By VMware's count, Horizon Suite will effectively result in 30 minutes of additional productivity gains a day for the typical knowledge worker. That adds up to 625,000 hours of productivity gains in a year -- the equivalent of adding 300 new employees to the payroll just by rolling out Horizon Suite, said Jackson. And if that isn't enough, VMware is investing heavily to drive end-user computing sales.
