UEM (User Environment Management)

User Environment Management has been called many things over the years, like Profile Management, User Environment Virtualization, Workspace Management, and Workspace Virtualization. While the name may change, the purpose is the same: to compartmentalize the user's environment so that it can be managed separately from a single instance of Windows. Doing so means that the environment (Windows and application settings, files, privileges, shortcuts, wallpapers, etc...) can follow a user no matter where they log in. UEM platforms can be used in any Windows management strategy, but are especially helpful in environments that make use of desktop virtualization (VDI or RDSH) or Desktops-as-a-Service because they make it possible to deliver a single, familiar user interface across mulitple versions of Windows, including both client and server versions. All the desktop virtualization platform vendors (Citrix, Microsoft, VMware) have some sort of UEM product, but there are many third-party products available as well.
