Workspace are continuously subject to change and innovation. As a result, application management remains challenging for many organizations. This raises the question: is your current application strategy future-proof? More specifically: how much time does application management take now (how many Golden Images are managed, how many apps need frequent repackaging)? What happens if the workspace is migrated to a different OS or (cloud) platform? And what about vendor lock-in, security and costs?
Application layering addresses a lot of these challenges. With FlexApp, Liquidware offers a flexible and easy solution for packaging and deploying applications. With FlexApp, applications are decoupled from the OS, allowing administrators to easily update and assign applications to users without changing any base images. The applications look and interact as if they were traditionally installed on the OS, without polluting the operating system. With FlexApp, applications can be packaged automatically, significantly fewer images are required, application delivery is simplified and security is increased. FlexApp is platform-independent and can deliver applications to all Windows workstations.
In this whitepaper, we provide an overview of how application management has evolved to this day, including the limitations with regards to modern management. We provide insight in how to adopt modern application management as part of your Windows Modern Management journey.
FlexApp attaches applications into a Windows environment on-demand.
Applications look and interact as if they are natively installed into the OS.
Apps can be packaged automatically, based on a PowerShell driven API.
Applications become portable application layers that can be assigned by group, department, or context-based.
Applications are delivered platform agnostic, as FlexApp supports all workspaces.
With App-V becoming end-of-life soon, many organizations are looking into alternatives. According to the "Application Compatibility Matrix" of ApplicationReadiness, FlexApp has the highest compatibility rate compared to MSIX and even App-V. Make sure to review application layering as a solution to enhance and future-proof your application management practice!
In the end, it is better to show than tell. We'd love to show you how FlexApp works or to think along about your application management strategy. Just leave your contact details and we will come back to you a.s.a.p.!
