Desktop Virtualization Adoption Trends and Customer Experience 2013

May, 2013


Desktop virtualization adoption continues to rise, but investment has stalled. This study provides an overview of key concepts and vendors in this space. We then examine desktop virtualization adoption and investment trends, providing data on how many organizations have the technology in place, how many are in the process of implementing it, and how many are expanding implementations. We present worldwide adoption and investment rates, adoption by organization size, and adoption in North America over time. We also look at the return on investment experience and total cost of ownership experience of adopters and report on how much they are budgeting per user for new and follow-on investments in virtual desktop solutions. We conclude with recommendations. (18 pp., 8 figs.)
