The administration is ushering out old technologies and accelerating the adoption of new technologies. At the same time, end of life support from Microsoft for XP and Exchange 2003 in April of 2014 are forcing agencies to migrate applications and email to new platforms to avoid tripling (and budget crippling) service costs.
This leaves agencies to assess an array of options to modernize and move to new platforms. Approaches like cloud, agency sharing, and thin client offer budget-saving ways to innovate while fulfilling their agency's mission.
Virtualization is at the heart of these programs, and government's failure rate has been high due to unwieldy, expensive and complicated infrastructure. The ramp-up of virtualization efforts in government requires agencies to take into account infrastructure-related challenges such as scalability, complexity, cost, performance and more. And more agencies are rolling out virtualization solutions that allow Bring-Your-Own-Device users to stay productive no matter where, or how, they work.
