Cost pressures will force ‘Bring Your Own Computer’ model, says Citrix

Cost pressures will force ‘Bring Your Own Computer’ model, says Citrix

With demanding users blurring the line between home and office computing, and greater financial constraints on businesses, Citrix tips enterprises will next year move to what it calls a Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) style of operation.

In fact, the vendor says ten percent of its workforce will adopt BYOC next year to bring savings, workforce agility and employee satisfaction.

Also among Citrix’s predictions for 2009 is a move by enterprises to make cloud computing part of their IT architecture strategy.

However, although organisations will look to leverage the benefits of the delivery method, it should be treated as one piece of the overall IT toolbox. It predicts most applications will span both on-premises and the cloud, and that vendors trying to lock enterprises into a prioprietary platform will be disappointed.

As firms lower travel budgets due to the economic downturn, they will also consider increased use of remote working technologies, and there will be greater emergence of 3D virtual environments and social networking tools, the vendor says.

In addition, Citrix believes the desktop will stand the test of time, saying desktop-like experiences in web browsers will not be successful. The micro-processor operating system will remain relevant as the centre of computing, it says.
