About This Report
While most industry buzz about virtualization has centered on servers, IT organizations have also kept their sights on the potential benefits of desktop virtualization. With server virtualization now a mainstream IT practice, we wanted to find out what progress IT professionals have made with virtualization on the client side. We surveyed 200 IT professionals1 about a wide variety of desktop virtualization topics, including the business and technology drivers behind their implementation plans, how they plan to measure return on investment (ROI), and which delivery models and software vendors they are considering.
The aim of this report is to provide benchmarking data you can use in your own desktop virtualization planning.
The results of our survey are detailed in this report. The goal is to provide benchmarking data about how your peers are approaching desktop virtualization so that you can use this data in your own IT planning efforts.
1 Survey respondents are IT professionals in organizations of 100 to 1,000-plus employees across a variety of industries. See “Appendix” for detailed information on the respondent profile.
