  23. 23. 23© Copyright 2012 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved.Is a non-persistent desktop cheaper?Unless you transition ALL of yourdesktops to the new model, younow have TWO desktopmanagement strategies tomaintainModernizing or Virtualizationapplications is not cheap…and isvery time consumingProductivity WILL suffer formost users as they can’t work likethey always have
