Evolving Computing Market Shifts Focus To Security And Virtualization
July 29, 2009
Why Read This Report
Desktop operations managers are watching their computing environment change. There are now more types of devices and more varieties of operating systems entering the enterprise than ever before. This is leading to an architectural shift, one that moves the "desktop" environment away from the physical device and to the virtual device. At the same time, these desktop professionals are watching their jobs change: Desktop operations teams are now responsible for the security and disaster recovery of the devices (both physical and virtual) that they manage. This means that IT organizations need client management solutions that not only help them manage and secure today's more standardized PC environment but will also be able to support the desktop of tomorrow — one that is more virtual and heterogeneous than ever before.
