Getting a Clear Picture of Your Apps: Desktop Delivery Methodology Part II
Last time, we introduced our Desktop Delivery Methodology, which starts with our Assessment Phase (click here for the previous article). As we gain a full understanding of your desktop users, including their app, network, disk and memory usage, it often becomes necessary to dig deeply into individual applications. It's critical to understand which of your apps are well-suited to a desktop strategy, whether it's OS compatibility (Windows XP to Windows 7, for instance), platform compatibility (32-bit versus 64-bit) or delivery (desktop versus RDS).
For many common applications, this information is readily available. And vendors are often very helpful to understand what the options are. However, in the case of custom, obsolete (but critical) or unusual applications, it's important to understand the options.
The next step in our Desktop Methodology centers on assessing these apps to determine the best way to deliver them in a virtual environment. We use several tools to test and assess your apps for things like Windows 7, 64-bit and RDS compatibility. From this information, we can also determine what steps are needed to make applications compatible. For internally developed apps, your development teams will have clear analysis of what issues need to be addressed. For purchase or obsolete applications, the information will help you make an informed decision on addressing your needs.
In our next Enterprise Snapshot, we'll look the design and architectural phase of Alliance's methodology.
