Liquidware Aids DevOps with New FlexApp Package Automation Feature

Tue, 2021-09-07 20:55

New Feature Also Ideal for Large Enterprises with Multiple Applications

Chicago, IL. – 7 September, 2021 - Liquidware, the leader in digital workspace management, today announced its award winning FlexApp™ application layering solution now includes package automation, an innovative feature that provides enterprise organizations the ability to significantly reduce application packaging and deployment times. FlexApp Package Automation also provides great integration for DevOps by enabling an organization to deliver applications at high velocity.

Continuing on from the recent FlexApp One feature announcement, this further innovation from Liquidware provides the following benefits:

  • Bulk packaging of .EXE, MSI, MSIX etc.
  • Leverages multiple packaging consoles working independently to greatly accelerate packaging
  • Package output is turnkey and ready to distribute via the ProfileUnity console
  • Ideal for integration with DevOps
  • Aids application managers’ workflows by working with major application vendors’ silent install switches

"We are witnessing more and more of our enterprise customers implementing FlexApp layering as their de-facto way to deploy applications," commented Jason E. Smith, VP of product marketing and alliances, Liquidware. "The new package automation feature brings further efficiencies for customers that have dozens, if not thousands, of applications to provision." Automation is one of the top priorities for CIOs according to many surveys conducted recently. Along with automation being a key driver to digital transformation, Gartner recently stated that hyperautomation is now inevitable and irreversible as it is a top strategic priority; everything that can, and should, be automated will be automated.

Liquidware Wows End User Computing Market, Delivering Self-Contained Application Layers with FlexApp One

Wed, 2021-08-25 20:07

FlexApp One apps support Microsoft Endpoint Manager and can even run offline

Chicago, IL. - August 26, 2021 - Liquidware, the leader in digital workspace management, today announced its award winning FlexApp™ application layering solution now includes FlexApp One, an innovative feature that enables virtually any Windows application to be self-contained in a single file and easily distributed to any Windows workspace, plus can also run offline on laptops and PCs.

The new self-contained format of FlexApp One enables the industry’s most flexible application delivery to be managed by mainstream application deployment solutions such as Microsoft Endpoint Manager – all while keeping base images clean and avoiding the usual degradation of Windows performance over time. The containerized nature of FlexApp One apps also enable them to be shared via cloud-based platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint, Amazon WorkDocs, OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box.net.

FlexApp One supports offline use cases such as laptops or disconnected PCs, a longstanding community request of application layering products, especially in the wake of increased work from anywhere users. Continuing its innovative approach, FlexApp One does not require a heavy agent or player to be pre-installed to run layered packages, only a self-installing service is needed that runs silently in the background. One base requirement for offline use is that the target PCs and laptops should be well managed, unencumbered from practices of users constantly installing and uninstalling apps traditionally, which can naturally degrade Windows performance over time.

The new FlexApp One technology also works well with Microsoft Azure Active Directory and supports the rapid deployment of apps to emerging new workspace platforms such as Microsoft AVD, Windows 365 Cloud PC, Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0, and Nutanix Frame. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and VMware Horizon workspaces are also fully supported.

"Liquidware has over a decade of delivering innovation in digital workspace management and we’re pleased to announce self-contained application attachments with our new FlexApp One feature," commented Jason E. Smith, VP of product marketing and alliances, Liquidware. "The integration with Microsoft Endpoint Manager and new offline capability supports the increased demand to support work from anywhere users and opens up numerous new markets for Liquidware."

Earlier in the year, Liquidware co-sponsored some research by The Enterprise Strategy Group, entitled Digital Workspace Strategies In An Increasingly Remote World. The research underscores the reasons for Liquidware’s impressive growth. Over 80% of respondents are using, or planning to use, public cloud infrastructure to support their hosted-desktop environments. The average employee uses 16 different business applications daily to perform their role. 39% cited monitoring and capturing insights and analytics as their biggest priority for delivering, applications, data and devices for the Work From Home climate. And 32% stated providing access to a personalized user experience optimized for productivity as a priority for delivering apps, data and desktops. Liquidware ProfileUnity handles the personalized user experience, FlexApp delivers applications “just-in-time” and Stratusphere UX provides the digital experience monitoring, solutions that dovetail perfectly into the research’s findings.

The second half of 2021 will see Liquidware introduce a new SaaS-based help desk remediation product that will enable the management and monitoring of any Windows OS desktop, anywhere in the world, simply by launching an agent.
