    Citrix Virtual Apps is well suited for environments that require remote access with 25 or more users. It is not appropriate for small sites with 10 or fewer users due to the cost of ownership. Citrix Virtual Apps pricing plus Windows RDS licensing as well is required. Smaller organizations may not find the cost-benefit due to overall costs and/or the cost of managing the environment.

    There is no direct replacement for the on-prem Ivanti [Unified Endpoint Manager (formerly LANDESK Management Suite)] solution. Ivanti has a companion product called Neurons, but that is in additional cost, and requires configuration with your on-prem [Unified Endpoint Manager] instance to perform basic functions. If cloud-based is a requirement for your organization, this is likely a dealbreaker. You can implement [Unified Endpoint Manager] in a cloud instance such as AWS, but the support for this appears limited. If on-prem is not an issue for you, this is a great tool for device management. It has robust features, impressive inventory, massive customization options, and excellent vendor support. If Patch Management is a problem in your company right now, this is the first product I would evaluate.

    Pros

    Citrix

    • Excellent for remote satellite users with low bandwidth and high latency connection.
    • Keeps data and applications secure in the data center as users are only getting "screenshots" of the application and mouse/keyboard inputs.
    • Platform agnostic allowing users to access from Apple OSX, iOS, Android devices, Windows, and Linux.
    • Allows increase user density when applications are installed on centralized servers as opposed to on user desktops and laptops.

    • Patch(Security) is done really well. You can use roll out projects or built-in automation as well as the use of groups and scopes to design pilot and other use cases.
    • It takes a solid inventory of what you have of your endpoints and can do an agentless scan as well if you need to collect data that way as well.
    • Provisioning is rather simple and even allows you to use other products' software for the image or the built-in if you wish to do so.
    • Software distribution works well and has a lot flexibility built into the module.

    Cons

    Citrix

    • Although I recommend Xenapp in all serious VDI/remote application situations, it is expensive and will add a lot of money to any projects budget. Some places will have a hard time justifying using it vs. the built in (free) Microsoft product and this makes the cost an area they could improve on.
    • Previous versions of Xenapp were more admin friendly than the current iteration. One example would be the ability to assign values to each server in your farm such that if you had a server that you wanted less users on it was an easy task. Xenapp now divides the users evenly with little way of doing granular load balancing.
    • Another crucial missing feature of Xenapp is the ability to move users from one server to another without making them log back in. For example, if you have a server that you know is having an issue it would be helpful if we could move users off onto a healthy server without making them logoff/kicking them off.

    • Setup - Boy it is a pain to configure everything correctly. Be aware that you'll probably be giving an AD service account some God rights to get everything working....and security just loves that....
    • Cost - Boy you have to pay for everything. I suppose it lets you buy into just what you want but having repeated items go through procurement is a pain if your procurement branch is a pain.

        We are happy with the product but the support and development process is far superior to any other company we have worked with. Having a good support structure is very important in today's marketplace of products that do so many things and have so many robust options and capabilities. We are very satisfied with our contract, pricing, support and product execution.

        Items are logically laid out and most are easy to find. The more advanced stuff can be trickier, but it is still not hard to find. There are a lot of options though, so remembering where some settings are, especially if you do not alter them often, can take a minute, but you will get to them fairly qiickly.

        TRM\TAM support has been generally very good. Getting reported bug fixes, design changes, UX problems resolved has been a pain. It is often difficult to get problems escalated beyond the TRM\TAM level. Support is fantastic when you can get it, getting it can often require more work than it should, and that is probably our biggest issue.

        Issues with overlapping settings caused troubleshooting to be a problem during the early stages of deployment.

        Alternatives Considered

        Citrix

        We tried Microsoft's RemoteApp before settling on Citirx's XenApp. RemoteApp is not scalable for large implementations, management can not be guaranteed, and multiple server management is not available. RemoteApp is best suited for smaller environments that do not require complex publishing. Citrix XenApp provides customers with improved maintenance and manageability, improved end-user experience for application delivery, and increased performance for users.

        It's been many years since I did a full evaluation of other products but at the time we purchased it, the main competitors were Microsoft's SMS and Alteris. SMS just looked horribly ugly and complicated (which fit in very well with Microsoft's other server tools) and Alteris looked okay but had a piecemeal approach where even a basic deployment meant purchasing a half dozen or more components. LANDesk had one bundle for all the tools we were looking for and had a great interface for presenting the data.

        Return on Investment

        Citrix

        • Citrix Virtual Apps reduce your cost significantly. Operating on the cloud helps you cut costs on not only network infrastructure but also on the human resources required to maintain it.
        • I can see no negative impact however in case the Citrix Virtual Apps are facing any network issues or downtime then it becomes a bit of an issue as you are dependent on the same for your network connectivity and applications access. However, you can raise a ticket and their support is great and helps you fix the issues ASAP.

        • In a college environment, the remote control access is very helpful in resolving issues w/o running around campus.
        • Very nice to push software to multiple devices at once.
        • Software portal is useful in allowing users to get what they need without the need for a tech.
