Leveraging Desktop Virtualization with Utah State CIO Steve Fletcher

October 26
Duration: 1 hour

Citrix and GOVERNING hit the road this month to discuss the impact desktop virtualization has had on cities and states across the country. Meetings took place with local and state IT leaders in three U.S. cities -- Raleigh, N.C.; Indianapolis, Ind.; and Salt Lake City, Utah -- to learn about the successes and concerns their organizations face whether considering or fully implementing desktop virtualization. We heard how jurisdictions had saved 30 percent to 50 percent on desktop management costs while achieving a host of other benefits.

Steve Fletcher will be joining us for this unique web event. Steve is the CIO for the State of Utah and the former President of the National Association of State CIOs (NASCIO). Steve led Utah to be one of the most award-winning and successful states in the nation, garnering one of only two top "A" grades in this year's Digital States Survey.

Join Citrix and Governing for a live, interactive webinar on Tuesday, October 26 at 2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT where we'll be talking about what every state and local government IT leader, regardless of title, needs to understand about the benefits of desktop virtualization.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • Insights from your peers across the country drawn from our national tour
  • How your colleagues are saving 30 percent and 50 percent of their desktop management costs while delivering better services
  • How desktop virtualization can increase organization efficiency, security and performance ... while enabling workers from anywhere on any device
  • What foundational capabilities need to be in place to pave the way for realizing the benefits of desktop virtualization
