Electronic: From Citrix back to Fat Client

As the media strikes back at using thin models, likewise in the IS arena, 'thin' might NOT be the thing that you want to use!

Output

Summary

This is a 75 minute electronic case study presentation using WebEx.

Why, after a four-year implementation across 1000 users at multiple sites, a retailer reviewed the benefits actually realised from their Citrix deployment and decided to revert back to a full 'fat client' managed desktop.

Objectives

This case study reveals why one particular Citrix deployment didn't deliver as envisaged, and offers participants the opportunity to put their questions and comments to peers in a new-format event confidential to registering tif. subscribers

Who should attend

Subscribers who currently have or are looking to introduce a Thin Client.
