AppSense Teams with Enterprise Systems to Fuel U.S. Adoption of Virtualization Environments

5000 Fast-Growing Channel Provider Sees AppSense as Critical to Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Offering

AppSense announced that it is partnering with Enterprise Systems to extend its VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) offerings to customers throughout the U.S. Southwest, particularly those in the healthcare market.

Based in Golden, CO, Enterprise Systems is "one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S." according to Inc. magazine and a "Computer Reseller News Fast Growth 100." It counts Denver Health, Memorial Health Systems and Bonfils Blood as healthcare clients. AppSense is the longstanding policy and personalization management leader in the healthcare market, with customers such as Utah Heartland Health, Wellpoint, Banner Health and Catholic Health Initiatives, among others.

While both AppSense and Enterprise Systems share a strong relationship with Citrix, Rob Piwowarczyk, founder and president of Enterprise Systems, says he wanted to establish a partnership that leverages AppSense's user environment management expertise for VDI and other delivery mechanisms, as well as its extensive experience with healthcare IT organizations.

"We have been focusing on the application virtualization space for several years but within the past year, the desktop virtualization market has become a very hot market," says Piwowarczyk. "By establishing a strong partnership with AppSense, the leading provider of user environment management solutions to the healthcare sector, we are providing customers with a technically superior solution for complex IT environments."

"Enterprise Systems and AppSense intimately understand that, in order to ensure enterprise-wide adoption of VDI, companies must be able to easily and efficiently personalize virtual desktops for all of their users," says Paul Szemerenyi, VP Sales, Americas for AppSense. "We are excited to work with Enterprise Systems in bringing this critical enabler for VDI implementations to the market."

AppSense reported a 50 percent increase in U.S. revenue for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2008 and is aggressively focusing on the U.S. market. AppSense software facilitates enterprise-scale adoption of VDI by enabling organizations to reduce VDI implementation costs and personalize standardized virtual desktops. By decoupling both corporate policy and personalization data from the desktop, managing them independently and applying them on-demand, AppSense's solution lets IT departments use a combination of desktop and application delivery methods, and transparently migrate users from physical to virtual desktops.
