Share Applications and Data With Remote Desktop
In the dynamic whirlwind of a growing organization, the art of delivering the latest and greatest applications to meet business needs can be a time consuming and expensive task. Tracking down remote or roaming users, updating branch offices, applying and verifying security patches, and interoperability issues with multiple client operating systems or hardware quickly inflate the cost of applications deployment, in both time and cash. Using remote desktop, much of this headache and expense can be avoided, while providing the best services and applications.
Remote desktop allows an organization running a server to share applications with client machines running other versions of Windows operating systems, or with Apple hosts running Windows Remote Desktop for Mac. Applications are installed and execute on a server, and are accessed through the Remote Desktop software on the client laptop or desktop. Apps look and feel as though they are installed on the client's machine, allowing the user to run them side-by-side with other programs that are installed on their PC. Window size/resize/minimize acts as usual, and if multiple apps are accessed, the same terminal services session is utilized, reducing bandwidth requirements.
Using remote desktop has some great advantages over installing software on individual client PC's. The most important is that only one instance of the software is installed on the server. This is in stark contrast to the traditional lengthy software deployment cycle to individual client PC's which starts with procurement of multiple To-do List Extension , regression testing for multiple OS platforms (both client and server), security patching and updating, rollout package creation, deployment cycles, outlier tracking and mitigation and finally competition of the enterprise wide deployment. With remote desktop, the software is procured for the single OS which is running on the server, deployed and tested, patched or updated, then made live for the entire enterprise with a click of a button. Once live, all users accessing their remote desktop software are instantly brought to the current corporate standard. No more lengthy tail of trouble tickets that extends for months as occasional users of the software realize that they have an outdated version. No more calls for stuck or failed installs. No more incompatibility with legacy data sets. All of these pitfalls can be tested, and once mitigated, the enterprise is updated seamlessly.
