Know Your Facts: Understanding The Realities Of Desktop And Application Virtualization

July 29, 2009


Why Read This Report

Despite client virtualization becoming increasingly popular, there is still much confusion about the different technologies and how they will play out in the enterprise. During end user interviews, inquiries, and roundtable discussions, Forrester found many misconceptions about client virtualization. Specifically, many firms still believe that client virtualization is a security risk or that a single technology will help them improve manageability, empower remote workers, and virtualize all their applications. To make matters worse, vendors exaggerate the cost savings from client virtualization and cite shorter ROIs than are typically experienced by clients — instead of highlighting the actual benefits that make client virtualization worth investing in. For these reasons, we've outlined the five most common myths about client virtualization, and more importantly, the key benefits you should use to drive your client virtualization business case.
