TechRadar™ For Infrastructure & Operations Professionals: Client Virtualization, Q3 2012
Burdened With Consumerization Pressures, I&O Turns To Client Virtualization To Deliver Flexible Workforce Computing
August 23, 2012
Why Read This Report
Over the past decade, seemingly every new year promised to be the year for client virtualization. But the market never exploded the way vendors and media predicted. Instead, I&O professionals viewed their technology investment options with an eye toward cost savings and skepticism toward its ability to satisfy their consumerization pressures. As I&O professionals execute on their most significant desktop transformation since Windows XP and extend their workforce computing domain to smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks, and BYOD strategies, we're at a point in which client virtualization adoption is becoming mainstream. But I&O professionals are facing complex decisions about the technologies to invest in and the timeline for scaling out their investments. In this TechRadar™, we have identified the 17 categories that make up the complex client virtualization market. We then mapped these categories according to their commercial maturity and business value to help you build your strategic road map of client virtualization to add to your business technology portfolio.
