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.
Join the 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?
With good sequencing tools and a few best practices, we’ll show you how you can enjoy powerful delivery in a once problematic desktop management activity.
