SP2 was developed using Microsoft and Citrix best practices, and provides users with Citrix Provisioning Service technology for any device, including Citrix XenApp Server, enabling even faster implementation for the customer and easier management of virtual desktops.

With the SP2 update for Empirum, we’ve extended and optimized our desktop virtualization capabilities in order to support the increasing number of virtualization projects our customers are handling, many of which are a direct reflection of this changing work culture.
