IT@Intel: Software as a Service
In a big company like Intel, users get their software in a variety of ways – on their desktops, delivered over a network, or some combination of those. Catherine Spence, an enterprise architect with Intel IT Research and Technology Development, studies alternate and emerging compute models for enterprise operations. In this audio podcast, Spence discusses what her group learned through a recent study on the effects of streaming and virtual hosted desktop computing models on server and network utilization. On-demand software, or Software as a Service, is one of the emerging software delivery models showing benefits in boosting productivity and lowering costs.
