End User Computing?
LANStatus defines End User Computing (EUC) as a user-focused productivity approach to computing that is more than just hardware and software. The reality is that EUC is quite complex as it requires the seamless integration of platform, storage, network, security, etc., and user access management rights to applications, data as well as the integration of a companies Abstraction Layer. (see Methodology)
In short, it is ensuring an end user employee can securely access the systems they require to be a productive employee anywhere, anytime and from any device either on-premises or in the cloud.
Hindsight is 20/20, perfect vision.
2020 onward showed the importance and value of having an actionable business resiliency plan. No matter the disruption, business should not nose-dive but rather have the ability to maintain a level of productivity.
Every business has the same core End User Computing infrastructure. Although different technologies may be used, the business requirements, culture, ecosystem, as well as corporate governance, legal and for some company’s, it is considering federal, state, local requirements, are mostly the same.
In short, every client engagement is a solution, custom-designed to meet the specific requirements and operational processes to create a stable foundation for future growth.

End User Computing: Services and Implementation
Use professional services now or after the solution fails?
Correcting mistakes on a production system is costly due to the engineering expertise required to modify a production system!
Utilizing a tactical methodology (Click Here) to deploy EUC technologies validates integration to deliver the intended productive end user experience.
The End User Computing diagram below represents the core technologies we offer but not all that LANStatus provides. (updated 11.2.2022)
Flexibility is required When integrating the separate technologies that make up the EUC Infrastructure. It is more than technologies working in unison but rather how those technologies integrate within the confines of the corporate governance.
Proof of Technology Concept
Our POC is designed for one (1) purpose, ensure the technologies work as intended, period.
EXAMPLE: Client upgrading to Horizon 8, why recommend a POC?
In many cases, a POC is not required when upgrading software however, in this client’s case, there are 2 specific reasons.
- This upgrade could affect critical software, hardware, applications and downtime is not an option for this business.
- The client has special applications, internal processes and compliance regulations with financial penalties so deploying mistakes are not an option.
A Pilot is the live testing for a small segment of users with the purpose of the Pilot is to find flaws, overlooked details and holes in the design!
EXAMPLE: Client has 8,000 Horizon users, so once all applications, software and hardware. The Pilot allows for a live system test with users and this is important for 2 reasons.
- Integration of the company’s Abstraction Layer into the new Horizon 8 ensures all internal processes and regulations of compliance are met.
- Allows company management visibility into a project that has far-reaching implications and assures executive sign-off for a full company-wide rollout.
This is the official rollout of the technology solution for the sole purpose of ensuring a smooth transition to the new infrastructure design!
EXAMPLE: With the Client’s 8,000 Horizon users, we utilized a Phased Deployment with an Accelerated Adoption Plan for 2 reasons.
- Rollout of 8,000 users can have serious implications. Using a phased Deployment allowed the company to slowly (at first) rollout the Horizon 8 to provide minimal impact to users.
- The Accelerated Adoption Plan provides a detailed support plan to speed the adoption of new technology, to both users and support teams.
How Do Managed Services Fit into Deployment?
In simple terms, it accelerates the deployment of any technology solution.
Clients can maintain focus on the their current systems, tasks and the internal support for this solution as it is deployed.
Utilizing Managed Services to supplement and fill the gaps of the current client staffing, provides a smoother and a more manageable deployment of any new technology within their EUC infrastructure.
