93 percent of organizations surveyed are running applications or experimenting with infrastructure-as-a-service
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is rapidly gaining popularity because of the trends in “Mobility”, “BYOD”, and the need for cost efficiency. With DaaS, you can get access to your applications anywhere, on any device (laptop, desktop, tablet, smartphone, zero-client etc.).
Within a DaaS environment, your company can expect to have predictable monthly costs. You are no longer responsible for maintaining application licensing, software patching, or repairing hardware in the event of failure. Virtual corporate resources and intellectual property are held more reliably and securely than any kind of self-managed solution could provide. Your employees can be “on-boarded” and “off-boarded” very quickly while your company data remains protected in a secure environment.
Some of the most compelling benefits of DaaS:
Allows organizations to consolidate the number of servers supporting desktops
Central management and deployment of applications and updates
Move to a Zero Client/Thin Client
Employees are able to work from anywhere on any device
Good for remote users
All your files are stored in one place
BYOD “Bring Your Own Device”
Employees want to BYOD
Allows organizations to still have control over their data
As a result, your company becomes more technologically agile. You can expand and contract your IT capabilities in rapid response to changes in the business environment, without making any additional investments. Your employees enjoy the morale boost of a flexible kind of productivity increase, which allows them to work as they best see fit.
Embrace a mobile work style by utilizing the Cloud to access business applications and desktops on any device and in any location. DaaS eliminates the need for software maintenance and makes purchasing and managing workstations simple and fast. No need to manage servers or hardware and obsolescence becomes a thing of the past in the right Daas ecosystem
