The necessity of using a wide
range of applications and perhaps operating systems by the
majority of companies makes the IT management complicated
and expensive. Specifically, the procedures of deploying applications,
upgrading applications to newer versions, and rolling out
regular updates (patches & fixes) have been proved time
consuming and extremely costly for any company.
By using Application Virtualization technologies, such
as Citrix XenApp, Precicom can help you transform your application
infrastructure into one centrally managed repository, from
where you can distribute them over the Internet or via your
company’s network to the terminals of the end users.
Application Virtualization help you to increase effectiveness
and reduce costs, by centralizing management and distribution
of applications and increasing in parallel the flexibility
of the users. By using this technology, users can connect
from any available terminal and access their applications.
This helps them work productively from anywhere.
There of course some issues which must be taken into account
when a company examines the possibility of centralizing
its applications using Application Virtualization:
• Should all applications be centralized and become available
to all users or some of them?
• Which end users should or should not use the new environment?
• How the decision for a particular integration should affect
the return on investment?
Those and many more important questions must be posed and
answered. It is true that Application Virtualization will
optimize the application service and management but is not
as simple as pressing a switch. It requires a strategic
approach by a team of solution advisors, who have implemented
similar projects to similar organizations, in order to develop
an integration plan, which will explain how a particular
organization will obtain the maximum possible gain by using
Application Virtualization. And this is what Precicom is
