Real-Time Design and Ongoing Deployment Planning
IT Infrastructure is constantly evolving. Users’ application needs and supporting
hardware are in a state of constant change. IT executives and decision makers need
real-time insight into their environment including guidance for optimizing their
physical or virtual desktop OS upgrades, hardware changes and application migrations. To develop
an agile delivery plan for complex and constantly changing user environments requires a thorough
understanding of all aspects of enterprise IT.
SysTrack Transform generates real-time, dynamically updating analytics, reporting
dashboards and workflow to enable IT to manage their transformation projects from
initial design/architecture through steady state.
Detailed Plans Based on Real-World Data
SysTrack Transform leverages the unparalleled insight into user behavior and requirements gathered by
SysTrack to allow the construction of detailed plans based on real-world data while remaining flexible
through dynamic plan evolution. The ability to automatically adapt to needs as they arise and track
new elements as they are introduced makes SysTrack Transform the perfect technology for planning and
executing transformation in the workplace. It is this flexibility and the interoperability with SysTrack’s
existing architecture design framework that gives designers and project planners all of the information
and functionality they will need to optimize their unique landscape.

- Improved Project Status
- User Satisfaction
- Lower Costs
- Faster Implementations
SysTrack Data Platform Architecture
SysTrack Transform is an extension to the SysTrack data platform architecture that utilizes
SysTrack data to continuously assess application and workload requirements, and
update and optimize your transformation plan.
Continuous Transformation Improvement
SysTrack Virtual Machine Planner (VMP) collects data for a period of time
in order to generate a point-in-time snapshot of what your desktop virtualization
environment should look like. This includes things like virtualization host hardware
configurations, storage, networking, applications, desktop images, and more, all at a
very granular level.
SysTrack Transform takes that a step further, using the same data to plan environments
on a day-by-day basis. So now, instead of a one-shot report, Transform will watch the
environment and make tweaks to what your virtualization environment should look like on a
Deep SysTrack Analytics
SysTrack Transform monitors your user base via the existing SysTrack Image Provisioning Planner (IPP) tool, watching what
users are doing to decide which image they need, which applications they need, and how
those applications are best delivered on an ongoing basis. It can determine, for instance,
that a user needs a certain image, plus x-number of applications (installed, streamed,
RDSH, etc…). It can also determine whether those one-off apps are ready to be delivered
to users, like if an app hasn't been sequenced yet.
Compatibility Database Compatibility
SysTrack Transform also plugs into Citrix® AppDNA™, a Microsoft® Windows® application compatibility database, or
your own compatibility database to
determine where applications should live (in the image, streamed, or otherwise). It can
even use empirical data observed by SysTrack to determine compatibility, since the agent
can see applications running or not running on an OS. All this adds up to a system that
can determine not only what your virtualization environment should look like, but also
whether or not certain users are ready to be migrated.
“SysTrack Transform is the first IT analytics tool to factor real-time, real-world user and application data into image planning.
SysTrack Transform leverages the SysTrack DataMine’s unparalleled data granularity and depth to deliver faster implementations at lower cost with higher user satisfaction.
We’re excited to introduce SysTrack Transform to our customers.”
