As Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop continue to be the predominant means for delivering virtualized applications and desktops to any user, anywhere and via any device, many organizations are grappling with the idea of whether and/or how to best upgrade to the latest version of XenApp and XenDesktop. The end-of-life (EoL) process for XenApp 6.5 has already commenced and we are nearing the end-of-maintenance (EoM) period, with support ending June 30, 2018.
