The intelligent, fast and simple way to transform and manage apps in multi-cloud digital workspaces
Apps2Digital, an Azure cloud hosted service, enables the rapid migration and workflow automation of applications to on-premises and cloud-based digital workspaces. Adoption and lifecycle management is drastically improved for all types of applications in Citrix Workspace implementations.
Apps2Digital provides a clear step-by-step approach to transform applications for deployment in Citrix Virtual App environments. The service automates virtualization and delivery workflows for legacy and current business applications, publishing to Virtual App environments in minutes, on-premises or in the cloud allowing users to self-subscribe through the Citrix Storefront. App inventorying provides extensive insights to apps in use, allowing a comprehensive understanding of usage requirements and how your apps are working to help with correct sizing. Apps2Digital enables you to accelerate time-to-value, drive and track adoption of Citrix Workspace.

Four simple steps to transformation
- Using our open source Windows Endpoint Agent, Apps2Digital analyzes the base of installed applications across your entire organization. It creates an app inventory with a resource profile that includes CPU and memory utilization to size your virtual environment requirements.
- All apps are loaded into Apps2Store, an extension to Citrix Storefront to enable user self-service subscription. The platform then prioritizes application virtualization. Being platform agnostic, any virtualization technology can be chosen for deployment.
- In parallel with the step 2, applications are deployed to the cloud. Apps2Digital manages multi-cloud workspaces so as many different public or enterprise cloud (on-premises) platforms can be used to host demand. It provides historical app usage so IT can easily forecast cloud resource requirements.
- Users are seamlessly transitioned from local to virtual applications by automatic rewrite of local application execution paths. With client-side apps remaining installed, roll back can be simple and quick. User adoption is tracked throughout the process helping the organization to speed digital transformation.
