Overall Satisfaction with XenApp

XenApp is used to farm out our HIS and EMR systems to all clinical personnel both on site and remotely. Being able to limit the number of installations of our software on a minimum number of XenApp servers allows us the ability to quickly update the software and maintain a consistent user environment for all users.
  • Seamless app deployment - Users are presented with the applications as if they were locally installed onto their desktops.
  • Citrix Universal Printing - Using the Citrix Universal print driver, issues printing at the workstations have decreased by 50%.
  • Citrix Receiver - There is a Citrix receiver for almost all machine types. Physicians connect to their applications using Microsoft, Apple (desktop and mobile) Linux and Android receivers.
  • Citrix Shadow sessions will not work correctly if the user has multiple monitors.
  • Migration between XenApp levels is not a smooth process.
  • Turn around time for deployment of applications is very quick as long as there are no specific needs to the default user profiles.
  • With a proper deployment of XenApp server, it is possible to migrate through specific application updates with no downtime to the user.
Support and stability are better with the XenApp platform.
What functionality is needed for the use? Will Xen Desktop (vdi) be needed> Licensing for Citrix is not cheap.
