Corporate computing has entered a period of unprecedented transformation. While PCs remain the predominant computing platform in most organizations today, a new generation of virtual desktop and application delivery methods present new efficiency and security opportunities to enterprise IT teams. In a desktop setting, the business value of virtualization is achieved by creating a standardized computing fabric that simplifies ongoing IT operations while providing a personalized computing experience that users will embrace. This document will describe how two virtualization technologies, Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) and AppSense User Virtualization Platform can be applied in concert to accomplish this objective.
AppSense User Virtualization really helps you to move towards App-V like no other product. See some of our competitors claim App-V support, but it’s so limited. This whitepaper details how AppSense and App-V work together hand in hand to move you from where you may be today with Windows XP and native application installations towards a layered desktop of Windows 7, App-V applications and AppSense UVP. No other solution can move your personalized settings transparently from native to App-V applications like AppSense can! You might be asking the question, why is moving to App-V for application deployment even worth it? Reputable analyst firm, Gartner even affirm that moving to App-V really drives down costs, further down below even a Well-Managed desktop. The data we have from our customers, successfully using Well Managed desktops indicates a further drop in operational costs also. The numbers tell the reasons why you should care, and how AppSense really delivers on helping you move from your old architecture to the new Flexible Workstyle that you want for tomorrow.
This whitepaper details all of this plus the technical aspects to really help you understand how together, App-V and AppSense UVP enables a lower cost managed desktop, that delivers improved management, better security and a transparent user experience. It’s too compelling to ignore.
