FlexApp Layering

This whitepaper explores the technique of application layering as provided through Liquidware FlexApp and outlines how it improves desktop management compared to other approaches. FlexApp attaches applications into a Windows environment just-in-time. Applications look and interact as if they are natively installed into the OS environment. Once an application has been packaged with FlexApp, it becomes a portable application layer and can be assigned by group, department, organizational unit or with more than 300 context-aware settings in ProfileUnity. Innovations like FlexApp One enable attached applications to go offline and be distributed by any means. Because FlexApp containers dynamically attach to Windows sessions, the technology dramatically lowers the time and expense of managing applications in base images. In fact, single image image-management is even possible with FlexApp.
