Yesterday I discovered a company called “The App Factory” based in the UK who is offering a fixed price service for (re-)packaging applications for Citrix Application Streaming (part of XenApp) or Microsoft App-V starting at £149 / app. This is great, as migrating apps into a virtualized format can be very time and / or cost intensive – depending on the particular knowledge a customer / partner has. Furthermore it allows including application packaging efforts into the business case calculations without the usual guesswork, additional time for “unforeseen incidents” and possibly at a cheaper rate than doing it inhouse.
