Immidio AppScriber 2.0 is available! Here is a brief introduction into the product: In today’s agile business world, employees want 24×7 self-service access to the Windows applications they need. Immidio AppScriber, allowing web-based self-service application provisioning, is the solution to such requirements. Through the AppScriber frontend, users can interactively provision their own applications or make an application self-assignment request to an approver. All a user needs to do is simply browse or search for the application he or she needs, and subscribe or unsubscribe with one click.
Immidio AppScriber significantly reduces the time consumed by user-initiated application requests, as these activities require no IT intervention, no call to the helpdesk and no support ticket opened. This gives users a sense of independence when selecting the applications they need, while enabling your IT department to retain control.
Immidio AppScriber extends the most popular application deployment solutions, such as Microsoft Installer (MSI) with Group Policies, Microsoft App-V, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, Microsoft RemoteApp programs (as provided with Windows Server 2008 R2 RDS), Citrix XenApp application publishing, Citrix application streaming and Symantec Altiris Deployment Solution.
Immidio AppScriber 2.0 now differentiates between three application types: general applications, mandatory applications and managed applications. General applications were introduced with Immidio AppScriber 1.0, where users can self-assign an application through the AppScriber web interface. The new mandatory application type allows AppScriber administrators to show a list of applications deployed statically to groups of users. This gives users an accurate overview of all applications they have access to.
The most relevant feature introduced with Immidio AppScriber 2.0 is the managed application type which kicks off an approval workflow as soon as the user requests such an application. For this purpose, Immidio AppScriber 2.0 supports a new approver role – one or more approvers can be configured per managed application. An approver is a non-technical manager that is able to accept or reject a user’s request. The workflow process involved supports interactivity and message delivery both through the web frontend and through e-mail.
According to feedback we have received from our customer base, the workflow functionalities added to our product make Immidio AppScriber 2.0 a complete enterprise solution. Now the three relevant roles for application deployment are reflected in the product – application users, non-technical application approvers and IT administrators.
