Forget the FUD, try it for yourself toe-2-toe

OK recently I have been in debate where it’s been insinuated that a doer of FUD, a FUDmiester a Muddy FUDster is leading the debate. I’ve always been a person that trusts in products after getting to know the product from a technical perspective. I work in vendor land and I would be the first person to complain at the product managers if I felt something was poor or needed improving. One thing I feel I’m akin to is the technical community and never felt what I say is marketing waffle. I reflect at my time with my previous employer and what we did was challenged people to try our product toe-2-toe with our competitors. “Try us in the lab” we would say. We felt it important to win the hearts and minds of the technical community and that’s what I’m going to get back to with Liquidware Labs. Forget the salesman, forget the fluffy marketing pitches, let’s get back to the nitty gritty and “try us in the lab”

I’m going to start series of blog posts showing how easy Profile Unity is easy to use but first I challenge you to try it yourself first. The things I guarantee you will find out are the following things:

  1. Deployment is really quick compared to our competitors
  2. Deployment has a very small foot-print compared to our competitors
  3. It is easy to use
  4. Our competitor have features we don’t have and we have features they don’t have
  5. Profile Unity will do most(if not all) of what you need to do in persona management at a lower cost

If you are up for the challenge before I start recording my series of posts this is what you need to do:

Step 1. Download and eval from >HERE<

Step 2. Watch these videos to get you going:

Step 3. Setup some kind of persona management element like redirect folder or publish ThinApp application

OK now there’s a few things I want you to be aware of:

  • You will notice that we recommend installing our client exe in the NetLogon share. This is an OPTION at the end of the day and you can install it in any share you want. Some FUDmongers are suggesting that we mess about with Active Directory and it’s unsecure. This lets me know these people know nothing and are clearly not aware that a) Netlogon is Microsoft’s recommended area for storing logon scripts and such. b) Netlogon is a quick way of deploying and replicating our client exe. At the end of the day its a share and you can use any other share you desire. Also NetLogon has the correct read permissions and would save you some time and effort.
  • We suggest tying usage against an AD security group called ProfileUnity. Don’t be fooled that you are restricted to where you can apply elements to. You can apply Profile Unity elements to any Security Group, OU computer etc etc etc etc whatever you want.

So to conclude: forget the waffle, try it for yourself and if it works for you, it works for you.
