The Irish Times IT team leaders were putting together their virtualization strategy and found it difficult to justify a budget for thin client hardware.
A decision was made not to allocate resources to the acquisition of new hardware, including thin client devices. Against this background, they set about identifying the best solution to convert existing PC inventory into thin clients which would operate within existing IT infrastructure and systems.
With ThinKiosk, the Irish Times can now repurpose and redeploy their existing hardware as ThinKiosk software-defined thin clients. This not only dramatically cuts their costs, but it also allows them to secure the endpoint, manage it centrally, and deliver an enhanced end user experience.
