The ongoing pandemic has rapidly fuelled the demand for DaaS and VDI solutions globally. This trend was further substantiated by a recent study published by Premium Market Insights. The research shows DaaS and VDI are on a strong growth trajectory.
According to the research, the Covid-19 pandemic has further enhanced the urgency for deploying remote work solutions. When it comes to secure and robust Work from Home (WFH) platforms, both DaaS and VDI emerge as top candidates.
Barring a few organizations that need highly customized remote solutions, most enterprises have looked up to third party Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud for their remote productivity needs.
The pandemic had otherwise placed severe limitations on the ability of businesses to setup in house remote solutions on such a short notice. Even if you could contemplate such a solution in house, procuring the requisite hardware was yet another challenge.
DaaS Providers Answer the Pandemic’s Call
The research observes that Desktop as a Service (DaaS) providers like dinCloud on the other hand, were amply equipped to fulfill the skyrocketing demand for remote work solutions. Another key element that DaaS providers had up their sleeves was top notch security.
Even amidst this crisis of global proportions, we are witnessing the highest levels of cyber attacks in recorded history. As if the pandemic alone was not enough, businesses now also have to cope with a multitude of cyber threats to their remote productivity solutions.
Cyber miscreants were quick to identify and capitalize on security gaps in makeshift remote work solutions resurrected overnight. Most IT personnel, while setting up Work from Home solutions, treated the whole process as a short term exercise.
However, as the pandemic intensified and prolonged, businesses across the globe realized that remote work was here for the long haul. Some studies have even found that Work from Home (WFH) is quite likely to become a permanent feature even post pandemic.
In the midst of all these odds, it was DaaS providers like dinCloud that rose to the challenge and offered remote work solutions that were both reliable as well as equally secure. The study has chalked out a very optimistic outlook for DaaS and VDI even till 2027.
Pandemic Accelerates Digital Transformation
The study has found a strong positive correlation between the ongoing pandemic and digital transformation initiatives. Businesses across the globe rallied to Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud to sustain mission critical operations remotely.
As a result, many digital transformation initiatives that were either never brought into action or progress on them was next to zero, were revived altogether. Now, digital agility was not a matter of choice or preference, but a key survival instrument.
Unlike the deployment of on premise VDI or similar solutions, which need a long planning and execution timeframe, DaaS solutions were instantly deployable. This made Desktop as a Service or DaaS the top choice for millions of businesses for their remote work needs.
Future Growth Trends – 2020 to 2027
The study has forecast a strong adoption trend for DaaS solutions and this momentum is expected to remain strong even till the year 2027. As more and more enterprises adapt to the “new normal”, DaaS and VDI will form the bulk of solution set.
According to the research, a sizable chunk of future investments in the IT sector will be channelized towards enhancing DaaS capacities and capabilities. As a technology, DaaS will be pivotal for digital agility and transformation over the coming years.
It is expected that the growth of DaaS market will easily outpace the overall growth in IT related spending. DaaS is a highly versatile and potent technology that will continue to play an instrumental role in remote work and BYOD initiatives till 2027.
