With the looming move to Windows 7, IT organizations are faced with how to manage the upgrade of every desktop and application in their company. Desktop and application virtualization hold the promise of solving this problem along with the many desktop management problems that have been plaguing IT for decades. But until recently, multiple barriers prevented widespread adoption of virtual desktop technologies, and in fact, many early desktop virtualization projects failed as a result. This workshop will discuss previous barriers, how they now have been eliminated and why 2010 is becoming the year for desktop virtualization. Learn about all the various options available today - from major virtualization vendors to emerging startups - and why one size does not fit all. Hear the latest about the available desktop and application virtualization technologies, how to assess user desktop requirements across your entire organization, and determine how to successfully select and implement the right technologies for your organization.

Desktop virtualization has become one of the hot spots for 2010, in part because many of the barriers of the past have been eliminated. Along with the promise of solving the decades old problems of desktop management and support, desktop virtualization is bringing with it a renewed look at thin client (now also zero client) computing. How do server hosted applications and desktops relate to thin client computing and thin/zero client devices? How have these technologies changed/improved to become strong solutions for today's desktop challenges. Where do other technologies like Windows 7, smartphones and iPads fit in? Learn if, why and and how all these technologies should fit into your desktop strategy.
