Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Secure Global Desktop

Oracle Secure Global Desktop is used to support web applications, which my company builds, implements, and maintains for the air traffic control and aviation community. My company is contracted by the FAA.
  • Very secure.
  • Simple layout that is easily understood by different levels of experience.
  • My company works with Linux and Windows - Oracle Secure Global Desktop easily operates on both platforms.
  • Is not supported on Apple devices.
  • Support on Android - the functionality feels flimsy and the layout isn't as user friendly as I thought it would be in comparison to when it is used on a desktop platform.
  • Initially, when first using the product a year or so ago, I received a lot of complaints of random error messages. Though that problem seems to have been solved in the interim.
  • Efficiency is definitely a good description. The easy to use platform allows fellow employees to move through their online apps with ease.
  • Applying new online apps is a lot easier, as we do not have to rely on a central server to pull information.
  • As our client is national, it's good to have quick, reliable cloud access to all sensitive materials without worrying about security issues.
  • Tarantella
Tarantella gave us a lot of issues, but with Oracle Secure Global Desktop [we got] the huge portfolio of Oracle applications from almost any browser, without the headache of application dependencies, plugins, java etc. My fellow employees like the way Oracle Secure Global Desktop gives us the "feel" of many little desktops but with one machine.
I believe Oracle Secure Global Desktop is better used on a larger device such as a desktop or laptop, as the Android platform is a bit confusing when initially introduced to fellow employees who were familiar with the other layout.
