Recently with dwindling resources have had to wear more and more “hats” in my day-to-day activities. One of which was technical project management. To that end recently sat the PRINCE2 foundation exam (squeaked it, phew!). One thing did like with the methodologies used around the PRINCE2 framework was its common sense approach. Wasn’t just a case of “paperwork for paperworks” sake.
With that in end wanted to take a look at creating a new environment in the lab (located in my Azure lab environment) and review the approach taken with the Citrix Project Accelerator(URL: https://project.citrix.com/projects).
The Project accelerator is a tool that is mentioned early on in the Citrix Virtual Desktop Handbook (pg3) which is described as “an interactive online tool creating customized sizing and design recommendations based on the methodology, best practices and expert advice identified within this handbook”
To that end thought it would be fun to set up my dummy organization (Pidgey Inc. in this instance (Pokemon Go reference :)) and review the data coming out of the questionnaire.
For this piece will cover the Assess stage and follow up with the Design section next. citrix-project-accelerator-assessment-stage
