Desktop transformation: Getting started with virtual desktops
Desktop virtualization is becoming a mainstream way of delivering desktops and applications to users. While IT leaders have a choice in vendors and technologies, they must carefully map out the business priorities and then align specific technologies to each user group, all the while keeping costs, technical complexity and risk in mind.
As the question on how to eat an elephant is best answered by "one bite at a time", the recently introduced Desktop Transformation Model provides actionable steps IT leaders and architects can take to ensure that they are well prepared to address IT and business priorities by transforming traditional desktops into optimally managed, transformed desktop computing resources.
This Citrix white paper focuses on real-world implementations of virtual desktop solutions, including:
