Looking for a way to explain virtualization so that even your mother can understand what it’s all about and what the benefits are? Legal Technology Solutions partner Steve Stern has come up with a pretty good analogy to explain a complex topic to an audience unfamiliar with technology, and elaborates in his blog.

Stern’s analogy concerns delivering a speech to an audience. However, the expert speaker is caught in traffic and can’t make it in time.

Check it out if you are looking for a way to explain virtualization to your customers.
