Citrix: Get to Windows Faster with Citrix Workspace
Windows 7 will reach end-of-life in 2020 — just over two years from now. It’s possible to avoid the scramble many faced when they moved from XP and get ahead of the move. How? With Citrix Workspace.
Support BYOD devices – including mobile
Even if you do not have a sanctioned bring-your-own device (BYOD) program, your workers are likely using personal devices to work—especially after hours or while remote. Due to the free upgrade in its first year, many of those employees already use Windows 10 on their personal devices. Make it easy for them, and on you, and deliver the apps they need to be productive. With Citrix Workspace, you can deliver virtual apps to personal devices and get unified endpoint management. That means you can manage your employees Windows 10 devices—desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets—through a single pane of glass, simplifying management of BYO and corporate-owned devices.
Get a handle on app compatibility
One of the biggest obstacles in any OS migration is ensuring that current applications are compatible. While this is not a big issue with out-of-the-box apps like Office, custom line-of-business apps can be very pricey to recode to achieve compatibility. Citrix Workspace has two solutions that can help: App Layering and AppDNA.
Citrix App Layering enables you to separate OS, apps and users and manage each as a unique “layer” in your image. By separating the apps from the desktop, you can package and deliver apps—even those with deep OS dependencies, system services and early-start drivers—independent from the operating system, giving you 99% application compatibility.
