Opinion: The Changing Landscape of Enterprise Application Management

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Feb 7, 2017 9:54:46 AM

I'm usually not one for posting blogs on [rorymon.com] in reaction to public announcements BUT I’ll make an exception for a couple that occurred in the first two weeks of this year. First, on the 2nd of January, Symantec put out a release to state that their Workspace Virtualization product is now End Of Life. Second is the announcement out of Citrix Summit that Citrix acquired Unidesk. These announcements warrant a post in my opinion because to me it highlights a major shift in the application virtualization and application delivery space.

Customer Quality, Culture, and Competency - Why I Joined Team FSLogix

Posted by David Young on Sep 2, 2015 7:43:08 PM

After spending 6 years at VMware as one of the initial Desktop Sales Engineers, it became clear that traditional application virtualization (AppV and ThinApp) were still not meeting the expectations of the users, admins, and the industry.  Many people were seeking the utopia of single image management, with layered or virtualized applications, however this was very difficult to achieve, due to the complications of app-virt and the inherent complications of app isolation from the OS, and isolating apps that were designed to work together.  VDI and application virtualization had promised to simplify the enterprise workspace, but the products coming to market seemed to be just as complicated as distributed physical desktops, but now with the added problem of some tools working in one environment, some working in another, and none working together.
