Software Spend Optimizer

In today’s BI focused enterprise, hard data is the fuel that drives impactful decision making; there is no room for guesswork. So now, more than ever, IT professionals are expected to know exactly how many licenses of each product in the company’s software portfolio are being used at any time. AppWave gives you that insight with “AppsLive,” a series of out of the box, and customizable reports that show you how to free-up software budget to spend on new IT initiatives. AppsLive shows you exactly what software is being used, when it’s used, and what software isn't being fully leveraged so you can easily identify where to cut costs. 11 reports are available on demand, including app usage by hour, by user, and more – to help you reduce spending by up to 20 percent while gaining valuable insight into how your workgroup, department, or enterprise is using software.

The Reinvention of Provisioning

One of the biggest and most costly headaches for IT is the mass deployment of a new OS along with all the application upgrades and PC rebuilds required. If you can’t quickly and reliably deliver the latest tools and desktop experience to your workforce, business users disengage, IT professionals look for new career growth opportunities, and even customers get a taste of the legacy systems that they might be relying on. AppWave reinvents "provisioning. Software is delivered through an open, advanced platform directly to your workforce - the way it should be. If a new version of software is released, it can be made quickly and easily available to all authorized users with no installs and no downtime. See more details on ways AppWave can speed up OS migrations.

Always Available Anywhere

Many users need to access their applications from machines other than their primary desktop. With AppWave a user can login to your network via VPN to securely and instantly run their applications from PCs anywhere in the world. And unlike virtualization and terminal based technologies, AppWave uses robust streaming technology to run Windows applications locally at full speed - for "no compromises" performance. (AppWave respects and doesn’t alter third party licensing restrictions)

Windows Best Friend

Remember how fast Windows was before you installed all those applications? As the number of application installations rises , the performance and stability of Windows continually falls. Until now. Unlike virtualization, AppWave completely eliminates software installations by isolating software from the operating system, similar to the way apps run on mobile devices. And unlike typical virtualization environments, AppWave gives users automatic “smart integration” so applications behave and interact with one another normally, but without the performance and stability penalties associated with installed software. With AppWave, your users keep that "new PC" performance regardless of the number of applications they run.

To upload and use a software application via AppWave, you must first have obtained the application and all applicable licenses from the application software vendor.
 

"AppWave saves time; I’ve gained 2-3 hours per week by not having to install software and updates on machines. Because I don't have to update individual desktops or manage licenses, I can focus on other strategic projects. Downloading and installing applications was a big hassle before. That hassle is removed with AppWave."
