Windows Virtual Desktop

Everything we have done with Azure Windows Virtual Desktop is well suited for our company's environment. We use it on a wide range of products and applications. As I said in the previous answers, Azure Windows Virtual Desktop is used for Windows 10 builds, Office 365, and has multiple functions our company uses. It is a great product.

VMware ThinApp

VMware ThinApp is ideal for a business that is still using PCs over Thin Clients because often times when using web-based applications there are some that simply will not run in Internet Explorer 11. ThinApped packages are also much easier to deploy as the packages that I make, all you need to do is simply copy the folder into Program Files.

Alternatives Considered

Windows Virtual Desktop

Azure Lab Services is excellent for small scale classes but once you reach a particular density or need to serve entire school or district level resources you need to move into WVD.

VMware ThinApp

The only application that I have ever used that does exactly what VMware ThinApp does is Cameyo, and VMware is light years ahead of them in terms of usability. VMWare is the industry standard for application virtualization, and they do this by making a powerful product that is remarkably simple to use and top it off with A1 customer support.
