Get your Citrix Experts excited about SCOM - Video Recording

GripMatix at SCOMathon

We think SCOMathon 2022 was a great success! We are proud we were sponsor of it and it seems we have excited some Citrix engineers indeed that day!
The video recording is available here. Check out the bonus session video recording on user logon duration monitoring and troubleshooting as well.

Go beyond Citrix Director

Because we know there are a lot of misunderstandings when it comes to comparing and applying Citrix monitoring tools, especially when it comes to Citrix Director, the free tool from Citrix, we have explained in our demo session how this tool relates to an Enterprise Monitoring Platform.
We have showed you that Citrix Director is a great tool for deep-diving, like a microscope, but not so great for event detection. You need to go beyond Director, to get that full-scale Single-Pane-of-Glass insight and timely alerting for any issues that occur, or may occur, in your entire Citrix SBC or VDI stack.
We have demo-ed you how you are able to do that with System Center Operations Manager (SCOM); a true Enterprise Monitoring Platform, together with MetrixInsight for CVAD; our SCOM Management Pack solution for Citrix, via SquaredUp; which is a must have HTML5 web console for SCOM.
For our session, we had selected 3 out of dozens of common end user experience issues, that drive your end users nuts, but are not detected by Citrix Director.

Get your Citrix experts excited

Share our video session recording with your Citrix experts to get them excited about SCOM and to have them learn how they could become the rock stars of your organization using SCOM too!
