Book Review: Citrix XenMobile Mobile Device Management
The author, Akash Phoenix, is a leading Messaging and Enterprise Mobility Solutions expert with a diverse global background in technologies such as Microsoft Exchange, Windows Servers, Cisco Ironport and ISE, Citrix® NetScaler® Gateway and App Controller.
XenMobile is the Mobile Device Management solution provided by Citrix: it is integrable with NetScaler, AppController, StoreFront, ShareFile and other Citrix products allowing corporates to manage mobile devices.
The book consists of 112 pages and 10 chapters: it starts with an introduction to Xen Mobile solution and provides you with a general overview of the core components. Next chapters explains you how to install and configure Xen Mobile integrating it with Netscaler and Active Directory.
Last chapters gives you details about mobile device enrollment, applications and policies management.
This book has especially been written to guide you through the basic installation: for this reason, the book is written for who want to familiarize themselves with MDM.
As I told before, the book is about 112 pages so do not expect it covers all! For example, troubleshooting chapter is only a page: in my opinion, author had to spend more on this section…
If you are a Citrix Professional not expect this book is not a technical reference guide.
Nevertheless, the book is well-written and rich in screenshots that explain you the basic installation and configuration: a good read if you want to start approaching XenMobile.
