Winter Wonderland

Here in Fort Worth we are not too familiar with snow.  We usually get one or two days of ice per year and anything more than that is the end of the world.  This winter, however, has been somthing of an anomaly.  We had the first white Christmas in 83 years.  A couple of weeks ago, we had about 12 inches of snow.  My daughter and I made a snow girl in the front yard.  It was beautiful.

The problem is that we Texans don’t know how to handle snow or ice.  Everything shut down.  Businesses and houses lost their power, schools closed and the city looked likea  ghost town.  This kind of thing can be devastating for the economy.  In my business, managing client’s computer networks, we don’t have the luxury of taking a snow day.  We have clients around the country relying on us to keep their systems running and to provide help desk services no matter what the weather in Fort Worth is doing.

One of the tools that we rely on to work when we can’t get to the office is Citrix XenApp.  This software lets you run business applications from any computer with an internet connection as if you were sitting in the office.  In fact, if it’s properly configured, many user’s cannot tell that the program isn’t running on their local PC.  This software is amazing for when you’re on the road and you need to access your company’s database application.  Or perhaps your kid’s school called to say your child is sick – with this software you can be just as productive at home as at the office.
