New desktop technologies such as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) are causing many to consider re-architecting their desktop infrastructure. In this session you will see the progression of the Thin Client, VDI and Remote Desktop architectures, clarify and uncover some Desktop TCO myths, by reviewing major analyst's opinions and their progression over time. We will then go over successful and not so successful desktop selection methods on which we have participated in real IT environments. Finally we will present the Microsoft desktop strategy that focuses on meeting desktop requirements based on roles / personas, rather than implying that one technology fits all. We will go over examples that illustrate when and how to use Presentation, Application, and HW Virtualization offerings, covering Remote Desktop Services, MS Application Virtualization, as well as VDI through Hyper V.

      Yes slides please AND any chance WCL201 Enabling a Responsible Consumerization Strategy session will be posted ?
