Quantifying the business value of IT investment is vital in today's tough economic climate. Every investment is expected to show strong and tangible financial return. To help organizations assess the economic impact (Business Value) of deploying Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V), analysts conducted an in-depth study of five enterprise companies worldwide. This podcast talks about how the new Forrester Total Economic Impact (TEI) model can be used to estimate tangible values of App-V in deployment scenarios. The speakers discuss the impact of App-V on labor, server hardware, PC/desktop hardware, application management, and helpdesk costs, and they demonstrate how one can use the TEI model to determine the financial return on the IT investments.
