This VMware Horizon reference implementation case study focuses on a View virtual desktop implementation at a European financial services company. At this company, end users required more features and flexibility, including session portability, enhanced application performance, and the ability to access applications remotely from a broad range of devices. In addition, their end-user computing platform”mostly desktop PCs running Windows XP”was approaching obsolescence.The two key drivers for the implementation were retail branches and remote access. A thin-client approach for the retail branches provided a low footprint, reduced costs, and more flexibility. The organization™s large user population also required a remote access solution that would support the company™s BYOD policy. The organization successfully launched a more flexible, secure, and productive working environment, while lowering management overhead and costs.
