In this demo we showed how a company can give their employees access to an existing Dynamics ERP deployment in IaaS, from any device, without the data ever being stored on the device.
This demo addressed a very common problem: Organizations have large inventories of apps and some of them are so old/dated that they may be encountering compatibility issues.
Other usage scenarios include a situation where part of an install base is on iOS or Android and there is no app for either of those platforms, or, perhaps, there isn’t a native app, or, the data is sensitive and you don’t want it to be on devices. With Azure RemoteApp you can deliver the apps your users need to all of their devices – and to any platform.
How this helps:
It’s pretty amazing to consider that, with Azure Remote App, you do not have to build and maintain any infrastructure. You can upload your Windows apps to Azure and, leveraging the global footprint of Azure, deliver those applications to users anywhere in the world. Then, when a user requests a service we identify where in the world they are and then direct them to the closest Azure datacenter. You pay as you go and only pay for the capacity that is used.
I’ve written a lot about how to integrate Azure RemoteApp as a part of your ongoing EMM strategy; I can’t recommend this highly enough.
Why you need this in your life:
- This demo leverages a new feature that was just launched in RemoteApp that enables it to be deployed to an existing VNET in Azure., including ExpressRoute. It can also leverage any existing deployments in that VNET.
- It enables users to be productive, using any Windows app (Dynamics in this example), on the go, from any device.
What you’ll need to get started:
- Azure RemoteApp (see download link below)
- Dynamics ERP deployment in an existing Azure VNET
