maximum ROI out of Citrix investments. Xen Dashboard gives IT unprecedented, end to end, real-time and historical visibility on how Citrix users are doing, and how Citrix apps and infrastructure are performing.

  • Broadest management coverage of Citrix technologies in the industry, out of the box, including Citrix XenDesktop, XenApp, XenServer, NetScaler, Provisioning Services, Cloud, StoreFront, and VDI-in-a-Box. Now also supporting ShareFile and XenMobile to enable success and user satisfaction for BYOD and enterprise mobility.

  • eG Xen Dashboard also integrates with the Citrix Monitor service built into the XenApp/XenDesktop architecture, in addition to integration with Citrix Director / EdgeSight. This provides customers with in-depth insights into key performance indicators that are collected by the Citrix Monitor service, including failed desktops, user connection failures, failed OS machines, user logon performance, etc.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
