Event Details

Mapping Session: Virtual Desktops
*You must be a registered for Gigaom Structure to attend this event.

In 2011, IT pundits predicted that virtual desktops will become mainstream by 2014. Then the enterprises encountered storage performance and licensing issues.

Finally, amidst a perfect storm of market drivers and use cases, in 2013 we saw enterprises overcoming inertia to start adoption of virtual desktops.

A virtual desktop platform facilitates deployment of complete workspaces in the cloud, delivering business & productivity applications alongside a complete back-office system to users anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Virtual desktops empowers organizations to support mobile, distributed workers, embrace BYOD, increase responsiveness and service quality, all without compromise to security, performance or control.

This interactive c-level panel discussion will highlight the pros and cons of virtual desktops.
