I enjoyed hearing from our government and education customers that are leveraging virtualization technologies to:

  • reduce costs and do more with existing resources
  • create a borderless classroom in schools and universities
  • enable mobile government workers
  • provide virtual workers with tools for data, voice, and video applications
  • address security challenges
  • prepare for the workspace of the future

I would like to hear your best practices and thoughts about the changes in the work place and how technologies are helping you support your students and teachers, citizens and constituents, and government staff and leaders.
