IT project: In its rehabilitation efforts with prisoners, the Justice Department of Belgium wanted to provide inmates with desktops while still retaining control. The department's idea won out based on the rich variety of technologies used to deliver the virtual desktop stack in the core layers of operating systems, applications, user virtualisation and an array of device-access types, including PCs, dumb terminals, PDAs and smart phones.
What the judges said: "This project demonstrated that virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is more than just installing a client OS and fitting a provisioning server to virtual infrastructure."
