We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We haven't received any complaints or performance issues so far."
"Most of our customers are using the load balancing feature and also the verification feature is good as well, in my experience."
"The initial setup is simple. Normally with all setups, it's not very complicated. It really depends on the customer."
"The solution is very stable. If I were to rate it out of ten, I would give stability a nine."
"The stability of the solution is perfect."
"The features that we have found most valuable are the web app support and VPN."
"It's a stable solution while it's running. We don't have to work on it a lot. There are not many bugs, so it's easy to use if you deploy successfully. You can be sure of an uninterrupted solution for quite a long time. Citrix is a good product."
"What I find most valuable about this solution, is that it runs seamlessly."
"We used to have a system before, Mac OS Open Directory server and this open directory became obsolete because Apple decided to stop the enterprise market, so there was no other alternative for us to use. We chose this to replace the open directory and we found that it has many more features than the previous solution. We totally rely on it right now to manage all the devices on campus."
"The feature that we find most valuable is the corporate email pushing."
"Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple."
"A very easy to use solution."
"The most valuable feature is policy-driven control of the devices."
"The remote management and location capabilities are good."
"The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol."
"VMware Workspace ONE has been stable so far."
"The load balancing could be improved."
"If the solution had a more advanced DNS, it would be an improvement."
"I'd like to see support for reverse proxy and more security features."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"The solution can be a bit pricey."
"The dashboard or interface should be more clear in reporting issues. Integration with other applications should be more user-friendly."
"The major issue is price. I would also like them to make other aspects more accessible."
"I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification."
"The mobile device repository is somewhat difficult to manage with a large user base."
"Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace."
"Cost of licensing is quite high."
"When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM."
"The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user."
"The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved."
"It's not accurate enough when it comes to sending items to end-users."
"From an identity perspective, there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to integration with other solutions. I would say it needs more capabilities in terms of direct integrations, including cloud identity solution integrations."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Usually with Citrix the issue is the pricing, especially for the African region. We believe it's really expensive."
"Pricing is very high if you do a comparison with what is available in the market."
"I believe the pricing is comparable to SaaS"
"If you purchase it for one year, it is very expensive. If you get it for three years or up to five years, then you can bargain a better price."
"There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified."
"The cost is a little bit high."
"VMware Workspace ONE is not cheap; it's quite expensive. However, in the end, they gave us a reasonable price."
"If you have a host of custom requirements (including licensing), make sure to set aside enough time for the initial setup because it can take up to a few weeks depending on how complex your environment is."
"I think that the price is reasonable."
