How close is your IT environment to meeting VMware best practice recommendations? Do you worry that the assumptions, users, and objectives used to design and implement your initial View environment may not be the same today many months after your initial launch? How do those changes impact your environment, your operations, and your user experience? Is this upgrade required?
