Total Economic Impact Of VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure - Healthcare Industry

Cover Image
In July 2008, VMware commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential ROI of deploying VMware View 3, formerly Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.

In conducting in-depth interviews with an existing VMware View healthcare customer, Forrester found an anticipated ROI of between 122% and 128%. Benefits include:

Quantitative Benefits

1. PC replacement savings from repurposing old computers as thin clients.

2. IT support staff savings.

3. Improved worker productivity and reduced PC downtime.

4. Electricity savings from purchased thin client machines.

Qualitative Benefits

  • Improved data and endpoint security by storing information centrally and locking down computers.
  • Improved user experience for hospital staff, and physicians.
  • Better business continuity and disaster recovery.

This study illustrates the financial impact of moving from a traditional one-PC-per-user model to a centralized, hosted virtual-desktop delivery model, and helps readers develop a business case for investing in VMware View.
