VMware Horizon 1.5 has been released.
For those of you that are not familiar with VMware Horizon Application Manager, it simplifies IT by providing a unified application catalog for management and provisioning of virtualized Windows applications, enterprise web applications and SaaS applications.
Horizon was designed to directly address the consumerization of IT occurring in the enterprise. It does this by securely delivering diverse apps to end-users on the devices of their choice. This user-centric management platform enables IT to extend corporate policy and control to applications and services across the public and private cloud. We do all of this with an identity centric management layer that allows IT to regain much of the control that is so often lost by the proliferation of the three headed monsters of cloud services, public networks and smart devices.
Horizon Application Manager 1.5 is full of new features, which will enable IT to control, manage and deliver policy driven application services to end-users across every device.
