Virtualization and Mobility – Work and Play All on Your Device of Choice – BYOD!

I’m posting links to couple of videos, one from a good friend and mentor, Chris Fleck VP of Mobile Solutions for Citrix plus another video from VMware which talks about their initiatives also about allowing users to securely access business applications on their tablets or smartphones. We are now past the “would like to have it” to now saying “I gotta have it” in order to do my job wherever my travels take me or even if I’m just away from desk for a few minutes. The beauty of virtualization is that all the interactions take place in the data center and all of what you see on your screen is a “virtual” image of what you are processing and thus would leave nothing behind if you accidentally left your device behind at your hotel or in the cab for example.

Take a look at the 2 video’s I list below and I would welcome your comments to whether you see this as a trend or does it actually solve a business problem that we can tie an ROI around to get your executives to buy into BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Thanks!
