As organizations make plans to move to the cloud, one of the common hurdles they run into is the ability to access their critical Windows applications. In fact, one of the most pervasive (but least discussed) roadblocks to organizations’ digital transformation plans is the inability to provide their users with access to the Windows-based applications they need to be productive on any device, from the cloud. For this reason, most organizations looking to complete their digital transformation are looking for ways to deliver their legacy Windows apps from the cloud. The benefits are many: these virtual applications are lightweight, they do not need to be installed or set up on every device individually, and can be accessed seamlessly anywhere, at any time.

However, this type of application virtualization or application transformation requires more than just redeveloping the application for the cloud. It has to provide the full functionality of the existing apps and take into consideration the efficacy of the applications when running on multiple security, storage, and network environments, making it quite a cumbersome task. So how can a company overcome these obstacles to deliver their existing Windows apps from the cloud in a simple and cost-effective manner?

This is where North Carolina-based Cameyo comes in. “We take a unique approach to virtual application delivery that enables companies to securely deliver the full desktop version of any Windows application to users on any device, from the web browser,” says Andrew Miller, CEO of Cameyo.

Founded in January 2018, Cameyo is the brainchild of Cameyo’s CTO Eyal Dotan, who recognized that every business moving to the cloud still needed to provide their users with access to their critical Windows productivity applications, on any device. Since its inception, Cameyo has secured six partnerships with Google and hundreds of enterprise customers worldwide. Cameyo’s virtual application delivery platform modernizes the secure delivery of Windows desktop applications, making them accessible on any device from the browser. The company’s platform creates an optimized end-user experience in minutes, drastically reduces costs, and provides the choice of deployment - cloud, hybrid, or on-premises.
Discussing the value of the company’s partnerships with Google, Miller elaborates, “We currently have six partnerships with Google, including: Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Chrome Enterprise, Google for Education, G Suite, Google SaaS Initiative, and more. This provides exceptional value to any organization moving to the cloud or pursuing Chromebooks.” The G Suite integration allows users to seamlessly incorporate all of their G Suite permissions and account settings, enabling them to login to Cameyo with their credentials and gain access to all of their G Suite documents and settings. Cameyo also has a mobile application in the Google Cloud Platform marketplace, which gives GCP customers the ability to run Cameyo in their own GCP account.

In one instance, Cameyo assisted Royal Technologies—a Michigan-based manufacturing firm—in delivering their business-critical Windows applications from any browser to all of their users. Initially, the client was running two operating systems on every computer to manage their commercial applications. With Cameyo, users are now able to access their Windows applications from a tab in their browser, eliminating the costs and inefficiencies of maintaining multiple OSs.

According to Robb Henshaw, chief marketing officer at Cameyo, “Organizations are constantly stalled in their Digital Transformation progress by the inability to provide the full functionality of their critical Windows apps to their users. Cameyo bridges that application gap, securely de-livering Windows applications to any device, from the browser. What sets our company apart from the other application delivery companies is our simple and rapid implementation process. Even without IT knowledge, organizations can set up Cameyo and start delivering applications to their people in minutes based on Cameyo’s simple, wizard-based setup.”

Looking ahead, Cameyo’s plans entail expanding its partnerships with Google and other leading cloud services providers. To conclude, Miller reiterates the vision that drives Cameyo: “Today, almost every business trying to move to the cloud faces the same roadblock—the need to provide their users with access to critical Windows apps. Cameyo bridges that application gap, securely delivering Windows applications to any device, from the browser. Cameyo helps clients transform their legacy applications to facilitate a seamless digital transformation journey.
