Posted by Meghan Simmons on Dec 2, 2016

The Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO) has a difficult task as the liaison between IT and end users (physicians, clinicians, nurses, etc.). This role has become exponentially more challenging when you factor in the demands of achieving Meaningful Use and integrating with the Health Information Exchange (HIE).

With Citrix and VMware validating the market for application layering with their own solutions (AppDisk and App Volumes, respectively) and Unidesk sweeping this year's Best of Citrix Synergy and Best of VMworld awards, it's clear that layering is the future of application packaging and lifecycle management, displacing legacy application virtualization and agent-based PC management (MSI) technologies.

Last week at VMworld, we had the opportunity to catch up with many of our customers. Some just stopped by to say hi.

And others hung around to talk with attendees about how much time Unidesk has saved them and how easy Unidesk makes app packaging and image management in their VDI and Citrix XenApp environments.
