Application Virtualization: Powerful Delivery or Problematic Distraction?
Virtualizing applications is on track to become the standard for automating desktop management. With virtualized apps, new software requests can become self-service installations, and uninstalling software only requires deleting a few files. Applications no longer have to impact (or corrupt) the configuration of the machines they’re installed to. So why aren’t more people using app virtualization?
Platforms such as Microsoft App-V, Citrix XenApp, VMware ThinApp, and Symantec SWV have traditionally required a time-consuming repackaging process called “sequencing.” However, new automation solutions can now streamline – and greatly automate – this otherwise costly activity.
View this on-demand webcast where our experts will explain the role of sequencing automation in app virtualization. Challenges include:
- Which of my applications are best suited to a hosted, virtual or cloud deployment?
- What tools are required to test, remediate and convert my applications for the new target system(s)?
- Which challenges could cause pain for me?
