Virtual Desktop Migration
Assess, plan, and optimize for successful virtual desktop and app migrations
Employees need a consistent, high-quality experience that helps them get work done from anywhere. While virtualization offers greater flexibility and simplified IT management, deploying and driving user acceptance of virtual desktops and applications is a complex undertaking. And migrations that lack adequate planning and understanding of end-user experience risk wasted time, money, and even project failure.
But there is a better way – an optimized way – that thousands of organizations have used to succeed with virtual desktop migration. It all starts with deep visibility into your entire IT environment.
Not a Project, But a Journey
Without visibility into what hardware and software users have today and how it is performing, decisions around which users to virtualize and what resources to allocate are made based on assumption or limited data. This approach of guesswork or “lifting and shifting” the physical environment to virtual can lead to costly, poorly optimized implementations and low end-user experience. These issues persist post-migration, and administrators may not be aware of users suffering in silence or able to understand the true root cause of session slowness and other common problems.
In contrast, the most successful virtual desktop implementations treat the migration process as a continuous journey, properly assessing, planning, and optimizing desktops for exceptional digital employee experience with ongoing performance monitoring.
