  2. 2. The Market Forces - Customer’s Top Expectations for VDI Solutions What are the top 3 drivers for your organization to utilize VDI? Simplify ManagementSource: Gartner © 2012 IBM Corporation
  3. 3. Key factors driving Virtual Desktop in today’s business climate Complexity and Complexity and costs of managing existing costs of managing existing Data security and Data security and desktop environments desktop environments compliance concerns compliance concerns Ownership of end point Ownership of end point devices is changing with devices is changing with BYOD programs BYOD programs Increasing mobility of Increasing mobility of work… it is no longer a place work… it is no longer a place for a lot of people for a lot of people Need for rapid Need for rapid recovery from theft, failure recovery from theft, failure and disasters and disasters3 © 2012 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. VDI or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is a better way to deploy andmanage a user-desktop environment Benefits of VDI: • Desktops can be set up in minutes, not hours • IT costs are reduced due to a fewer tech support issues • Compatibility issues, especially with single-user software, are lessened • Data security is increased • Client PCs are more energy efficient and longer lasting than traditional desktop computersThe Desktop Virtualization Market is exploding reaching $10B+ by 2015, and for every $ spent on software, there are $2-$3 spent on hardware and services © 2012 IBM Corporation
