I2: About VMware User Environment Manager

VMware User Environment Manager offers personalization and dynamic policy configuration across any virtual, physical, and cloud-based Windows desktop environment. It simplifies end-user profile management by providing organizations with a single, lightweight, and scalable solution that leverages existing infrastructure. It accelerates time-to-desktop and time-to-application by replacing bloated roaming profiles and unmaintainable, complex login scripts. It maps environmental settings, such as networks and printers, and dynamically applies end-user security policies and personalization.

I3: About Installation

Installing and configuring User Environment Manager with Horizon Cloud is similar to using User Environment Manager with traditional virtual desktops and applications.
