Dare To Compare — You’ll be Glad You Did!

Hi, I am Chris Akerberg, President and COO of Liquidware Labs. I’ve never been one to write blogs but I felt compelled to share a few of my thoughts during this very exciting time in our market space. You’ve probably been hearing a lot of noise about upcoming innovations from the key players in desktop technologies.  All this noise, for us, is great news. We are happy the market is getting further educated on the true value of cutting-edge developments in User Environment Management,  Application Layering and End-user Visibility.  Today, VMware has given this feature set a specific name ( Workspace Environment Management).  Whatever you want to call it we have believed for years these key elements would be needed to successfully deploy VDI – especially non-persistent VDI — remember those debates during VMworld 2013 spearheaded by Gunnar Berger?dare2compare2015 However, the reality is that, we at Liquidware Labs have been quietly and confidently promoting this vision and executing on this strategy since our inception in 2009.  It is validating and exciting to see the market “heat up” recently over these core pillars of VDI and desktop management.  We haven’t been making noise, but we’ve been making some serious progress. And we ask that you “Dare To Compare” us against any other offerings on the market today.  You can trial and learn more about our Essentials Suite Bundle or TRY 25 FREE licenses today. You will be glad you did. Continue reading
