Personal, consistent, secure and reliable workspaces, including applications, across all pc’s, laptops and tablets: virtual or physical, managed or unmanaged, hosted or on-premise, company owned or employee owned, at the office, while traveling or at home.
enhances the user experience and productivity by making the desktop more personalized and improving its performance. The CIO can reduce infrastructure and operations costs by reducing the amount of servers, storage and application images departments must use to provide users with personalized desktops on any location and device.

Scense has been known for years as an easy to use, efficient workspace management solution for desktop environments with Pc’s, laptops, terminal services and virtual desktops. Scense 8 addresses the latest IT challenges and use cases even better in the same elegant way we know from earlier versions. Users are empowered and management remains centralized.
“With Scense, you can keep your BYOC options open.” – Intel
Scense 8 supports unmanaged devices without the need for a complex to manage and expensive data center for hosted desktops or terminal server sessions. Earlier versions of Scense have resulted in already tens of thousands of end users using their own laptop or PC to use corporate applications and resources. As opposed to the way previous Scense versions made it possible to do ‘on premises’ BYOD, Scense 8 will be able to service BYOD remotely over the internet, including software distribution.
The Scense 8 location services and users context awareness will address the IT managers’ most urgent concerns related to fear of data loss or leakage, compliancy rules and, last but not least, dirty PC’s. At the same time, Scense Live Profiles will ensure a consistent user experience for the end user by transferring personal application settings between corporate, managed and personal devices.
“Scense has increased the scalability, actual use and flexibility of our VDI environment.” – University
Scense workspace management is the way to go to transform highly standardized virtual desktops into personalized, functional workspaces with all applications and policies in place including personal applications, settings and data.
Scense workspace management version 8 adds context awareness and location services to VDI environments. Administrators will, for instance, be able to allow or block access to corporate applications and data based on the user’s location. With the same ease, Dynamic Printer Management will allow for the support of a concept like follow-me-printing.
“In essence, Scense enables students and staff to get on doing what they do best―learning and teaching.” – University
Facilitating mobile users with access to corporate applications and data, while keeping IT regulations in place, has been a challenge for both administrators and end users for years. By delivering workspace management over the internet, end users are able to use corporate resources or add new applications as soon as internet is available. No more hassle with VPN connections or network cables to access your personal workspace. At the same time, IT is able to update machines of mobile end users and enforce IT policies in real time to mobile devices. A mobile user is no longer a risk to, but a friend of the IT department.
By rewriting the Scense backend to support WCF, we encourage our customers and partners to deliver a Scense workspace via the internet. An on-premise implementation of Scense is no longer obligatory allowing for multi-tenant Scense environments.
