App-V and Packaging expert, Rory Monaghan has updated his popular App-V Decision Matrix and extended the scope to include other deployment technologies.

The original diagram is available on his website, but we offered to take his raw App-V flowchart and make it scalable for anyone who wants to print it out in a larger format.  We’ve also converted it into a slide deck and interactive decision tool which you can get a hold of below.

Download the App-V Decision Matrix.

You can download the pdf version below, and we’ll be working with Rory to keep the flowchart up-to-date.

Forthcoming changes will be to revise the Desktop Applications > Add-In or Link to include the option to create a separate shortcut or use RunVirtual and also adding a new branch to Desktop Application > Requires Network Isolation, so make sure you link to this page for the latest version.
