The University of Wisconsin-Parkside recognized that students were deriving inconsistent experiences from its computer labs because desktop images were difficult to control and time-consuming to change. Students were unable to find the applications they needed and faculty were limited to particular labs that were designed for them. The university deployed the Dell On-Demand Desktop Streaming solution with Dell OptiPlex FLX desktops to centralize management of desktop images and enable students to choose their own set of applications by selecting their image from a menu. Students can use any computer lab and don't have to wait for space at a specific lab that has the software they need.
