IT Projects: On-demand Application Delivery

Definition

Enabling on-demand application delivery involves streamlining or automating the application delivery process to be more responsive to end-user productivity needs and less reliant on IT intervention, without compromising security or manageability.

Challenges

  • Increasing number of mobile and remote users makes traditional application delivery less reliable
  • Increasing mobility of users between computers complicates application delivery and license management
  • The fluidity of virtual desktops and virtual machines requires an equally flexible delivery technology
Provision and protect endpoint environments instantly using streaming, virtualization, and desktop broker technologies to reduce costs and increase productivity.
  • Avoid downloads and installations and improve application delivery and streaming.
  • Support local execution while maintaining central control
  • Allow users to obtain authorized applications, on-demand, without requiring IT intervention
  • Enable delta-only application upgrades or back-grades to reduce network bandwidth usage
