About this talk
Led by GigaOm Analyst David Linthicum, and co-presented with Simon Gibson and special guest, Carsten Puls, Senior Director, Frame at Nutanix, this free 1-hour GigaOm Research webinar focuses on the value of desktop-as-a-service platforms to simplify multicloud and remove complexities. As the world of IT, including cloud, becomes more complex, private and public clouds are increasingly expected to replace traditional computing and eventually make things easier. However, for most enterprises, the cloud is now an additive to existing traditional systems, and that adds complexity and reduces business value.
Interfaces, or ways that the users interact with the infrastructure is key to removing this complexity. This is the approach where user interfaces are virtualized, in short, complexly abstracted from the complexity of the underlying environment including clouds. A world where IT is more simplistic, thus more productive to the business. So where to start? Begin by addressing complexity head-on. In this
1-hour webinar, you will discover:
• The concept of desktop-as-a-service including how it works, what it is, and where to get it.
• How things have become complex, and how to measure complexity for your enterprise.
• How to understand the business value of dealing with complexity.
• Steps toward mapping out a course of action.
