Microsoft’s Tech•Ed Europe 2010 in Berlin was a great event, on thing I took away from the event was that the corporate desktop estate looks set to become more and more heterogeneous in nature. With new delivery technologies, more accessing devices and diverse user roles, the move to a component-based desktop model is fast approaching. An essential component in this new desktop model is the user environment…
…By virtualizing the user and managing their environment independent of the desktop, you can reduce desktop management costs, accelerate desktop migration and ensure the best experience for your users – across multiple devices and delivery mechanisms. This is User Virtualization and is now accepted as an essential part of the desktop strategy in most enterprises.
Register now to attend a live webinar and learn more about this game-changing technology.
Learn how User Virtualization:
• Reduces time and cost to migrate users to Windows 7
• Maximizes your use of App-V virtualization technology
• Provides cross-platform personalization of Windows desktops
• Enables personal settings to follow you across devices

Jon highlights some of the options and alternatives available in enabling the adoption of desktop virtualization, including solutions from Citrix, Wyse and AppSense as part of the options on offer.
