Jeff McNaught, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer
Thanks to cloud computing, Green IT and virtualization, end users and IT administrators are seeking the benefits of a complete desktop experience on any device. However, the spectrum of end points is more confusing than helpful to most. Today, companies are re-evaluating their end point or client architecture. When evaluating a device strategy, you must look at two key considerations: 1) the impact of the client architecture on the scalability of your data center server(s) and 2) who the end users are – be they mobile, knowledge, task or specialty workers or some other combination. In this presentation, assembly language programmer, engineer, co-inventor of the thin client, and Wyse Chief Strategy Officer Jeff McNaught will compare and contrast several end-point architecture options, how each architecture can accelerate – or in some cases retard – an overall scalability, security and energy strategy.
1. Selecting the best client is core to the overall success of desktop virtualization. Rich, thin, zero, or just plain software.
2. Only way to deliver a bulletproof security story is with an end-point that requires no protection.
3. The architecture for handling remote display of rich media is different across solutions, and significantly affects TCO.
