LUapps: Software Anytime, Anywhere, on Any Device!

Tuesday, March 19 | 2:00PM–2:45PM ET | Room 551
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Delivering applications efficiently to students is a challenge for any college or university. Students arrive on campus with a multitude of computing devices, and academic applications are becoming increasingly complex and difficult to install and maintain. In 2017, Lehigh University embarked on a project to evaluate, select, and implement a solution to be used to serve a number of academic applications virtually to students for any computing device, from anywhere on campus. This presentation will discuss how we approached defining the project requirements, as well as deployment, communications, challenges, lessons learned, best practices, and next steps.

Outcomes: Understand the benefits of using virtualization to provide access to software * Learn about the challenges we faced deploying application virtualization to students * Obtain best practices for embarking on a similar journey to virtualize applications * Identify marketing and communications strategies that can be applied to any campus-wide deployment
