Founded in 1997, Lakeside's initial objective was to address resource management
concerns experienced by terminal services-based enterprises. Lakeside established
its expertise quickly: we were the creator of the thin-client management software
OEMed and distributed by Citrix Systems, Inc.; SysTrack v1.0 was originally resold
worldwide as Citrix RM (Citrix Resource Manager). Lakeside has extended its
architecture to address the scalability requirements of the Windows desktop and
server markets with SysTrack for physical, virtualized and mixed environments.
Our focus is big data IT analytics: our solutions empower IT professionals with the
actionable intelligence to dramatically reduce infrastructure costs and improve end-user
