AppSense: Total Economic Impact Of The AppSense Management Suite
by Fred F. Farkel, Thursday, January 30th, 2014


“IT as a service” can be a patchwork of “solutions” which ultimately make resource management more of a nightmare than a dream. Preventing that nightmare is where AppSense shines. AppSense solutions are designed to meet the needs of even the most demanding global enterprises.  With AppSense, desktops, PCs, applications and devices all become interchangeable building blocks that IT can draw from to build their own optimized “IT as a service” fabric. This includes: traditional PCs, virtual desktops, locally installed applications, virtualized applications, remote application sessions, mobile devices and tablet pcs.

In March 2012, AppSense commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying the AppSense Management Suite. The purpose of the study was to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of the User Virtualization Platform on organizations having shared server-based computing environment. For those who are interested in the short, to the point version of the story, Forrester Consulting found that users saw IT operation cost savings,worker productivity cost savings, capital expense cost savings and project-based cost savings associated with application migration. The composite three-year risk-adjusted ROI was 284%, with a “payback” period of merely 5 months. This is precisely the sort of savings that “IT as a service” should provide but often doesn’t.
