Description

Rounding out this mid-learning path exploration of the activities in user experience management, conclude with a look at what can seem at first to be a rather strange collection of features in a single tool. Workspace Environment Manager is a performance and resource management solution that is also a kind of Group Policy and Group Policy Preferences replacement, that can also convert PCs into thin clients, and then some other things.

So, yes, a strange collection, but also a powerful one.

In this course, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (CVAD): Integrate Workspace Environment Management, you'll begin by disentangling all these feature sets that make up the WEM solution to help you understand where it fits in our CVAD, formerly XenDesktop, environment. First, you'll deploy its services into the lab environment. Next, you'll use WEM to customize user experience configurations that will seem similar and very different than their equivalent with GPOs and GPPs. Finally, you'll dig into WEM's resource optimization and transformer features to help you understand where these capabilities fit best with your VDAs. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to continue on to explore advanced management, and migrate to Citrix Cloud.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the seventh course in my learning path about installing and managing Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, also known as CVAD. I am author evangelist and a full‑time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been building, managing, and helping others with Citrix environments since the days this product was known as WinFrame. Rounding out this mid‑learning path exploration of the activities and user experience management, we conclude with a look at what can seem at first to be a rather strange collection of features in a single tool. Workspace Environment Manager is a performance and resource management solution that is also a kind of Group Policy and Group Policy Preferences replacement that can also convert PCs into thin clients, and then some other things as well. So yes, a strange collection, but also a powerful one. In this seventh course out of nine, we'll begin by disentangling all these feature sets that make up the WEM solution to help you understand where it fits into our CVAD environment. Next, we'll deploy its services into the lab environment, including the console and agents to be installed on our VDAs. Then, we'll use WEM to customize user experience configurations that will seem both similar and very different than their equivalent with GPOs and GPPs. Finally, we'll dig into WEM's resource optimization and transformer features to help you understand where these capabilities fit best with your VDAs. If you've just been tasked with building a new Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environment, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we explore advanced management and migrate to the Citrix Cloud. Let's get started.
