AppM Release Notes 2.7

AppM Release Notes - Ito

Executive Summary

With Microsoft Intune in use for many enterprises, supporting its native package format (IntuneWin) is key for application packaging teams. AppM can now create IntuneWin packages alongside other formats such as MSI and MSIX, supporting your journey to modern workplace management.

In this release, AppM now natively supports Nutanix AHV virtual machines for packaging and testing applications. Nutanix AHV is an increasingly popular virtual environment solution requested by our customers and partners.

Highlights

IntuneWin Packaging

You can now package applications to Microsoft’s IntuneWin format (*.intunewin) in AppM. This enables you to manage your apps, ready for deployment to Intune as Win32 apps. Packaging applications with an IntuneWin wrapper enables you to deploy applications with any installation mechanism via Intune (including MSI, exe, or even a batch file) without a full repackaging exercise.
