- The VMware User Environment Manager helps place all tools on a virtual desktop, creating ease of access for employees.
- The use of VMware User Environment Manager also helps with addressing problems within a remote environment by limiting those issues to the desktop that it creates. This also helps when issues arise that may need to be addressed for a particular program, and allows us to focus on a problem without affecting the real-time desktop.
- Allowing to log in to different servers quickly is also a benefit. Time is of the essence for many employees, and the ability for employees to take 2 minutes or so to log in to the VMware User Environment Manager helps each employee have additional time to do other tasks.
- VMware User Environment Manager, for some reason, is unable to run Avaya on its platform where I work. This may need to be addressed, as it is somewhat of an issue when launching tools as a remote employee, and we must keep Avaya off the VMware User Environment Manager. This is actually a big problem as we have to switch back and forth between environments to see and utilize Avaya versus the tools on the VMware User Environment Manager.
- In addition to the Avaya issue, there seem to be some issues with up-time. I am not sure if this is solely due to the VMware User Environment Manager, but it does seem that the longer you are on and logged in to the VMware User Environment Manager, issues start occurring.
- Log in time aside, there also seems to be a compatibility issue with the VMware User Environment Manager. We have also run into some problems running older applications on the virtual desktop.
- Managing personal settings for users
- Ability to keep settings while switching to different PCs.
- Helpful when setting up customized settings per user group. Set it once and propagate it to multiple users
- Takes a bit of time to get the hang of.
- If you are setting it up yourself, there will probably be a few calls to support to get the kinks of your environment worked out
- Works well with standard applications, but is a bit cumbersome in setting up in-house built applications.
