CUT LOGON TIMES

Long logons annoy

It's true. In fact, research indicates that after a 30-second wait, 71% of end users will perform personal tasks for up to five minutes, costing the company time and money and leaving unlocked devices open to security breaches.

In addition to decreased user productivity, protracted logon times can drive poor user acceptance of desktop virtualization and higher service desk call volume. Ending long logons builds end-user confidence in IT, reduces IT costs, and contributes to improved productivity for all.

Eliminate the causes of long logons

Traditional roaming profiles, logon scripts, and Group Policy Objects are the leading causes of prolonged logons. Eliminate them, and your users log on faster. How do we do it? Read the solution sheet below.

Eliminate profile corruption
Monolithic profiles stored at logoff are prone to corruption. Instead, save and restore personalization only when it’s required.
Just-in-time personalization
Instead of applying one bloated profile at logon, stream personalization just-in-time throughout the session.
Get granular
Using granular policies instead of cumbersome logon scripts speeds logons and gives IT more control.
Tame Group Policy Objects (GPOs)
When GPO complexity spins out of control, logon times grow and users protest. Replace GPOs with fast, on-demand actions.
Simplify policy management
Simplified, centralized, point-and-click policy management enables logon actions to be applied simultaneously, eliminating the need to sequentially load long, complex scripts at logon.

How Ivanti can help

Solutions from Ivanti eliminate the need to rely on traditionally bulky user profiles, unwieldy logon scripts, and complex Group Policy Objects—speeding user logons. End users get to work faster, call the service desk less often, and become advocates for IT.

Environment Manager
Environment Manager is a policy- and personalization-management tool that allows IT to fully personalize each user’s desktop, on-demand, without the need for cumbersome profiles or scripts—even in standardized desktop environments.

Speed user logons

With Environment Manager, users start working quickly without prolonged logons.

User settings rollback

The self-service rollback capabilities of Environment Manager allow users to restore application and desktop settings to a preferred working state. This eliminates the need for IT to delete corrupted profiles and the resultant user downtime. 

Point-and-click policy definition

IT can define granular policies that adapt based on context, using a scalable, point-and-click interface. In addition, Environment Manager captures all user-specific customizations to the operating system and applications as they happen.

Contextual policy

Environment Manager replaces cumbersome logon scripts with fine-grained policy that is applied based on context. The user logs on as fast as possible to a consistent desktop. 

No more profile corruption

Rather than utilizing monolithic, corruption-prone user profiles, Environment Manager stores user settings on a per-user, per-application basis in a highly scalable infrastructure that streams personalization on-demand to any Windows platform.

Eliminate logon scripts and GPOs

Environment Manager decouples user data from the desktop environment and manages this data independently of the device. A point-and-click, parallel-processing engine centralizes policy management without relying on logon scripts or GPOs.
