Case Study: BFSI


Introduction

This case study of a Financial Services company is based on implementation of Virtualizing Desktop using VMware Horizon View customers by Indus. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“I think if we had not started virtualizing our desktops 4 years ago, life would be much different. VMware Horizon View has allowed us to continue to be more agile and stay in front of our users needs, rather than constantly playing catch up in a completely iron world.”
