Our new RES2UWM conversion tool!

< Terug naar blog overzicht

Finally it’s live! Saturday, November 3rd we showed our ability to convert Ivanti Workspace Control (IWC, formally known as RES Workspace) configurations to Ivanti User Workspace Manager (UWM) .
This enables customers to convert their current configurations without having to reconfigure every single configuration item from scratch and offers a framework how to configure the logic in UWM.

The Why

As we saw the developments unfold, both RES and AppSense now being part of Ivanti, we foresaw that the best of both would be combined and would be incorporated in Ivanti User Workspace Manager (UWM). Ivanti released a blog on their plans for both WC (former RES) and UWM (former AppSense). In this blog they told us to keep calm and stay where we are . In the same blog you can read WC/RES will remain supported, but no new features will be introduced. UWM on the other hand receives a quarterly release cadence and features to keep up with the evolving technologies around us.
If your organization has no current initiatives like a desktop refresh or a new workplace initiative it makes a lot of sense to “keep calm and stay where we you are”. But if your organization is currently is in the middle of initiatives like transitioning from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or another desktop refresh, it might be worth your while to look into migrating, or even rebuilding to Ivanti UWM.

With the rate at which new features are introduced on every field of technology, we figured we could at least take some of the workload away by migrating your IWC configuration to an UWM configuration and optimize it for the modern workplace.

How can we help you?

If you are looking to migrate to Ivanti UWM, want to have a chat about the possibilities, need to rethink your User Workspace strategy or you just want to convert your current IWC configurations, we can assist you in various way’s.

How will we convert?

We completely read all the information from the RES/IWC config and based on this we will deliver an UWM configuration. All the access control, actions, applications, whitelisting and user setting items will be parsed and dropped in a fitting location within the UEM configuration. The UEM configuration naming conventions and structure will be (where possible) optimized to be recognizable and comparable to what you would are used to in IWC.

Below you can find a matrix on where the IWC settings by default are placed within UWM.

What does a conversion look like?

Below you can find 3 video’s showing the conversion of policies (configuration actions), whitelisting and user settings. They will first show you the configurations in IWC and afterwards demonstrate how they are configured in UWM.
