Under the leadership of Federal CIO Vivek Kundra, federal agencies have been tasked with complying with the recent OMB Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative, including the adoption of cloud computing and virtualized IT environments. Are agencies following through with these necessary upgrades, or are they falling behind the times?

But for many the explosion of new virtualization technologies seems overwhelming. How do you make sense of the changing desktop landscape, and arrive at a solution that boosts workforce productivity while improving management efficiencies? Where do you get started?
