Application Streaming or Appliance Streaming?

This article has something to say about it. My bet will be on appliance streaming! Application streaming won't be totally useless but appliances is the way to ensure that all apps for these geographically dispersed workforces will always work , no matter what! always!. I have had enough experience is desktop provisioning and application streaming to realize that drivers will always fail on you on OS level. Some dependency will always choke your application when ported to some locally relocated desktop. But I hate to be the devil's advocate here. Judge for yourself and work out your own individual strategy.

Large technology players likely to make acquisitions to get into application streaming include IBM Corp. and Hewlett-Packard Co., although they could also opt to develop the software internally, while CA Inc. and BMC Software Inc. also could have interest in offering the service to their customers, Mann said.

And invest at your own risk! Read the original news article here.
