In four separate webinars, Desktone and experts who are analyzing, building and consuming virtual desktops as a service (DaaS), will explore how cloud and hosted computing is transforming the corporate PC from a static device into a virtualized asset that is delivered as a subscription service.

Panelists include leaders and innovators from Hurwitz & Associates, IDC, Interarbor Solutions, The 451 Group, IBM and Pike County Schools.
