Most client management and workspace management tooling today still relies on complex, on premise, implementations and needs full time employees for management. The result: high adoption rates in organizations with thousands of employees but smaller organizations lacking knowledge, money and time to implement and use these solutions, are stuck with manual labor for software distribution, patching and support.
A second challenge with these traditional solutions is their ineffectiveness to manage mobile notebook users. Notebooks need to be connected to the corporate network to install new software and updates or receive support, resulting in large accumulations of software and patches to be installed when a rare connection is established.
The Scense module Repository Management was used for years by our customers to manage application repositories centrally and distribute applications unattended and conflictfree. Because of developments like Windows Installer, application virtualization and our own Adaptive Installer, the need for a module like Repository Management diminished. A recent customer survey reveiled that all customers using this module started projects to shift to other application distribution methods. Because of that we decided to end the support of this module in the near future.
