Based on work with IDC, Join Senior Director Doug Lane of Virtual Computer as he dives into the art of cost and savings analysis when it comes to Virtualization projects.

Organizations of all sizes are now realizing the many cost-saving benefits of server virtualization, but for many the business case for desktop virtualization is less clear.  The total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages of desktop virtualization versus traditional approaches are very real, but it unlike server virtualization it has little to do with hardware costs and everything to do with operational efficiencies and improved security posture.  In "The Economics of Desktop Virtualization," Doug Lane of Virtual Computer will discuss the key TCO considerations when exploring a desktop virtualization initiative, including an in-depth review of the traditional PC management approaches, server-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) models, and emerging client-side desktop virtualization technologies.
