Citrix aims to ease delivery of applications to desktops (Project Tarpon)


Thin client computing supplier Citrix has unveiled two new developments designed to make it easier for organisations to deliver applications to users.

Citrix released details of Project Tarpon and Edgesight products at its iForum user conference in Edinburgh earlier this month.

The company announced that users could try out a limited beta of its Tarpon product. Tarpon aims to help provide “software as a service” to desktops by reducing the time it takes to deliver applications and cutting the number of software licences needed to support staff.

Tarpon allows a company to profile which applications are needed across the organisation, and then publicise them on the company network so that end-users can select them manually.

The required applications can then be streamed to groups of desktops on request, instead of all end-users in the organisation receiving large numbers of applications, many of which subsequently sit unused on their machines.

Citrix chief executive Mark Templeton told iForum that the use of the web was driving enterprise IT and that companies had to change their mindset to del­iver technology across the enterprise.
