Live Webcast: Simplified, Anywhere, Applications Access with Oracle Secure Global Desktop
By Chris Kawalek on Jan 17, 2012
If you are involved with end user applications in your organization, you've probably come across the following hurdles:
- People want to work from home, and they might even be against installing VPN software.
- People want work on various machines, not just their work issued laptop or desktop.
- Users want to work on non-Windows devices like Apple's popular Macbook Pro, or Linux PCs.
- Applications aren't always on Windows--some legacy applications are perfectly usable, but still run on AS/400 or mainframes.
One of the simplest ways to provide access to all of your applications (from Oracle or other vendors) is to use Oracle Secure Global Desktop. It allows you to host the client side of the applications on dedicated Application Servers in the data center, which are tightly controlled and managed by IT. And it provides a simple, web-browser based way for users to access those applications remotely from Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Solaris. The users don't have to be concerned about installing any client bits or complicated VPN software, or even what platform the application is designed for. And if you're providing access to Oracle Applications, you'll be happy to know that all browser-based Oracle Applications are certified for use with Oracle Secure Global Desktop.
