Application Virtualization

This report examines the aggregate market revenue and vendor shares for the application virtualization sector, including segmentation by geography and verticals. Application virtualization lets applications run on computers and handheld devices without having to be installed. In eliminating that installation step, these virtualization technologies radically change how applications are delivered and used. Application virtualization vendors seek to improve the portability, manageability and compatibility of applications by encapsulating them separately from the underlying operating system on which they are executed.
