Evaluating Desktop Strategies
Management of user desktops has always presented challenges for those responsible for IT in organisations. A variety of execution models and management concepts has attempted to tackle these challenges, each with varying degrees of success. The advent of desktop, server and application virtualisation has made this challenge more complex, especially in reducing the total cost of ownership.
As a result of the recent economic climate, many IT departments postponed their plans to refresh their desktops.
However, the tide now seems to be turning and this is now an area that is creating more interest as the economy stabilises.
