FusionStorm Launches Cisco Digital Network Architecture Demonstration Lab

Customers can simulate software-driven Cisco network deployments at low risk

San Francisco, Calif. – November 20, 2018 – FusionStorm, an award-winning IT solutions provider, has established a demonstration lab at its Silicon Valley Integration Center to give customers hands-on experience with Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA).

The lab features a suite of hardware, software and services that enable robust testing and simulation to the end-user on how this technology would perform as part of a customer’s technology stack. This provides the basis for a highly automated and digital-ready network that will help organizations boost innovation, reduce costs and lower risk. It also dramatically streamlines operational tasks through drag-and-drop provisioning, automatic device discovery, proactive troubleshooting, immediate remediation guidance and fast network segmentation.

The primary benefit of Cisco DNA is IT agility and scale. Through policy-based automation, IT can rapidly roll out services across hundreds of devices and sites.

“Our Cisco DNA Lab is designed to replicate an enterprise network,” says Matt Harris, Technical Marketing Director for FusionStorm’s Cisco Practice. “Customers can conduct real-time demonstrations of the platform to gather test requirements, create plans and documentation, and design POC and POV testing plans. This allows IT teams to go over details and discuss critical aspects of the project while utilizing Cisco networking, hardware, and software, giving them a complete snapshot of what their network would look like on Cisco DNA.”

Testing with Cisco DNA can also help to minimize the risk of implementing new technologies. “Inadequately tested configuration changes or updates can expose customers to a variety of risks, so there’s huge amounts of value in being able to test in a live demonstration environment,” Harris adds. “The Cisco DNA Lab offers customers the ability to understand the impact of new technologies, without putting the production environment at risk.”

Once POC testing with the DNA lab concludes, customers can easily roll out a network deployment. Organizations that design a network using Cisco DNA-ready solutions can leverage the power of the network to streamline operations, reduce costs, detect and contain threats, and continuously align the network to business needs. Increased levels of automation and analytics help create a network that is constantly learning, adapting and protecting to make sure applications, users and devices receive the service they need.

Cisco DNA utilizes an open, extensible and software-driven approach to make the network simpler to manage and more agile and responsive to business needs. Virtualized services enable a more dynamic network that can easily provision, expand and reallocate services quickly across different hardware platforms.

Flexera AdminStudio 2018 Decreases the Need for Repackaging; Introduces Innovative Vendor Command Line Support and Wrapping Features

Application Readiness Solution Suggests Silent Command Line Options and Quick Wrapping of Installers Using PowerShell or Wise Script Editor for Consistent, Custom Deployments

Maidenhead, U.K. – November 20, 2018 – Flexera, the company that’s reimagining how software is bought, sold, managed and secured, today announced the release of AdminStudio 2018 R3, the industry-leading integrated Application Readinesssolution for reliable packaging, virtualisation and management of Windows, Mac and mobile applications. AdminStudio continues to help enterprises eliminate much of the risk and inefficiency around preparing application deployments and updates via centralised Application Readiness best practice processes and automation.

Integration with VMware Workspace ONE
Workspace ONE has extended its capabilities beyond management of mobile devices and applications management – to a complete, unified, end-user management solution managing desktops and desktop application deployments.

AdminStudio has long featured seamless integration with AirWatch to hand off mobile apps from AdminStudio for deployments on managed devices. Now with improved support for desktop applications in Workspace ONE, packages can be directly published from AdminStudio – eliminating time-consuming, manual steps.

VMware Workspace ONE continues to extend its leadership in unified endpoint management (UEM) by offering management capabilities beyond mobile devices and apps to the complete lifecycle of desktops and desktop apps, including for Windows 10.

AdminStudio features seamless integration with Workspace ONE to hand off apps for deployments on managed mobile and desktop devices. Further, with improved support for desktop/Win32 applications in Workspace ONE, packages can now be directly published from AdminStudio, eliminating time-consuming manual steps.

“With this integration, we aim to reduce the complexity and cost associated with repackaging Win32 apps so that IT admins can worry about more strategic tasks at hand,” said Jason Roszak, Senior Director of Product Management, End User Computing at VMware. “With the ability to automatically test, remediate, manage and deploy any app across all environments, IT can focus on providing employees with a great end-to-end user experience rather than on the tactics of getting apps ready for them.”

Microsoft’s MSIX Suitability Assessment and Conversion
AdminStudio introduced suitability support earlier this year. This helped administrators assess their current package formats for suitability for conversion to the new Microsoft MSIX format. With AdminStudio 2018 R3, administrators can take the next step in converting installers into deployable MSIX packages.

Enhanced package suitability and conversion features help enterprises easily unlock the value of MSIX. Flexera now provides proactive assessment of an organisation’s current apps, to make the right decisions and take the correct actions – before migrating to MSIX.

Vendor Command Line Support
Determining vendor command line arguments for silent installation can be a manual, time-consuming and burdensome task.

“Repackaging legacy setups for silent deployment is becoming increasingly less common. Over the years, software vendors have done a good job providing basic command line support for silent installation,” said Bob Kelly, Manager of Product Management at Flexera. “Determining what silent, command-line options are possible has been a massive challenge for IT. AdminStudio’s new ability to recommend silent, command-line arguments directly makes life easier and speeds the application deployment process.”

This vast time saver for IT eliminates the need to research supported vendor command-line arguments for each application.

EXE Wrapping
Repackaging an application, or customising using a transform file account for two out of three of the common deployment scenarios, is prevalent today. Increasingly popular is the process of wrapping a vendor’s installer with supported, command-line options for a consistent deployment. AdminStudio can wrap packages into PowerShell script files, leveraging the PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit, but now adds the ability to wrap packages into customizable executable packages.

Second only to PowerShell, has been the use of Wise Script Editor to create executable file wrappers. This GUI-driven point and click capability allows rich customisation options, without scripting expertise.

AdminStudio Professional and Enterprise editions will now also include Wise Script Editor, and can be leveraged as an alternative to PowerShell.

Webinar Registration

Global footwear and accessories brand, Dr. Martens adopts VXL Software’s Fusion UEM, Unified Endpoint Management, solution for its remote workforce

Dr. Martens, famous for its ‘AirWair’ boots and shoes since April 1960, relies on remote mobile hardware and software technology to empower its many hundreds of employees across its dedicated retail stores around the world.

Challenged by the need to provide remote control of its end-point devices, Dr. Martens turned to VXL Software. A leading provider of device management software, with its Fusion UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) solution, VXL Software successfully developed a full remote control solution optimized to manage the mobility needs of Dr. Martens workforce.

“Dr. Martens is a perfect example of how Fusion UEM supports businesses’ critical operations,” said Frank Noon, VP Worldwide Sales, VXL Software. “With Fusion UEM, unlike competitor solutions, we were able to provide a complete mobile device management with full remote control that was not only essential to the task at hand but provided the necessary operational efficiencies that Dr. Martens requires for its highly successful worldwide operation.”

Using ruggedized CipherLab mobile data scanners, featuring Microsoft Warehouse 365, to monitor and manage stock inventory between the retail and warehouse locations, Dr. Martens needed to find a way to support full remote control of these devices rather than just remote view functionality.

With that in mind, VXL Software took-up the challenge and worked with CipherLab to find an answer. To date, its Fusion UEM is currently the only endpoint management solution to deliver full remote control of the CipherLab mobile scanning devices and in turn allow Dr. Martens IT team to quickly support employees and keep device downtime to a minimum. Furthermore, Fusion UEM was also employed to lockdown the devices to avoid accidental operator miss-use and ensure a reliable and productive user experience.

Also instrumental in the successful adoption of Fusion UEM by Dr. Martens was VXL Software’s reseller partner Ganedata. Together both VXL Software and Ganedata worked closely with Dr. Martin’s IT department to ensure the seamless installation of Fusion UEM including the enrolment on the CipherLab mobile scanners, creation of regional group profiles and hosting in the Cloud.

“Working with VXL Software improved our productivity and efficiency,” said Rakesh Sandhu, Retail IT Delivery & Support Manager at Dr. Martens. “Our IT department used to receive many support calls, which were lengthy and frustrating to team members on both sides of the phone. Thanks to VXL Software’s Fusion UEM full remote control, we are able to solve device issues anywhere, in much less time, which will save hundreds of hours per year and allow our remote teams to provide the best possible support to our instore employees. Finding the right partners to both improve efficiency and provide was crucial to our business” he added.

What sets Fusion UEM apart is the fact that it’s a true unified endpoint management solution with the ability to manage both mobile (smartphones, tablets, PDAs, scanners) and desktop PCs and laptops. Devices running Android, Windows 7 and 10 Professional, Windows Embedded 7, 8 and 10 IoT, Windows POS, iOS and MacOS operating systems can be all be managed from a dashboard console. Extremely easy to install and use, Fusion UEM is also competitively priced against comparable products and features a perpetual license solution with no monthly subscription.


About VXL Software
VXL Software is a global leader in the creation of software for unified endpoint management, digital signage and PC desktop repurposing. VXL Software’s commitment to quality and competitiveness enables the company to provide software solutions which don’t just reset the benchmark within that product category, they also deliver unprecedented value for money.

VXL’s corporate HQ, and software development team, are in Mumbai, India, with the Americas group headquarters based in Houston, Texas, and the European HQ in Manchester, UK. Dedicated sales and support offices are based in key strategic markets – including Germany, France, UAE and Singapore.
