2015 was an impressive year for product announcements and innovations. Liquidware Labs re-released the FlexApp Layering platform after a significant architecture shift. Customer adoption and validation for FlexApp has been extremely positive. Looking back, something seemed to be missing in the EUC space with respect to application lifecycle management. Application virtualization started off strong but has tapered off lately, primarily because of compatibility challenges.

FlexApp Layers from Liquidware Labs is focused on application life cycle management and delivery. The platform optimizations allow for seamless integration with many different vendor technologies including Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop.
One of the many challenges within the challenge of a basic application lifecycle centers on the delivery of applications to end users. The number and types of devices leveraged by end users is expanding daily and enterprises are now expected to essentially accept this change and improvise.
