“We have now fully deployed the virtual desktop solution we worked on with Kovarus and the biggest benefit I can say right now is that my executives were thrilled. Initially, it was a stretch for our company to move away from a familiar desktop environment to a thin computing model. But the benefits and savings of virtualization and consolidation far outweigh the uncertainty of charting new territory.”
