Assessing Hosted Virtual Desktop Service Offerings

Gartner just released a MarketScope for emerging hosted virtual desktop services, comparing 10 vendors. Evaluation criteria included market understanding, vertical/industry strategy, current service capabilities, feature sets and skills, overall viability of the  business, customer experience delivered, and the ability of the organization to meet its goals and commitments. Congratulations to eG Innovations’ partner Computer Sciences Corporation which scored the highest rating – Strong Positive.

The analysis states “CSC’s Virtual Desktop Services (VDS) proved to be sound and well developed. It is the largest in terms of customer size and its customers were particularly enthusiastic about CSC’s project planning and implementation capabilities, as well as the steady-state operation results. Combined with its strong data center capabilities where it hosts its HVDS solution, CSC is a very strong competitor in the HVDS solution space.”

eG Innovations’ VDI Monitor is a core component of CSC’s VDS offering.
