Overall Satisfaction with VMware User Environment Manager

Used for the inside staff of our organization. Very helpful with deploying new machines to users when the refresh cycle comes up. All the settings that the user has set on their PC get transferred over to their new machine when the time comes, and there is very little involvement from the IT staff.
  • 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.
  • Positive: Ability to create floating pools through VMware Horizon, and the user can log in to any PC and have the best experience. No more dedicated PCs.
  • Positive: No wasted time in transferring over old profile data to a new PC.
  • Negative: A bit of work to set up and get working properly.
VMware User Environment Manager is very well suited for environments such as call center PCs and where users log on to different PCs (floating PCs). All their settings come over, and no matter what computer they log into they have everything that they customized from their last session. Very helpful when setting up floating pools with VMware Horizon.
