FlexApp One, Offline Layers?! Yes we did!

Today we announced the General Availability of FlexApp One, a new feature in FlexApp that revolutionizes the way that app layers are made portable and consumed.

FlexApp One untethers FlexApp applications by containerizing them in a self-sufficient executable. Benefits include rapid application deployment through any means, including popular cloud file sharing services, and optional deployment with Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. FlexApp One applications remain elastic and can even go offline to support the increased demand in work from anywhere workforces. That’s right, physical PCs and laptops are supported as long as they are well-managed – unencumbered by multiple software packages installed/uninstalled by users.

Remember, FlexApp and FlexApp One applications are never “installed” to the Windows OS, therefore they don’t degrade the PC, virtual workspace, or Server OS overtime. The result is a clean base image that is easy to maintain and apps that are very easy to deploy and update.

FlexApps attached apps never taint the OS or base image the way traditional software installations do.

Since FlexApp One is a feature benefit of FlexApp, customers that have FlexApp are already eligible to add FlexApp one, just reach out to us and we’ll send you an additional license key.

FlexApp and FlexApp One are compatible with all types of software installations including EXE., MSI, MSIX, App-V and others. FlexApp boasts a 90%+ compatibility rating for apps, much higher than other solutions that claim to simplify app deployment and attachments.

FlexApp is different, VERY different than any other layering or app attachment solution on the market today. If you’ve been disappointed by layering in the past, I’d bet you never used FlexApp. See for yourself in this NEW short feature video below, demo included.

First in-Person Conference in over a Year, HIMSS 2021 Vegas Trip Report

HIMSS 2021 just wrapped up and we thought we’d share a few thoughts on the conference.

This was the first in-person event that Liquidware has been able to participate in 17 months due to Covid-19 cancelations. We’ve all been personally affected by the pandemic in many ways and we hope you are doing your best to stay safe while continuing to experience life and work. We were excited to have the chance to see the emergence of a bit of normalcy with an in-person conference like HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society). Strict measures were taken by HIMSS to ensure a safe conference including mandatory individual health checks, masks, and more.

Masks off for the Pic.

We exhibited in the IGEL Ready pavilion and would like to thank IGEL for their leadership in “getting out there” and committing to this event in a big way. More than 20,000 people attended the conference in Las Vegas last week, just less than half of the attendance that the 2019 show in Orlando saw. Still, this was a sizeable conference. While foot traffic was noticeably lighter than in previous years due to the impact of Covid-19, we had many great conversations with healthcare IT professionals.

We shared ways that Liquidware solutions have helped with the Work from Anywhere movement and specifically how we have kept many hospitals’ physical, Citrix and VMware Windows workspaces performing flexibly throughout the pandemic. Many were interested in our Liquidware FlexApp layering solution that will soon be extended to support Microsoft Endpoint Manager and offline use cases through a forthcoming FlexApp One feature. We also discussed the emergence of Microsoft AVD, Windows 365 and Cloud PC and how the entire Liquidware Digital Workspace Management suite already supports these platforms today.

IGEL Ready is now one year old!

Several attendees were interested in how Liquidware Stratusphere UX has been extended to provide many additional endpoint device metrics, including Wi-Fi distance and performance checks to IT help desk staff support work from home users. Many attendees were interested to see our seamless support of thin clients and edge OS solutions such as the IGEL OS. Our built-in Stratusphere “Connector ID” agent is the easiest UX solution to deploy if you are an IGEL customer.

LG provided cool new Curved Thin Client monitors for all IGEL Ready Exhibitors. .

If you are interested in repurposing some or all of your PCs to the IGEL Edge OS, you can arrange for a free assessment of your PCs and laptops. We’ll jointly run a background assessment and you’ll have the results in about a week to give you clear next steps on your IGEL Edge OS journey. Engage with us here to get started.

Liquidware to Exhibit at HIMSS 21 – Meet with Us for Free Amazon Echo Buds!

Liquidware to showcase digital workspace management for healthcare provider organizations.

Liquidware will be exhibiting at HIMSS 21, Las Vegas August 10-12 in booth #2859 in the IGEL Ready Pavilion. While Liquidware has experienced significant growth and demand for digital workspace management in the last year, the event marks the first in-person event that Liquidware has had the opportunity to exhibit at since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. More than 21,000 are reported to be registered to attend. We’re looking forward to seeing many of you!

We will be demonstrating how our solutions provide seamless digital workspace management for healthcare workers. Stratusphere UX delivers end-to-end monitoring and diagnostics while FlexApp layering simplifies desktop image and application delivery. Additionally, we will also demonstrate how ProfileUnity™ integrates with secure single sign-on authentication through solutions such as Imprivata OneSign. You’ll also see how we can facilitate “follow-me” workspaces, allowing healthcare staff to provide better care for patients by having the provider’s profile and group policies follow them from station to station. The use of ProfileUnity also allows admins to select only local printers to deliver to specific user groups which allows them to choose selected printers close to their location(s) instead of an entire list. Then Stratusphere UX™ and ProfileUnity assist in reducing login times allowing healthcare professionals more time with patients.

Liquidware is among a select group of exclusive partners to participate in the first annual IGEL Partner Pavilion at HIMSS 21, the healthcare industry’s information and technology event of the year. Here, alongside IGEL and other key IGEL Ready partners, Liquidware will be showcasing their leading digital workspace management. We’ll also be showcasing how Stratusphere UX can easily assess any organization’s desktops for the IGEL OS, saving money and creating huge ROI. Remember, you’ll find us in a demo pod in the IGEL Ready partner booth pavilion #2859. Meetings are available on August 10-12 during exhibition hours. If you are one of the first several enterprise healthcare organizations to schedule a 20-minute meeting you’ll be given a pair of Amazon Echo Buds (earbuds)! We have a limited supply so hurry! Here’s a link to our online calendar to schedule now!
