Bloomfield Hills, Michigan — August 9, 2012 — Lakeside Software announced today that the company and VMware have renewed their agreement to utilize SysTrack IT business intelligence tools to deliver virtualization projects. The contractual relationship reflects a recommitment to the partnership between the two companies to assist customers and partners in adopting desktop virtualization based on VMware View™.

Under the terms of the agreement between the companies, VMware Technical Services Professionals (VTSPs), including the VMware Professional Services Organization (PSO), may continue to leverage Lakeside Software SysTrack assessment, design and planning tools to support and accelerate VMware View and VMware ThinApp™ deployment opportunities in presales and postsales desktop assessments. VMware Professional Services Partners around the world may continue to leverage SysTrack software in desktop virtualization projects.

SysTrack is a powerful tool suite for helping organizations plan and optimize application delivery strategies, realize substantial savings in desktop and application costs — all while optimizing the end user experience.
