Desktop virtualization redefines how desktop computing is perceived and delivered. To increase your chances of success, break the implementation project into three parts:
- Assess the current state and strategy. Look at the current desktop delivery model. What you can do in future depends on what you currently do.
- Run a pilot implementation, not just a proof of concept. A true pilot should be a microcosm of the future implementation. Take the opportunity to test assumptions and infrastructure requirements.
- Communicate and rollout your desktop virtualization solution over time. A big-bang approach will lead to more grief than success. Take the time to gather feedback and incorporate lessons learned into the implementation plan.
