We are witnessing a transformation of how consumers and organizational staff members access applications and data. Suppliers have presented "desktop virtualization" as an answer to everyone's problems and yet, a minor percentage of people use virtual desktops? This webcast presents the model of virtualization described in the book Virtualization: A Manager's Guide, the virtualization tools that make up desktop virtualization and examine why this combination of technologies hasn't replaced everyone's desktop system.
