RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer

Service Information

Every IT project must first consider its impact on the user. It is therefore key to have an accurate insight into your current desktop infrastructure, before making any changes. After all, changes can impact the operating system and important applications. Even if you know what was installed on the laptop or desktop when it was delivered the user, it is often unknown what has happened since then.

How can you, the IT professional, make changes to the hardware, operating system or even application(s) for your users, if you don’t know what is installed and used today?

RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer is here to help

RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer is a free online service that provides insight into the current state of the desktop environment. This insight is a critical first step in any IT project.

RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer will give you a clear insight into your:

  1. Hardware Inventory
  2. Application Landscape
  3. User Population
  4. Location Layout
  5. Printing Topology

This information will help you assess and predict the impact of changes, such as an office relocation, hardware replacement or an upgrade to Windows 7, on your users.

More information can be found at http://resbda.cloudapp.net/Home/MoreInfo
(note: its still a closed beta, so you need an invite. In June 2011 the tool will be available to all public)

In this video at BrianMadden, Gabe Knuth joins RES Software’s Max Ranzau for a demo of their new, free Baseline Desktop Analyzer, or BDA at Citrix Synergy 2011.

Hi, I wondered if you have had any issues installing VIM in VMware ESX 6. We cannot get the correct package to install on ESX. Do you have any good points of reference to get the correct software? Or any VIM troubleshooting tips?

Many thanks
Rob
We are getting this error:
VIM installation error – Suspect TESLA m3 card software is not the right version for ESX6 may have to call NVidia for advice.
