A new survey carried out at the recent IPEXPO event, which took place at London’s Earl’s Court in late October, found that 61 per cent of businesses’ IT departments are planning to adopt some form of virtual desktop technology.
The research, carried out by Centrix, found that although a large percentage of firms were looking to implement a desktop transformation project, few had the information they need to conduct a successful transformation.
A total of 111 IT professionals attending the sixth annual IPEXPO event were questioned as part of the research, which found that 65 per cent said they were planning some kind of desktop transformation and that more than 61 per cent of these were looking into remote desktops.
The results of the survey clearly illustrate that updating desktops and moving into virtualisation is a major priority for businesses. However, there is a need for companies to gain a better understanding of their existing asset usage, as explained by Centrix’s director of product marketing, Richard Pegden. He added, ”Knowing what you have in place and how assets are being used enables project teams to make quicker, more informed decisions about technology selection, application testing and user requirements.”
