CSC Announces 'CSC Dynamic Desktop' Solution Wi...

EL SEGUNDO, California, February 21 /PRNewswire/ --

    - Virtual Desktop Offering is First in New CSC Dynamics Line of 
Enterprise Solutions

    Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) today announced CSC Dynamic
Desktop, a virtual desktop solution and the first in a new line of enterprise
information technology (IT) services designed to dynamically respond to
changing business demands. Offered through a strategic alliance with Citrix
Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS) and based on Citrix XenDesktop(TM), the solution
enhances agility, increases security, reduces cost and dramatically decreases
time needed to deploy or upgrade desktop systems. In addition, CSC has been
named Citrix's first preferred systems integrator for desktop virtualization.

    With CSC Dynamic Desktop, applications and user data are stored on
servers located behind firewalls. This enables employees to access their
"desktop" remotely and securely, regardless of location, and it allows the 
department to rapidly deploy systems to new users or refresh desktops without
having to touch them individually. In addition, customers can run previously
incompatible systems simultaneously and upgrade to systems like Microsoft
Vista that require more processing power without incurring costly desktop
hardware upgrades.

    "We are extremely pleased to be named Citrix's first preferred systems
integrator for its desktop virtualization products and to announce this vital
new service offering to our customers," said David Booth, CSC president of
Global Sales and Marketing. "We chose Citrix based on the strength of its
vision for a complete end-to-end virtualization solution that extends from
the data center to the desktop. By pairing CSC's broad global systems
integration experience with Citrix's expertise as one of the world's leading
application delivery specialists, we offer customers a sound enterprise
business solution backed by proven leadership."

    In addition to the benefits described above, CSC Dynamic Desktop helps
customers advance their green IT agenda; centralizing computing power helps
reduce energy consumption. The solution also helps improve business
compliance, increase business continuity and aid disaster recovery because
the data is centrally secured.

    "CSC's new Dynamic Desktop solution is a key step toward making desktop
delivery a reality for users and, as part of this solution, XenDesktop
enables IT to accelerate the delivery of Windows desktops to office workers
anywhere in a simple and secure manner," said Gordon Payne, senior vice
president and general manager, Delivery Systems Division, for Citrix Systems.
"Our collaboration with CSC helps extend our strategy for transforming data
centers into dynamic delivery centers for our customers."

    "This solution definitely supports a green IT strategy, which is becoming
an increasingly important agenda item," said IDC Research Analyst Michael
Rose. "It does this by enabling organizations to increase desktop utilization
rates, while replacing traditional thick desktop computers with thin clients,
devices with comparatively long useful lives and which use significantly less
