Tax Season: Meeting the Rush with VDI

This year, Americans have been granted an extension to file their taxes, with a new deadline of Monday, April 18. It’s possible that with those few extra days, many will turn to tax professionals to help them file.

The financial industry sees a vast influx of temporary workers each year during tax season, and this seasonal ebb and flow can often strain business processes and infrastructure. For example, H&R Block scales from several thousand tax professionals to more than 100,000 mostly temporary associates every tax-filing season. Desktop virtualization offers a solution to this problem.
