"Desktop computing" has become something of a misnomer. Today's desktop is really an end-user environment defined by a profile consisting of applications, documents and configuration data. As end users rely more and more on mobile devices such as laptops, smart phones and removable storage drives, they need desktop environments that they can access anytime, anywhere.
On the other hand, IT organizations are under increasing pressure to reducing costs and increase productivity while strengthening security and tightening control over corporate information
assets. Some organizations use thin clients to centralize their desktop infrastructure, but traditional thin client models cannot accommodate mobile laptop users and present unique challenges in terms of application compatibility and the overall end-user experience.
The dilemma, then, is how to accommodate user needs (freedom, familiarity, flexibility, mobility) and the needs of IT administrators (security, control, manageability, compliance) using a common framework.
This white paper explains how virtualization can help organizations solve the desktop dilemma, and outlines the ways in which VMware is harnessing 10 years of expertise and market leadership in desktop and server virtualization to deliver comprehensive solutions for unified access to universal clients,
allowing organizations to strike a balance between IT and user needs while improving the bottom line.
