Virtualise Business-critical Applications for a Total Desktop Solution
Do you have a critical business application that relies on older operating systems such as Windows 2000 or an older PC that your IT department is too afraid to touch? Do you want to move to Windows 7 or 8 but can’t because legacy applications are tied to an old operating system? Are you eager to access your critical or legacy apps across a range of devices or environments?
Application virtualisation helps by separating software from both the OS and the hardware to allow apps to operate and move around without interfering with other OS or programs. Virtualising
business-critical apps, such as payroll, HR, warehousing and shipping, also allows:
- Better management and security, as applications are centrally managed and no longer require individual installation
- Cost savings, as you can drive down infrastructure and software spend because you no longer have to migrate or rewrite apps
- Faster application deployment and time to market through self-provisioning and reduced testing across devices
- Ability to run legacy apps on stable hardware in modern operating environments, which leads to higher availability and reduces risk of downtime and critical business failure
Some of the latest offerings in this space enable virtualised applications to interact with non-virtualised ones and let IT staff manage applications through a browser. Other recent products allow users to install their own apps instead of requiring IT to issue admin rights.
