As they demonstrated a few weeks ago at #MMS2010, the System Center team is working in partnership with Citrix to integrate the management of XenApp with Configuration Manager.

The connector enhances Configuration Manager, enabling administrators to orchestrate the tasks required to deliver applications to XenApp Servers and publish XenApp hosted applications seamlessly and with minimal impact to the user.

They’ve put together a white paper that outlines how the new capabilities can be used to improve enterprise application management.

I think this is a huge step forward as today’s issues where not distributing the app on a Citrix/Xenapp box , but to publish the app thru the Xenapp Console .

I will try this connector in the upcoming weeks at my customers and let you know what my experiences are. So stay tuned .


Hope it Helps,

Kenny Buntinx
