If you're not taking advantage of Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, it's time to take a look.” - Paul Thurrott, Windows IT Pro Magazine April 30, 2008 “Organizations currently running Windows XP on their mobile PCs could save $605 a year per machine by replacing those systems with Windows Vista, using the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack and best practices to improve infrastructure optimization.” - Peter Galli, eWeek September, 2007 Yankee Group analyst Laura DiDio said in an interview that a comparable Microsoft offering could cost as little as one-third of what VMWare charges. “Until recently, there was not much competition,” she said. “Now what I'm hearing from customers is, they're glad to see Microsoft stepping up to the plate. They like VMWare's products, but they don't want to pay those high prices.” - Laura DiDio; Analyst, Yankee Group

Global manufacturer simplifies client management and reduces total cost of ownership with application virtualization “Microsoft Application The Challenge Virtualization helps us Time-consuming application packaging and delivery dramatically reduce packaging Gain control of disparate hardware and software across the time, optimize application enterprise delivery and management Reduce costs , improve software delivery and client processes, and cut the total cost management of ownership for our client environment. It paid for itself in just six months.” The Results - Axel Junghans - Global Client Manager Reduce application packaging time more than 50 percent - Heidelberg Realize 40 percent cost savings through simplified packaging,, faster deployment and shorter problem resolution “The knowledge you need to Empower local IT staff to package applications for local create a virtualized package needs is 10 times less than what you need to create a MSI Accelerate application repair by not requiring a reinstallation of applications package.” - Joerg Manske - IT IO - Heidelberg
    28. 28. Leading technical service provider streamlines Vista migration, accelerates application delivery and enhances client management The Challenge “Microsoft App-V improves the way our Speed application packaging IT staff and end users work. It gives users the flexibility to Enable multiple application versions to co-exist on run applications required for client devices their projects, without any risk of Create a uniform software delivery and management conflicts. And it helps IT simplify and infrastructure accelerate application packaging and time-to-delivery. “ - Joerg Umland The Results - IT Administrator - TUV NORD Reduced application time-to-deployment from one month to several days “We no longer have to test against Streamlined Vista migration and ease project other applications because there’s no management risk of affecting other applications on Enabled applications to follow users the client. Testing takes just one to two days at the most. So the whole process, Enhanced business continuity, reducing downtime to from request to deployment, takes just minutes a few days with Microsoft App-V, Simplified post-acquisition client management instead of up to a month—which is what it can take with locally installed applications.”
