Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Webcast This week, The Register’s Tim Phillips was your host for the live Regcast ‘The other enterprise desktop: Because Windows can’t be everything to everyone ’. And very jolly it was too, getting lots of good questions and feedback from viewers on the day.

This event is now available for free on demand. So tune in at your own convenience.

Few topics in the IT industry are more divisive than the option of putting anything other than Windows on the corporate desktop.

Too often opinions are focused on either transforming the entire desktop estate to Linux in a major upheaval or keeping Linux out completely. Yet when we look at how we buy hardware for business it's not a one size fits all approach. Instead it's common to buy different specifications and capabilities to suit different business needs.

So shouldn't it be the same when considering desktop operating systems?

Tim is joined by Freeform Dynamic’s Andrew Buss, and Boris Devouge and Paul Holt from Canonical to discuss how we can analyse:

  • The desktop user needs
  • Segment workgroups
  • Targeting deployments to achieve both business value and user acceptance
