    Self-Service Desktop Virtualization Deployments
    Enrico Fuiano, Jan Klincewicz, Stefan Drege Recorded: May 29 2013 60 mins
    Designing and configuring production-ready Desktop Virtualization infrastructures takes planning and expertise. Frequently that expertise is engaged in the form of a professional services contract. But how do companies cope with the realities of expanding those services once the implementation team has moved to other projects?

    Cisco Advanced Services consultants will share some of the best practices and related solution offerings that have helped customers around the globe automate their virtual desktops deployments. With a repeatable service engagement framework and a field-proven set of software capabilities, Cisco will demonstrate how you can deliver scalable self-service virtual desktop offerings that include all the main elements commonly associated with Private Cloud frameworks.

    Our senior technical consultants will also illustrate how orchestrating and automating common and repetitive functions enables highly-skilled staff to focus on innovative IT projects while letting software take care of the day-to-day configuration and deployment tasks.
