Think you can do VDI cheaper, with better performance, more reliability, and more securely than a DaaS provider? How arrogant are you?!? - Brian Madden - BrianMadden.com

Think you can do VDI cheaper, with better performance, more reliability, and more securely than a DaaS provider? How arrogant are you?!? - Brian Madden - BrianMadden.com | Desktop virtualization | Scoop.it
Derek Yee's insight:

Seems like DaaS is all the rage now...stream your music, videos etc., why wouldn't you want to do the same with your desktop and compute resources? Lots to be said for convenience, but I'd think there are some environments that streaming these types of enterprise workloads and data for a 3rd party provider could be an issue...

Foresight pays off for BYOD pioneer Citrix

Foresight pays off for BYOD pioneer Citrix | Desktop virtualization | Scoop.it
Citrix was one of the early adopters of BYOD, using it as a means to both empower users and showcase the company's software and services.

Puneet Singh's curator insight, January 20, 2013 7:13 PM

Citrix has been running a BYOD program since 2008, before most of us even had a smartphone. The company saw an opportunity to leverage its own technology and give employees the power of choice over their equipment.

Citrix CIO Paul Martine says that back in 2008, it wasn't about phones so much as laptops -- and the company thought it could save money and demonstrate its technology at the same time. "The primary focus was associate satisfaction and cost savings. Our employees told us they wanted to choose a laptop that was outside of what IT was offering as managed devices."
