Computer Weekly – 19 June 2012: How to succeed at desktop virtualisation 

In this week’s Computer Weekly, our latest Buyer's Guide examines the tools, technologies and best practices for success in desktop virtualisation.

We look at how universities are dealing with their IT challenges as they await the first intake of students at new higher tuition fees. Deloitte's CIO talks about how the global advisory firm is introducing a bring your own device (BYOD) scheme. And we look at new environmental guidelines that will help companies understand the carbon footprint of their IT. Read the issue now.

    Computer Weekly – 12 March 2013: Will software-defined networking justify the hype?

    In this week’s Computer Weekly, we take an in-depth look at one of the hottest emerging technologies – software-defined networking – and what it means for IT departments.
