When you talk about user profiles, you touch a very emotional aspect of people’s experience when interacting with Windows; it’s about individual workspaces, each one reflecting its owner’s personality. As an IT professional, you had better not try to reduce workspace flexibility, or your users will make your working life harder every day. Once upon a time, when you only needed to deal with one desktop and one profile per user, things were relatively simple. But now, with remote desktops and applications delivered through ubiquitous terminal servers and the advent of virtual desktop infrastructures, we are facing a very different situation. Using a spectrum of applications from multiple desktops, with each desktop optimized for dedicated tasks, seems to be the new user paradigm both in enterprise and in home environments. If you are being challenged to support such a scenario, than you need to learn some tactical strategies and best practices on how to deal with multiple profiles per user. From dividing and merging user settings on various Windows versions to central profile management and situation-specific adaptation, this session will introduce you to the secrets of what they call “user profile virtualization.”
