In the current climate, it’s likely that your business has already developed a strategy for remote and home working. Providing users with the right applications to collaborate and communicate with everybody effectively as well as business applications needed for them to do their jobs is critical.
This sudden shift has put many IT departments on the back foot scrambling to deliver applications in a scalable, efficient and secure manner whilst trying to retain control and dealing with application compatibility or device issues.
Supporting the Modern User as well as the Modern Workplace
As todays employees search for more creative and flexible ways to work, the pressure falls on IT departments to keep pace with the latest technology. Delivering a truly modern workplace that supports user productivity and efficiency, and meets the needs of the business is essential.
Businesses need to retain control, implement security centrally, update applications regularly and be able to deliver at scale. Users simply want a frictionless, consistent, quality experience, having the applications they need to do their job with the right settings and security levels baked in. Packaging applications in the right way is central to achieving this.
Another compelling use case for application packaging is the increasing pressure on organisations such as the NHS to deploy more and more new applications, replacing legacy technologies. In these instances, it’s vital for IT to be able to deploy the applications in a timely and efficient manner to a large number of users.
Why use an application packaging service?
An effective application packaging service creates easily deployable desktop applications which can be deployed automatically (silently) to users’ devices with all of the appropriate security policies, user settings and application parameters required. By packaging the application in this manner, the business retains the control they need and the user has a great experience.
Managing applications centrally supports scalability, provides efficiencies and makes the enrolment of new users, devices or applications simple, as well as making the whole application update process a piece of cake.
