#Citrix Virtual Desktop Handbook 5.x – #XenDesktop, #XenApp

Ok, this is a pretty good handbook I must admit. Have a look at it here!

And if you need help then of course you can always contact EnvokeIT! šŸ˜‰

And here is a good blog post about this as well by Thomas Berger:

One of the foundational project management principals is that project success occurs when it is delivered on time, within budget and with a level of quality that is satisfactory to the client. Of course these three dimensions are valid for any desktop virtualization project as well.

While a lot of information about budget planning and TCO/ROI for virtual desktop / application delivery projects can be found on the internet (e.g.Ā http://flexcast.citrix.com/analyzeandcompare.html), the amount of information about time planning and success criteria is very low.

Since this lack of publicly available information causes every customer to ā€œreinvent the wheelā€ and therefore add some delays to their projects, we thought itā€™s time to provide some guidance around these topics.

The result of our efforts has become part of the newly released Citrix Virtual Desktop Handbook (http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX136546). Version 1 of this white paper focuses on the Assess phase that identifies the information required prior to starting the design phase and outlines the project management tasks I mentioned earlier.

But instead of just discussing the topics from a theoretical point of view, we provide detailed guidance and tools which can be used for your projects right away. For example you will get a sample project plan (Microsoft Project), which outlines and provides duration estimates for every step of a desktop virtualization project (sample below).

Furthermore the white paper discusses a general project methodology, describes how business priorities can be identified and provides detailed information about the roles required during a enterprise grade project (sample below).

This and even more can be found within the new Citrix Virtual Desktop Handbook..
