Free registration required

Executive Summary

Purdue University is a public research university in West Lafayette, Indiana. Its IT staff, which manages 250 software applications used by 40,000 students, was challenged by application conflicts and the duplicative packaging processes required to run software in its desktop computer and Remote Desktop Services environments. By using Microsoft Application Virtualization, Purdue is able to reduce packaging time by 50 percent; avoids having to repackage applications for different environments - which means remotely accessed applications are available a week faster than was previously possible; and has deployed 80 percent more applications on its existing terminal server computers.
