Overall Satisfaction with Remote Desktop Manager

I typically say this to people… “Imagine a world where all of the things your users do can be managed in one place and call that island devolution.”

Instead of these users trying to figure out what they’re doing next and having a messy blob of sessions open, everything is organized, embedded, and fast. Lawyers are demanding (and insanely expensive) so the faster production moves, the better off everyone is. I feel like RDM was a critical part of our company’s story… from start-up to the acquisition by Xerox which later split off BPO divisions into Conduent. The ability to keep people focused on the end zone kept my sanity in check and our success driven.

  • Batch edit – I have far too many sessions that require user specific modifications
  • Users, Groups, Roles – Critical when fine tuning user experience/destructiveness
  • Macro/Scripts/Tools – Just plain handy and usable… continuous ping for all of those reboots.
  • Love it.
  • Ingest of endpoints/sessions - Could be easier.
  • Memory requirements... not sure there's anything they can do about that since it's not really reinventing the sessions.
  • It's cheap... like too cheap to worry about.
  • It reclaims a ton of hours otherwise spent fumbling around with different sessions.
They don't even compare. Nothing really compares. RDM is pretty amazing.
Session Management – With around 2000 entries, I guess this goes without saying. I remember a time
when there were a growing number of sessions to manage and the software available was pretty
difficult to use and lacked the functionality that I needed.

User Experience/Hatemail – The interesting thing about this business is that many of the users also need
roughly the same session management tools to do production work. They focus on the applications at
the endpoint whereas I focus on the endpoint. This means that they don’t have time/energy to figure
out the sessions and if things aren’t easy for them… well… work slows and they get frustrated… at me.

Security – Due to the above, I needed to be able to figure out where/what the users were doing as well
as what they were exposed to and able to access.
