If you have to update 1000 computers with new software, how do you do it? You can have 1000 users all bring in their devices. You can use the “fat-client” application delivery method, where you send out a small army of field technicians to walk from desk to desk with a master DVD, but it’s an individual-touch update process that’s time-consuming and never goes as quickly as you’d like.
Or you can use a virtual application delivery, where the software and operating system are hosted in the datacentre or the cloud, and staff use their devices as portals to access them. The single location means that patches, updates and installs only need to be done once – on the server – and when users access them, they’ll always have current, secure copies of the software.
"The Compugen people have been great and very supportive, and every time we had a problem, they were very responsive and were able to fix it quickly.”
Here’s how you can deliver the operating system and software applications to your end users:
With the new model of application delivery, you can provide your users with the software they need regardless of the hardware they have. Because none of the applications are stored on the devices themselves, they are ideal for Bring Your Own Computer and Bring Your Own Device programs. Because the datacentre does the heavy lifting, an organization can reduce the total cost of ownership, gain agility and align easily to business demands.
