Predictable Application Delivery for Physical, Virtual and Mobile Deployments
Flexera Software delivers market-leading Application Readiness solutions to help enterprises in the planning, packaging and delivery of physical, virtual, and mobile applications, ensuring faster service delivery and continuous and predictable deployment into increasingly complex computing environments. Companies rely on our solutions to reduce the time and cost of application virtualization, desktop and server upgrades, and adoption of mobile applications, to simplify management of the enterprise application lifecycle, and enable self-service delivery models.
Software packaging and deployment is more complex than ever. Consumerization of IT and bring your own device (BYOD) are just some of the trends that are creating new challenges. The boundaries between work and personal life are blurring, and users are demanding consistent self-service access to corporate services from wherever they are, on multiple device types, including desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets.
Traditional approaches for getting applications to users are no longer effective in the new user-centric computing model. IT needs to find a way to manage and deploy new enabling technologies without driving up operational costs or increasing administrative complexity.
In response, IT organizations are launching strategic initiatives to meet goals related to:
- Desktop transformation
- Windows desktop and server migrations
- Application virtualization
- Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)
- Mobile application management (MAM)
- Self-service software requests
With so many initiatives in place, preparing and deploying applications in a reliable, consistent manner is complex, whether deployment is part of an operating system migration, application virtualization project, mobility initiative or every day application requests. Doing so in a cost-effective way is at the heart of driving application usage and greater productivity.
Key Phases to Full Lifecycle Application Packaging and Application Readiness
Flexera Software’s Application Readiness solutions offer substantial value to your enterprise. You can enhance their value by incorporating them into end-to-end management of the enterprise application lifecyle that encompass application packaging, delivery through an enterprise app store and software licensing optimization. With tight integration across these areas, you can streamline and automate the effort involved in keeping applications in a state of readiness for deployment into increasiningly complex environments, making applications easily and immediately available to employees, and effectively managing software licenses to ensure continuous license compliance while optimizing software usage and minimizing spend.
Flexera Software products uniquely manage software usage strategically across the entire enterprise software lifecycle and have long been a de facto industry standard in application readiness and application packaging—core components of a strategic approach to Application Usage Management.
