White Paper VDI—Simplify your migration to Windows® 10 and beyond 4 In this way, IT can provide instant access to business apps and Windows 10 desktops on any device, from anywhere, without time-consuming manual deployment across every location in the business. Employees face no interruption in supportability—even if you haven't performed application compatibility testing. For users continuing to run older laptops and PCs, thin clients and other non- Windows 10 compliant devices, Citrix HDX user experience technologies ensure the same high-performance experience as those using newer endpoints, including enhanced support for peripherals. IT maintains centralized control over access and data protection, including new security features focused specifically on protecting sensitive resources from loss or theft. Move apps to Windows 10 While there aren't many architectural changes from Windows 8 to Windows 10, many users are still on Windows XP or Windows 7, and running apps developed for those platforms. You still need to make sure these apps are compatible with the latest versions of your desktop OS. Traditionally, this is a time-consuming and costly process with engineers installing and testing apps one by one. Citrix AppDNA, a platinum edition feature of XenDesktop, lets you automate and analyze application compatibility and remediate any issues quickly, reducing the cost and complexity of application upgrades, migrations and updates by as much as 90 percent. Standardize on Windows 10 desktops When the time comes for your organization to standardize on Windows 10, the rapid provisioning technology of XenDesktop can be used to push out Windows 10 virtual desktops to every user in every location—instantly. With a single golden image in the datacenter, management becomes far simpler and more efficient. The same is true for support and security; if a user's desktop becomes corrupted or infected, a simple reboot will restore a pristine image, eliminating the need for further inter vention. Analysts, customers and the media agree that using Citrix desktop virtualization to implement VDI alleviates the pain traditionally associated with operating system migrations. For example: • In the Forrester Wave™: Server-Hosted Virtual Desktops (VDI), Q3 2015 report, XenDesktop earned the highest score in current offering and strategy categories. • "We were able to upgrade all of our thin clients with the latest Windows OS with a better performing and customizable desktop that users continue to rave about." — Derek Christopher, IT director, Hines and Associates Access Apps and Desktops on Any Device
