Overall Satisfaction with Citrix Profile Management

I'm a user of Citrix Profile Management in my organization. I always thought it was not a real software or a program, just a utility as the installation and configuration were well-made by the system administrators of the company I was working for. As for me, it's a kind of transparent utility.
  • Virtualization
  • Start a remote desktop
  • Manage a remote desktop screen inside Windows
  • Improve UX-UI
  • When there's an error starting the remote desktop, offer a trouble-shooting wizard.
  • Improve maximize-minimize-full screen remote desktop functionality.
  • Open remote desktops.
  • Configure several profiles as required.
  • Configure distinct permissions for each profile.
  • Saving on hardware purchase because virtually you can run a super powerful ERP with an old Intel i3 CPU.
  • You need and should invest anyway and anyhow on robust, strong, stable internet connections and load balancing solutions to use Citrix products at the best.
  • Implementing a new ERP solution based on Citrix remote desktop and profiles in almost no time after the connection infrastructure part is solved.
Well, I really did not select it, but generally, as those products and solutions are very expensive and purchased on a corporative level, I used them as a user or a system IT manager... Citrix has almost no competitors that we can call like that really... it's the de-facto standard nowadays but I feel like that sense of supremacy and overall superiority threw Citrix company into a dark tunnel of blindness and missing opportunities conditions of leveraging the product to the next level and taking the opportunity to innovate and do more with less. Just take into consideration the MB heaviness of the Citrix Profile Management installer... it grows years after years... many MB and... the same solution and option... what a shame!

I used Citrix in several ways and for several needs around several companies around the world. Not only tech companies but also flower companies were we migrated from on-premises ERP to cloud ERP. I think, based on my experience that if you have not so powerful computers and hardware it's nice to run Citrix remote desktop perhaps with a cloud app ERP on it but the internet connection has to stay always reliable and stable, better if you have 2 or more internet connections balanced each other with Peplink load balancing solution. A weak point is the internet connection. As for me, I don't like using Citrix solutions just to open a SharePoint folder or even a Jira.. total a waste of time.
