Application virtualization transforms applications into centrally managed services that don’t conflict with other applications. IT professionals and end-users alike face challenges in today’s flexible work environment. End-users speak many languages, are geographically dispersed, use multiple devices and may not be connected to corporate networks at all times. IT must meet the needs of these users, and provide access to their business critical applications that are fast, flexible and reliable. Application virtualization can help with these challenges and enable businesses to be more flexible and responsive to these changing needs.
Two key technologies supporting these new flexible Workstyles are Application Virtualization (App-V) and RemoteApp.
