Softricity creates calculator to prove ROI
In an attempt to help validate what they do, Softricity released an ROI calculator to show the return on virtualization (ROV) that they can provide a business that uses their Softricity Desktop (their application virtualization and streaming software). 

The calculator is a sophisticated tool which accesses all the application management costs, both with and without the Softricity Desktop.  It then determines the potential savings that a business can realize by using virtualization and streaming.

The ROV Calculator uses customer inputs about their IT environment to calculate results, including the following:

  • Topology: The number of users and devices, including branch locations
  • Applications: The total number of applications in use, the annual number of newly deployed, updated and terminated applications, and typical conflict resolution times
  • Execution platform: The percentage of users running their applications locally (on desktops and laptops) and those running them remotely (on Terminal Servers)
  • Delivery: The percentage of applications distributed manually and those distributed electronically (ESD)
  • Support: The number of application-related calls received by the support organization, and those handled by help desk vs. second-level or administrative support
