The process of deploying virtual machines has led IT managers to discover that the value of virtualization -- the ability to pool resources, rapidly deploy new applications, increase resource utilization, and much more -- can only be realized if the process is well managed. Thus, IT management's evergreen goals of maintaining high service levels, reducing infrastructure costs and increasing IT staff productivity -- all well in place before virtualization -- are even more important in today's data center.
I completely agree. Companies are spending way too much money on IT staff and too much time imaging and fixing machines. This is the essence of why InstallFree (www.installfree.com) was created - to provide a seamless user experience when transitioning into a virtual world. Give it a few more years and major companies that actually recognize virtualization as a viable solution will be able to save time and money when it comes to their IT.
