Excellent Book for IT Management
on December 11, 2010
Mr. Fox has written a vendor-neutral book that will help IT Managers understand how these types of technologies work at the high-level, the important questions to ask when designing these solutions and, perhaps most importantly, how to sell this to your CFO/CEO. I specifically like his discussion around the importance of SLAs at the application level. I think there are a number of consultants in this world selling to IT Management on the vast savings and improvements these products will provide in IT Operations without consideration for the end users. The purpose of IT is to enable and support individuals so they can focus on their role and not be hindered by the tools they use to do it. If their productivity decreases as a result of moving to a virtual desktop infrastructure, you have done a disservice to your organization.
If you are considering virtualizing desktops within your organization, regardless of the method or vendor, this book will help provide you the framework to plan and make this transition successfully.
