Remote working - the 'new normal'
Helping you to assess and manage applications for remote working
Practically every organization is facing unprecedented challenges in maintaining business operations. Now more than ever, remote working is critical to keeping the business going and to enable future growth. The new normal and the increased demands, require IT to quickly adapt, build, scale and manage applications for remote working.
Virtual workspaces offer the most flexible and secure way access to apps and data. Employees can work from anywhere at any time on the devices of their choosing using all of the applications they are familiar with. Despite these benefits, organizations often lack the infrastructure and resources to manage virtual workspace applications. The sheer number of applications that most organizations have to deal with across the many deployment platforms – legacy, desktop, SaaS – presents a very real challenge.
Discover, assess, package and manage any on-premises or cloud-based application wherever it’s hosted.
Use any virtualization platform to streamline management and delivery.
We help you understand applications in use
Tackling the “new normal” you need a holistic view of applications, not only to monitor productivity and make sure operations are running smoothly but to understand their importance to operations. IT needs visibility of the desktop estate, how end points and applications are being used. System performance visibility is critical to see whether there are any stability issues.
Gaining this intelligence is the first key step to delivering an effective and efficient remote working solution.
Discover apps in use
With the secure Apps2Digital Windows Endpoint Agent, within minutes you can begin the discovery process that will identify all the apps in use across your organization. The discovery agent runs in any Windows end-point device and reports on all apps being used from inhouse or off-the-shelf desktop apps, to those running a service from cloud providers.
Assess and prioritize
Apps2Digital reveals all applications, desktop, SaaS, Microapps and web-based services that your users rely upon. Each is assessed and analyzed to determine what resources it requires and inventoried with a classification as to the level of importance to business operations.
The demands of remote working in the “new normal” have shifted the emphasis of which applications to support. From supporting a subset of applications for key remote workers in the past, we now need to support a broader set of apps for a larger number and variety of workers. A one-size-fits-all management approach cannot not be flexible enough to support the application estate of most organizations.
Apps2Digital delivers a complete view of your estate and helps you to determine the specific requirements of each application to maintain them throughout their lifecycle.
Package and repeat
Apps2Digital enables packaging of applications using any virtualization technology. This flexibility enables IT to select the best virtualization platform for each app to support it efficiently and with stability. The formula capabilities of Apps2Digital not only enable automation of packaging but repeatability for evergreen computing. Using App-V, MSIX, native installation to on-premises / Citrix Cloud or Windows Virtual Desktop and physical Windows devices provides this flexibility.
Evergreen – Reusable packaging formula using the most suited virtualization platform for each app and extensive automated UAT enables controlled and scheduled application refresh for evergreen application cycle.
