Public sector CIO claims 40% cost saving from virtual desktop deployment


"The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is deploying Citrix desktop virtualisation software and other tools in a move that will save £3 million a year while boosting efficiency and flexibility for mobile workers.

The announcement comes after it was revealed that Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines has deployed Citrix cloud and mobile infrastructure in order to provide a faster, more reliable IT system.

As part of a move towards a more agile and cost-effective IT infrastructure, DCLG has deployed Citrix NetScaler Gateway, Citrix XenApp and Citrix XenMobile across its estate in an attempt to give employees mobile access to the apps and data they need to work more efficiently.

The deployment has seen the introduction of a virtual desktop application that enables employees to remotely access XenApp desktops from a range of devices.”
