Steve Schmidt, VP Product Management, Acresso Software provided some information about their recent announcement for AdminStudio Virtualization Pack and App-V.
AdminStudio, with expertise in application readiness, will help Microsoft App-V customers simplify the rollout by allowing them to leverage the work that they have already done. AdminStudio can confirm which applications are appropriate for virtualization and enables rapid deployment to the new App-V SFT virtual format.
The key value that AdminStudio offers is to eliminate tedious and time consuming steps in planning for, creating, and managing virtualized applications (as well as MSI applications). When dealing with thousands of applications at one time, IT teams are looking for a way to save time and money to keep on track with the reality of tightened budgets in today’s economy. In recent third-party studies, AdminStudio demonstrated up to 60% time savings in preparing applications for virtualization, compared to natively provided tools by virtualization technology vendors. AdminStudio also provides a management infrastructure for cataloging, tracking and reporting on all the applications and the process around their preparation. In addition, all of this functionality is provided via the familiar interface used by thousands of customers today to create MSI packages, further increasing their efficiency and the reliability of the output.
A beta version of the new AdminStudio Virtualization Pack will support App-V at the end of 2008, and general release of the updated Virtualization Pack is expected in early 2009.
