AppSense Accelerates Adoption Of Application Virtualization With VMware ThinApp® 5.0 Integration

AppSense Environment Manager Simplifies Profile Management and Makes Adoption Transparent for ThinApp Delivered Applications

VMWORLD 2013 EUROPE: BARCELONA - October 15, 2013 - AppSense, the leading provider of enterprise workspace management solutions, today announced the integration of AppSense Environment Manager with VMware ThinApp® 5.0. The combination of the two technologies enables full personalization of applications delivered via ThinApp, allowing IT to deliver a more consistent, responsive, and personalized experience to users while streamlining profile management. Customers benefit from faster deployments of virtualized applications with high levels of user acceptance and lower desktop management costs.

Part of the AppSense DesktopNow suite, Environment Manager virtualizes personalized application settings from ThinApp applications and enables these settings to be shared seamlessly between physically installed native applications and applications delivered virtually. The AppSense Environment Manager enhances user acceptance in the migration to virtualized applications by ensuring that existing preferences, customizations and settings - including history, favorites, custom dictionary, fonts, window size and location - remain unchanged. Other benefits include faster logon times and customized control of a user's personalization. In the event of profile inconsistencies or corruption, the rollback feature allows the customer to restore an individual's application settings quickly with minimal downtime and troubleshooting.

"As IT organizations adopt application virtualization solutions like ThinApp to simplify application migration and delivery, our partnership with VMware allows IT to migrate user settings to virtualized applications seamlessly, increasing user acceptance and adoption," said Scott Arnold, CEO AppSense.

The integration of VMware ThinApp and AppSense Environment Manager comes as IT departments consider application virtualization as part of their Windows 7 migration plans. AppSense streamlines application delivery models enabling faster adoption, lower risk, and higher user acceptance in ThinApp deployments.

"VMware's ThinApp 5.0, brings the latest technology in application virtualization to the market - it can eliminate application conflicts, deliver reliable and flexible application access to all users, and reduce the need for additional server hardware or software investments," said Mason Uyeda, senior director, Technical Marketing, End-User Computing at VMware. "By offering this compatibility with AppSense, we continue to deliver the best virtualization experience with the fastest time to value for our customers."

The AppSense DesktopNow suite assists with the migration to desktop virtualization, session virtualization, and application virtualization - which now includes VMware ThinApp in addition to Microsoft App-V. Customers using AppSense Environment Manager 8.4 and above can already take advantage of the VMware ThinApp 5.0 compatibility.
