The Client Virtualisation Imperative: IT Leaders Embrace Virtual Desktops That Require Hybrid Tools, Skills and Managed Services
With server virtualisation now well established in the world's data centres, IT leaders are turning their attention to client virtualisation to address some of their greatest computing challenges.

Forrester Consulting recently completed a comissioned study on behalf of Dimension Data of 546 enterprises with 500 or more employees concerning their client virtualisation and end-user computing plans.
