Cloudhouse Technologies have developed an App Store that requires no player. From within their remote desktop environment, users can access and instantly run any application without needing to install a player, agent and with no other pre-requisites.
IT can streamline version control for all applications within a single environment whilst centrally managing licensing and usage and can dynamically configure applications with the right settings for each user from a single package.
