The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on millions of businesses globally. Organizations are constantly on the lookout for digital technologies that can help them get through this crisis and beyond.
Persistent and large scale remote work has become the new norm and IT departments were simply just not prepared for it on such a massive scale. The other aspect is prolonged nature of this new work mechanism that no one had initially thought of.
This does not imply that enterprises already were not in the process of digital transformation. However, before the full onset of this pandemic, each entity was taking digitalization at its own pace, and its nowhere near to what we are currently witnessing.
Covid-19 has increased the urgency to transform digitally manifolds and now, remote readiness has become more of a survival requisite rather than an option.

Desktop as a Service (DaaS)
The concept of DaaS has elevated the status of Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) to a whole new level. HCI is the process of creating multiple, software defined resources such as Hosted Virtual Desktops by intelligently utilizing a single large server or alike.
Within HCI, you have two main deployment models for the virtualized resources. One of them is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), while the other is Desktop as a Service (DaaS). Among both these technologies, DaaS clearly stands out from VDI on many counts.
Seamless Access to Productivity Resources
DaaS provides your remote employees seamless access to productivity resources such as enterprise data and specialized applications. This means your employees working from home will still have access to all the resources they need to get their jobs done.
