Using the Horizon Application Management Bundle for Citrix Environments – New Videos Now Available

by Sachin Sharma, VMware End-User Computing Product Line Marketing Manager

Are you managing a Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop environment? Would you like to take it to the next level with a more modern application management approach, one that can help you deliver apps faster, provide reliable app management and reduce IT costs by up to 70%? Just a few months ago, we released the Horizon Application Management Bundle to help you with exactly that.

The Horizon Application Management Bundle was built specifically to help optimize Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environments. Customers can realize up to 70% reduction in storage and operational costs with one-to-many provisioning, painless packaging and stable installation. Removing slow MSI installs and replacing with the instant application delivery that is available in the Horizon Application Management Bundle can enhance Citrix environments. IT can increase its ability to deliver offerings without increasing staff, enabling real-time application delivery and services that drive the business, rather than spending time on upkeep of dated XenApp and XenDesktop architectures.

At this point, you may be wondering: what exactly is in the bundle? The bundle includes VMware App Volumes, User Environment Manager, Identity Manager Standard Edition, ThinApp and vRealize Operations for Published Applications. To help get you started with the products in the bundle, we asked some of our architects and engineers to speak in a series of short videos that highlight each component of the bundle. The videos include an overview of:

The videos speak to how customers use the bundle and considerations you may want to take when thinking about optimizing application delivery, user management and monitoring in your Citrix environment.

In addition to the short videos mentioned above, we also have some great technical deep-dive videos as part of a Workspace Environment Management boot camp series. Workspace Environment Management is an end-to-end approach to application and end-user management across physical, virtual and cloud-hosted desktop environments. This approach enables IT to effectively isolate and deliver applications in real-time, monitor performance and map personas and policies. The videos include deeper technical overviews of:

And it doesn’t stop there! We have consolidated the presentations in the boot camp videos into an eBook that can be downloaded for free. We hope you enjoy these videos and eBook!
