There are a number of technical and functional benefits that can be derived from implementing a virtualized desktop infrastructure, but making a strong business case for VDI in financial terms can be a major challenge for IT professionals.

Sean O’Mahoney of Republic Bank and Trust Company provides a real-world example of how to make the business case for an investment in VDI. To start, Sean provides an overview of the IT challenges he faced while supporting the infrastructure for his organization’s seasonal employees. With VDI, he was able to eliminate the costs and overhead associated with persistent user sessions, so dramatically reducing support issues and increasing day-to-day operational stability within the company. Sean discusses the challenges and benefits of ramping up his infrastructure for tax season—and laying a solid foundation for future growth in the business.
