Webcast – To Host or Not to Host: That’s the VDI Question

Held on: Wednesday, October 14, 2015, 3 PM Eastern

While you’re sold on the idea of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), chances are that the reality of Virtual Desktops may not be working out as well as you had hoped. And you’re not the only one: a recent search on Google for “VDI fail” yielded around 418,000 results!

guy-thinking190VDI isn’t easy. The challenges range from the potential technical snags (licensing, security, performance) to the less predictable business-related issues (employee buy-in, hidden costs, limited resources and scope creep).

But the potential benefits of VDI – including support for mobility, increased security, and simplified desktop management – are far from impossible to achieve. Whether you’re already working with virtual desktops or considering how to begin, you now have a choice: do you take on VDI yourself or outsource it as a service?

On Wednesday, October 14, 2015 at 3:00 PM Eastern, join Andy Doyle, Principle Associate Business Technology Services, PointB Consulting and Brady Ranum, VP Product and Strategy, Dizzion Inc. for a pro and con discussion of the merits of internal VDI versus hosted VDI, or Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS). This 30-minute conversation – meant for business leaders and technologists – will cover the economic, strategic, operational and business factors you need to consider when determining your delivery strategy.

As an attendee, you will learn:

  • What are the pros and cons of VDI and DaaS
