When it comes to desktop computing, sourcing teams find themselves getting to grips with a whole range of change drivers — from the arrival of Microsoft Windows 7 to the new desktop usage preferences of younger employees, while still striving to keep costs down. In Forrester’s discussions of these trends with vendors, service providers, and buyer companies, desktop virtualization has been one of the most commonly mentioned areas of interest. Software vendors active in this area — like Citrix or VMware — promote the cost benefits of their virtualization technologies for enterprise customers. And outsourcing providers themselves have begun to sing a similar tune.
Forrester is very interested to hear how current users are getting along with hosted desktop virtualization — in particular how the cost equation has panned out. If you have some experiences you’d like to share with Forrester, then please post a comment in our blog forum.
