Japan Virtual Client Computing ROI Analysis 2016

In this IDC study, 550 user companies that implemented virtual client products were surveyed. Based on the results of that survey, the return on investment (ROI) was calculated quantitatively using IDC's proprietary ROI methodology. In the past few years, IDC has been conducting fixed-point measurements for ROI, and ROI values are increasing. Presenting ROI explicitly is an effective method of encouraging user companies, especially the management, to implement virtual clients if they have not yet done so. Hiroshi Shibutani, PC, Mobile, and Client Solutions, senior market analyst in IDC Japan argues, "ROI is an effective quantitative indicator that measures the demonstrable value of IT. Trends suggest future corporate management will be closely involved with IT, and ROI is useful for corporate management in that it permits accurate and robust IT investment and utilization. Based on this methodology, virtual client appears to be a crucial IT method in endpoint. IDC Opinion Methodology Definition Past Data Revision Executive Summary Essential GuidanceS ynopsis
