TTU Application Virtualization with Citrix

Information about Application Virtualization

Application virtualization enables you to run selected software applications from anywhere you have an Internet connection without having to install the software.

To access "virtualized" software, you must have specialized software installed on your device. We have selected Citrix as our strategic vendor partner for this solution. You may find instructions below on how to download and install this software on your device.
