A January 2006 Forrester Research report states, "Desktop virtualization is the future of the corporate PC." But what exactly is application virtualization and what tangible benefits and cost savings can it have on businesses? David Friedlander, senior analyst at Forrester Research and noted expert in desktop virtualization, will lead this free webinar exploring the savings that application virtualization can deliver in traditionally resource-consuming desktop deployment and management areas such as application deployments, updates, patches, terminations, help desk support and server management.

As part of the webinar, Softricity will also unveil how its new Forrester Consulting Total Economic Impact(TM) (TEI)-compliant Return on Virtualization(TM) (ROV) Calculator can help large organizations rapidly and thoroughly evaluate the time and cost savings possible with the Softricity Desktop, the premier platform for enterprise software virtualization.

Softricity, which has more than 500 customers worldwide, has been providing software virtualization solutions for more than five years. The Softricity ROV Calculator shows exactly how Softricity's application virtualization and on-demand streaming affects an enterprise's total application management. The guiding principle behind the ROV Calculator is that one must examine every step in the application management lifecycle--deployment, update, support and termination--in order to determine its true costs. The calculations are based on the time required to complete the tasks and the associated costs for IT staff, as well as the impact on end users who experience downtime during the various processes.
