In today’s digital world, modern application delivery lies at the heart of every IT and development team. It allows them to deliver applications more quickly and efficiently, with total control over monitoring, maintenance, and continuous improvement, retaining a competitive edge.
What is Application Delivery?
Application Delivery refers to the process of pooling the various services that can be combined to deliver an application to end-users, wherein the application’s data processing and computing take place over the cloud environment or within a data center.
App delivery promises an enhanced user experience for remote workers, as it offers application functionality without requiring it to be installed on the local system or desktop servers. The process enables remote and in-office workers to access web applications needed to be productive in their work.
Application Delivery Controller or the ADC is the most crucial element of Application Delivery. ADC, a computer network device within a data center, is essentially positioned between the organization’s web servers and the end user’s system to manage network traffic. ADC is part of a more significant Application Delivery Network or ADN, which refers to services deployed via a network to offer higher availability, visibility, and secure delivery for web applications.
Benefits of App Delivery
A cloud-native app delivery system offers multiple benefits for every organization, including higher agility, scalability, better security, centralization of management, optimized costs, and independence from devices.
A recent study evidenced a substantial productivity boost in groups of people working from home. To help support this trend, Application Delivery enables remote employees to access data and services without time and distance constraints. Remote app delivery improves the overall productivity and efficiency of every employee.
Enriches End-User Experiences
An efficient cloud-based software delivery system will prompt the IT infrastructure and improve the end-user experience, offering a smooth run through all processes. Consequently, it has become the go-to choice for all customers.
A cloud-native desktop delivery infrastructure prevents the organization from investing heavily in hardware acquisition and maintenance. Moreover, companies do not require an elaborate customer support team when the end-user experiences are strategically enhanced while you deliver your app.
Enterprise Application Delivery replaces hardware-based systems with slick cloud-native services that are agile and well-equipped to scale globally without compromising the quality and efficiency of end-user services.
Challenges of Application Delivery
Alongside the benefits come a few challenges in implementing the Application Delivery system. They are:
- It becomes troublesome to provide a consistent and enhancing user experience across an increasing number of devices that connect with the cloud-native app delivery network.
- In the case where permission-based access is lacking, connecting multiple cellular devices to a single ADC poses security challenges for the entire network.
- It is crucial for the application delivery mechanism to balance the server load effectively, thereby ensuring the high availability of applications and employees’ productivity.
- App Delivery requires organizations to install app virtualization servers, which are complex to install and configure. Application Virtualization is a comparatively novel concept yet to be adopted by technologically slow-footed organizations.
