Microsoft created five Windows Optimized Desktop Scenarios that outline solutions for different types of customers. It's important to realize that no "one size" desktop fits every user's needs. These scenarios highlight how you can use OS, application and user state virtualization to deliver very flexible yet manageable environments for your users:
By examining the different user scenarios within your organization, and taking advantage of technologies such as BitLocker Drive Encryption, Folder Redirection, Offline Files, Microsoft Application Virtualization and Windows Vista Enterprise Centralized Desktop (VECD), you can find the right balance of end-user flexibility and IT management and control. I encourage you to look at these technologies within the context of the Windows Optimized Desktop Scenarios and explore how they can help your organization focus on what's most important for the business, while nurturing a more flexible and productive IT environment.
We've recently refreshed our Windows Vista Enterprise Web site to include up-to-date information on the Windows Optimized Desktop. I encourage you to spend some time there and see how your organization can realize value from these solutions. We look forward to continuing this conversation and helping you realize the benefits of the Optimized Desktop within your organization!
