Financial Accelerator for Digital Workspace - Xtravirt

At a glance

A digital workspace is much more than a technology solution. It is transforming the way organisations of all sizes are enabling their workforces, while simplifying desktop and application management or IT administrators.

In many cases, the business benefits of app and desktop virtualisation alone go some way towards justifying the project costs, even before proving a long-term return on investment. However, despite the benefits in security, management, and flexibility, the historic acquisition costs of desktop and app virtualisation, may give organisations pause as they contemplate a go-forward strategy.

Xtravirt designs and builds strategies and solutions to solve complex IT challenges to unlock your full business and technology potential. If a digital workspace transformation is on your roadmap, then in most cases, financial analysis is a must.
