Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps: Plan App Virtualization and Use MAP

IT administrators who want to gain experience using Microsoft virtualization technologies to plan for and implement application and desktop virtualization in a medium to large organization; learners looking to prepare for the 70-694: Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps certification exam


Expected Duration
115 minutes

Before you can start to implement a VDI environment for desktops and applications the current environment needs to be assessed, as well as the client requirements. Microsoft offers the Microsoft Assessment and Planning toolkit to do this task. It can ensure applications run in different scenarios, such as having multiple versions of the same application. Once the applications are assessed, App-V can be used to deploy the applications virtually to the clients. This course will demonstrate how to use MAP and how to install the App-V server components. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft Exam 70-694: Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps certification exam with credit toward MCP, Microsoft Specialist credentials.
