Working, as I do, in a large organisation it is vital to control what goes onto the workstation. Because of the type of work we do it is not possible to completely lock down the desktop and clients often require applications to be installed in order for us to service them. This sometimes comes back and bites us.
I am therefore always on the lookout for products that may help and today found PortableApps (new window). Although nothing on there now is immediately of use to my organisation it looks promising. I also like the promise of a dev kit showing how to make apps portable. I’ll be keeping my eye on this one.
