"Ivanti for System Upgrades"

What do you like best?

The Ivanti Workspace is a good tool for pushing updates to computers on a broad network of connected computers, particularly in a company with several thousand employees. Pushing the upgrades through a platform such as Ivanti enables employees to access the upgrades independently, without intervention from an IT employee.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the pushes for updates occur at different times for different individuals, so some employees may not be able to access the updates in Ivanti immediately. It is also critical to ensure that employees understand all of the nuances of the Workspace, such as the need to hit "refresh" or to restart their machines in order to see a new update available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know that not all updates will be pushed onto the Workspaces for each employee at the same time. So, if you have not received your update and others have, it may eventually reach you. Just be patient. Also, make sure to press the "refresh" button if you cannot find your update - it may be there but you made need to update your application before it will appear.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in a large company that has a limited number of IT specialists for a large number of employees. Using the Ivanti Workspace Manager enables the IT department to push out system upgrades to all employees at once without the need for individual attention to each machine/employee.

"Ivanti Workspace manager for Profile migration"

What do you like best?

Ivanti Work space manager, formerly appsense desktop now is a fantastic application which can be used to quickly migrate user profiles from one pc to another. This is especially valuable when the profile which needs to moved is a high value member of the organization. For example, a c suite member or perhaps a key developer in the organization. This allows a company to easily mitigate down time and lost revenue / productivity.

What do you dislike?

The application has changed names several times over the last few years and at times the online documentation is out dated. This makes it difficult to set up the application quickly without the need for professional services. Installation should be straight forward at the users level after setting up and configuring the server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to have a dedicated admin who can spend several days researching and understanding the setup and admin of this application. Its not a quick grab and go application.
