Evaluation enables continuity

“The focus of the DreamWorks / DXC partnership in recent years has been to enable future cloud workflows and take better advantage of flexible digital resources. One key project investigated virtual desktop infrastructure. While the COVID-19 circumstances were not the inspiration for the project, because of the work DXC did, DreamWorks was much more ready to pivot into remote workflows and use of HP Remote Graphics.”
Jeff Wike, CTO, DreamWorks Animation
