Goliath Technologies has announced a new release of its industry-leading technology with enhanced embedded intelligence and automation, raising the bar for end-user performance monitoring and troubleshooting for environments built on Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop or VMware Horizon platforms whether on-premises or in the cloud (e.g. AWS, Azure). With the new Goliath Performance Monitor 11.8, Goliath’s unified view of end-user experience data across any hybrid landscape, IT is positioned to proactively ensure a great end-user experience regardless of where end users or workloads are located.
IT Pros Become Proactive Problem Solvers Across Citrix and VMware Horizon Environments with Goliath Technologies
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop or the VMware Horizon IT delivery stack is complex consisting of a mix of virtual servers, hardware servers, network technologies, peripheral devices, and apps, along with a mix of on-premises and cloud technologies. End-user behaviors have changed, too, with workers now accessing technology remotely and from multiple devices. All this has increased the complexity and made it harder to diagnose productivity problems. Understanding where problems are stemming from and how to address them today requires tools that are purpose-built for essentially any hybrid landscape.
“Today, our most skilled IT professionals are in continuous reaction mode,” said Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO of Goliath Technologies. “They’re battling user productivity challenges impacted by the complex delivery infrastructure from Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop and VMware Horizon along with the unpredictable and changing user behaviors. We believe IT can and must break out of reaction mode, becoming a proactive and preventive enabler of end-user productivity. But doing so requires a purpose-built tool that leverages embedded intelligence and automation to deliver a single view of all performance data that monitors the myriad of IT infrastructure elements that impact the user experience.”
Goliath Technologies’ new release includes granular metrics that help IT quickly troubleshoot and resolve issues in hours, not days. It automates early warning alerts to provide IT with time to resolve issues before end users are disrupted. And, by leveraging objective evidence from reports and analytics, IT can readily diagnose root causes and collaborate with cross-departmental counterparts and vendors with confidence to create permanent solutions.
“Goliath Technologies is our must-have partner when it comes to quickly identifying issues and resolving them for our users,” said Dan Morrison, Director, IT I&O at Penn National Insurance. “With the new views, charts, and screens, we’ll have immediate access to the data we need to keep everyone productive. And the solid foundation Goliath provides in objective data reporting helps us prevent finger-pointing between our IT teams, external vendors as well as all internal stakeholders.”
