Citrix Workspace

Due to the pandemic and everyone working from home, being able to connect to the office computer from one's home is incredibly crucial.The application works stable and I can recommend it to everyone. The only instance I would not recommend this product is if they are using Linux or MacOS as the program is not made for those operating systems and could cause a few issues.

Microsoft App-V

For large organizations that need software to update at the control of the IT department APP-V is a godsend to manage deployment based on AD group assignment, maintaining software versioning for specific services or upgrades, and areas where you need to make software available without having to install the entire package - the streaming portion of APP-v publishes a shortcut on the desktop, then streams the install on demand

Cons

Citrix Workspace

  • Speed- it requires pretty good internet connection, otherwise system gets slow.
  • Interrupt- a lot of times the device gets logged out automatically.
  • Limited setting options- inside the virtual environment, there are [few] options for customization.

Microsoft App-V

  • Complicated software installs of interacting software needs significant care
  • Updating software requires a pristine virtual machine to update a packager
  • No longer being updated so new software practices aren't correctly captured.

Microsoft App-V

Microsoft App-V 5.0
Based on 1 answer
APP-V is no longer a supported technology and is on the way out, only on legacy support at this time. The changes in security emphasis in windows, as well as the changes in software development have meant that APP-V is no longer able to correctly package software. It has been superseded by the MSIX format and distribution via the Microsoft Store for Business.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix Workspace

On the basis of user experience and productivity, CIitrix Workspace provides a single experience for employee to get work done quickly and efficiently and on the other hand applications like VMware users have to use multiple tool to access their file and apps.On the basis of performance Citrix Workspace delivers the optimum application specific path across available networks and on other hand VMware users see their productivity negatively impacted while waiting for files to load.

Microsoft App-V

APP-V is able to do the majority of software packages for internal organization use, but when you get to a program that is space and resource intensive, moving to EMCO MSI Package Builder will allow you to capture the entire install process as well as any complex configurations needed for file locations, save directories, or the registry
