I found the ease of deployment, scalability, and security to be to our benefit when supplying virtual applications to our clients.You can connect to any printer, and from anywhere you can print documents using a compressed channel. It is easy and the bandwidth is very low.This is a very stable solution which you can feel confident using.Stable product with straightforward setup.XenApp is a fast, secure and reliable solution for remote connections that is completely different than and superior to older Windows solutions.The most valuable feature is the automatic software upgrades because they take place on only three or four servers, rather than on 50 or 60 machines.The shadow feature is extraordinary and helps a lot when supporting remote users.The scalability is fine. We have about 400 users, who are supported by six staff members. We use the product company-wide throughout 40 different locations, and we currently do not have plans to increase the scale of use.

There are a lot of shortfalls with supporting printing over XenApp.Citrix has to support all of the hypervisors including KVM and OpenStack KVM.The product should expand its capabilities for integrating with other environments.For us, pricing is the most important feature to improve.Pricing can be lower and roaming profiles need to be fixed to work consistently.We would like to be able to provide VDI, a full desktop, to each of our users.Direct connection of USB devices on the terminals to be used by streamed applications is very important for printing and the usage of token authentication, but the current version does not support this one hundred percent.The monitoring and management is in need of improvement.

Pricing and Cost Advice
While LogMeIn Rescue is a great product and a leader in the industry, it's way pricey. Price is the most negative thing about LogMeIn Rescue.Right now, I'm using ScreenConnect, which is about $45 per technician. Unless I buy LogMeIn with a large license and commit for the long-term and prepay, I will have to pay almost $120 per user a month. It's almost three times the price over the normal price for ScreenConnect, which is very similar in regards to all of the features that LogMeIn Rescue can do.
