Executive Summary

To increase efficiency and lower costs associated with the application management life cycle, Microsoft Information Technology (Microsoft IT) uses Microsoft Application Virtualization version 4.5 and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2 to deliver virtual applications to network clients. App-V is part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP), and deploys and manages virtual applications on client computers. Virtual applications do not install application files or make changes to the local registry. Once Microsoft IT deploys a virtual application, it runs in an isolated environment that prevents application conflicts and significantly reduces costs associated with application-compatibility testing and troubleshooting.
