What is AppsAnywhere?

AppsAnywhere is an advanced university app store that supports multiple software vendors' application delivery and deployment methods, all from one customizable web portal.

AppsAnywhere is a beautiful-looking and easy-to-use app store-like portal. It gives end-users a recognizable and familiar way to access their apps, with a simple user experience reminiscent of well-known consumer app stores. It's an enterprise-ready way to get any app to any user, anywhere, anytime and on any device.

AppsAnywhere integrates with a variety of market-leading software delivery and deployment methods, including Microsoft's App-V, SCCM and RemoteApp, VMware Horizon, Parallels RAS (Remote Application Server) and Numecent's Cloudpaging application virtualization technology. With AppsAnywhere, users can also find and launch natively-installed applications and cloud-based (SaaS) apps.
