Executive Summary

With more than 53,000 students, the University of Central Florida (UCF) is the third-largest university in the United States. In its Computer Services and Telecommunications (CST) group, two personnel support more than 200 applications that are used in the UCF public computing labs. With an application packaging and deployment process that took up to eight weeks to complete, CST needed a faster, easier way to deliver and maintain applications. By switching to virtualization using Microsoft Application Virtualization, CST cut application testing from three weeks to one day and deployment time by 75 percent. It eliminated the need to close labs for reimaging, eased application upgrades, and stabilized desktop computers.
