"We know there's a lot of uncertainty around managing mobile apps because IT fears losing central control," said Polte. "Our customers are demanding that the same best practices and processes they use for managing other enterprise software should also apply to mobile apps. AdminStudio 2013 is the only solution that provides centralized and automated application usage management for all apps, including mobile."
AdminStudio 2013 further extends its industry-leading virtualization support, enabling organizations to minimize the time and cost associated with migrating their software estate to virtualized environments. New functionality includes:
•Enhanced Microsoft App-V 5.0 Support: AdminStudio Suite 2013 offers substantially enhanced support within the AdminStudio Virtualization Pack for Microsoft App-V, including App-V 5.0. Enterprises can now automatically test suitability of applications for conversion and deployment as App-V 5.0 virtual applications, and run tests to identify conflicts with other applications. The system converts MSI and .EXE to the Microsoft App-V 5.0 format and uses the new App-V Conversion Wizard or Platform AdminStudio APIs to accelerate App-V 4.5 and 4.6 to App-V 5.0 conversion. It also allows direct editing of App-V 5.0 packages, eliminating the need to reconvert from an MSI in order to modify the package. Finally, AdminStudio 2013 lets enterprises easily support new App-V 5.0 capabilities, such as defining Virtual Connection Groups in AdminStudio and publishing directly to Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.
•Greater Efficiency for Client Virtualization: AdminStudio 2013 Virtualization Pack now supports Symantec Workspace Virtualization, giving IT the information it needs to ensure the apps in the estate are suitable candidates to be converted. The system will automatically test conversion suitability to Symantec Workspace Virtualization package format, convert the Windows Installer package or packages, as well as import and manage existing Workspace packages.
Moreover, AdminStudio Virtual Desktop Assessment helps organizations identify the best Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) candidates. Now, AdminStudio Virtualization Pack includes a limited edition of Virtual Desktop Assessment to monitor key system behaviors of computers, users and applications. This allows enterprises to identify which users are good candidates to move to VDI and to collect detailed data that assists with sizing and planning of VDI environments. AdminStudio 2013's Test Center also facilitates application virtualization decision-making with the ability to view critical application usage test results from AdminStudio Virtual Desktop Assessment alongside AdminStudio application virtualization compatibility test results.
