Virtual Applications are becoming the Future! | Parallels Insights

The enormous computers of the past became smaller and more powerful, and then they became portable. Mobile phones became smart, packing more power and more opportunities for networking—and it’s clear that the direction of the technological revolution is portability, mobility, and more power to the user. Virtual applications are the next step in this revolutionary stride for sustained improvement. Integrated, as they are, with concepts such as the digital transformation and the widespread teleworking.

What are the Virtual Applications?

virtual applicationsStrictly speaking, a virtual application is an application or program that runs on a device without necessarily being installed on it. This means that application virtualization utilizes cloud systems to allow computers, phones, or thin clients to access data and programs available on other devices, thereby creating an accessible virtual enactment of these programs from this device.

This kind of technology opens up many different opportunities in the workplace. The portability that this technology offer adds layers to what can be done, what can be accomplished, and the ways it can be achieved. Virtual applications allow users to access and utilize their data safely from whichever platform they choose—even if this platform happens to be their smartphone.

The mobility that virtual applications offer means that sharing data becomes easier and more instantaneous. Companies allowing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, would see benefits because virtual applications help cut costs and salvage countless working hours. Also, the company’s culture is revolutionized in the wake of this granular, collective personal space. Presentations and meetings would change, and so too would the way tasks are assigned, information distributed, and the way workers themselves go about their business, removing the limits on their office space—or their personal space.

Productivity is at the beating heart of virtual application technology; it enables it, harnesses it, and catalyzes it. It extracts more from the devices that people use, and in so doing, spins the wheel of innovation forward and onward to progress, improving the working environment for everyone, in every conceivable way.
