Horizon Application Manager is VMware's new SaaS application delivery solution. It provides a simple, cross-delivery platform for managing virtual applications – if an app can be virtualized with ThinApp, it can be delivered through Horizon to a desktop, tablet, or mobile device.

This flexible, simple and quick method of application delivery is the future of workforce productivity!
