XenApp (Citrix Virtual Apps) Valuable Features

DimitarAlexov
CDO at SGROUP
I'm not the end-user of the application. My position is very high in the organization. I know that the users who are using this product like it, but I don't know what exactly they like or what might make it separate from similar solutions. From my point of view, the reason they like it is this flexibility that they have. They can connect one application to another application or just to use the data. They have applications locally and use the data in the cloud in a very secure way. They have more flexibility using this solution. View full review »

XenApp is fast and secure and reliable for remote connections. It is a solution that is completely different than older Windows solutions like Remote Desktop, Server Gateway, and Runtime Brokers. These Windows solutions have never really produced satisfactory results for me. View full review »

It helps you to virtualize your application, so whenever the user needs the application, they have it in virtualized form. It is user-friendly and easy to use. It helps in many ways. The installation and maintenance are good. View full review »

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 administration, security, and flexibility are very good. View full review »

The most valuable feature is that users can work remotely from any location. The shadow feature is extraordinary and helps a lot when supporting remote users. The business support team uses this feature to connect to the user session when they are working and can provide instruction on performing complicated tasks. View full review »

Application streaming and shadow feature helped end-user online support and training. It also increased user productivity. Since this application has its own traffic encryption proprietary technique, it increased data connection security. View full review »
