Priority 2: The Application and Desktop Virtualization initiative will provide greater reliability, possible reduced annual costs, and enhanced system applications security. Through the virtualization of the desktop, each user's profile and desktop are stored centrally in the data center to be available for use from any pc or remote system given the appropriate security measures. This technology is rapidly becoming the standard deployment for organizations as they move more applications and capability to the "Cloud" and seek to provide more reliable and efficient service. This request will also lead to the deployment of virtual application technology. The ability to manage city software applications from a central platform rather than deploying the system to every desktop will save significant amounts of time needed to "touch" each desktop and/or deploy the systems individually over the network. this way, each user accesses the software they need using the latest updates and tested systems. This will provide greater reliability, reduced annual costs, and greater security with respect to the city's software applications. This initiative should lead to decreased costs in annual desktop system replacements (reduces need for certain computer components such as a hard drive).Pilot and Proof of Concept of Virtual Desktops was funded as part of the FY 2016 capital budget and represented costs for the development and testing (proof of concept) of virtual application and desktop technology.
