Here the abstract:
The concept of virtualisation is beginning to turn into a practical reality as early adopters realise its value as a step towards the benefits of creating an on demand computing environment. The balance of doubters versus converts remains relatively equal, however, opening up opportunities for consultants and systems integrators to work with customers to implement virtualisation technologies. These will help businesses to manage costs, reduce systems complexity and create an IT infrastructure able to satisfy the needs of on demand computing. Research suggests that IBMproducts and tools will lead the market, spurred on by the likes of Capgemini, Accenture and HP Compaq.
