Virtualization is now undeniably a core part of any business. Andi Mann (Enterprise Management Associates) explores how to drive competitive advantage using better virtualization in the current market with the help of Brian Duckering (Symantec), Nick Carr (Red Hat), Fredrik Sjostedt (VMware) and Chris Williams (Cognizant). The panel discusses various virtualization developments and looks at solutions that address the express needs of end-users and how to develop cost-effective infrastructure accordingly.

 

The value of any company comes from the ability for users to access a system and get a job done. Understanding how this is going to impact your business, and putting the pieces together in the right order so that you can drive competitive advantage is going to be the test in the future. Of vital importance is the management of such projects—it’s not just about the virtualization technology; it’s the manageability of the systems that are ultimately in place.
