"With the power of HeliX in your hand, you won’t need to staff up just to keep pace with Windows!” Engelhard adds.

Helient announces the launch of HeliX™ and AppFolio™ -- two new products that keep Windows 10 desktops compliant with Microsoft’s Modern Windows Lifecycle.

HeliX is a one-of-a-kind managed desktop delivery service that leverages a subscription-based approach to streamline the refresh, re-composition and delivery of Windows desktops within the enterprise. AppFolio is Helient’s extensive library of enterprise application installers, automated deployment packages, compatibility matrices, and in-depth testing application procedures.

Along with the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has introduced a modern lifecycle for their desktop Operating System (OS) characterized by major new versions released twice annually. In addition to fixing issues and addressing security vulnerabilities, these semi-annual releases introduce brand new features and functionality, resulting in a rapidly and constantly changing Windows platform. And with this major undertaking now occurring on an annual or bi-annual basis, the modern Windows desktop lifecycle represents a permanent 2-4X increase in the number of engineering hours spent on OS and application upgrade work.

“With the current pace of Microsoft Windows – now released twice annually – I was excited to develop a revolutionary product offering that organizes the complex tasks needed for a successful roll out into a seamless and intuitive workflow,” Jamie Engelhard, Chief Technology Officer says. “We heard our clients saying that they were struggling to keep up with the modern Windows lifecycle, and now we are simplifying and managing this daunting process for our CIOs.”

A HeliX subscription provides a continuous stream of the expert skills, knowledge, processes, testing, and troubleshooting necessary to successfully roll out new versions of Windows quickly, efficiently, and with complete confidence in the quality of the end result. As a HeliX subscriber you tap into this wealth of knowledge and information through a secure mobile app which permits you to access all the value-added benefits of the service and to tailor the scope of your subscription as needed.

“With the power of HeliX in your hand, you won’t need to staff up just to keep pace with Windows!” Engelhard adds.

AppFolio complements HeliX by providing subscribers with continuous access to the latest application installers which have been verified for compatibility with Windows, expertly packaged, QA tested, and come with an error-free installation guarantee. An AppFolio subscription provides out-of-band access to updated application packages so no one has to wait for the next version of Windows to take advantage of the service.
