The past couple years, we have witnessed a major evolution in how enterprise workloads are managed. By the current year 2022, we find ourselves transitioning, yet again, from a fully remote work model towards a hybrid workforce model.
A hybrid workforce model is even more challenging as compared to full-on remote work scenarios. The reason being that hybrid work needs to incorporate the flexibility of remote work, yet provide seamless security and productivity of on-premise environments.
Still, cutting edge cloud computing technologies like Desktop as a Service (DaaS)are pretty much up to the task. DaaS offers unique capabilities to deploying enterprises that are best suited not only to a fully remote workforce, but a hybrid work model as well.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is on a sustained growth trajectory globally. As per a recently published report on remote work solutions, it is estimated that the demand for Virtual Desktops will grow at a healthy rate of 17% between the years 2021 and 2026.
In this post, we will discuss some factors that will prove instrumental in the continued growth of DaaS solutions globally. Some of these factors can even be taken as up-coming trends for the DaaS industry during the year 2022.
Seamless Hybrid Work
As hinted earlier in the post, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) will continue to be a provider of seamless hybrid work environments. DaaS offers its end users a seamless end user experience, whether it’s the home, the workplace, or a mix of both.
The outcome of a high quality DaaS solution, like dinCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops, is a highly productive environment for a hybrid workforce. Employees will have seamless access to the enterprise resources to get things done in an efficient manner.
Re-Aligning Endpoint Strategies
In traditional, legacy remote work environments, it is more of an “either or” choice, when it comes to remote work or work from the office. The present circumstances however necessitate a hybrid work environment, which requires flexible endpoint device strategies.
At times, an employee might prefer to use a personal device while working from home. When working from the office, on a few select days, the employee might prefer to use an official endpoint device to access the DaaS environment.
Versatile solutions like DaaS enable enterprises to adopt flexible endpoint strategies, which can simultaneously support work from home, work from office, or a hybrid work model that is a combination of both.
Support for BYOD Initiatives
In a bid to simplify in-house IT operations and scale down large IT teams, enterprises are increasingly turning to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. However, this is only possible in an environment of trust and assurance, and DaaS delivers on this count.
Leading DaaS providers like dinCloud, as ATSG company, make the implementation of BYOD policies a seamless affair. Such initiatives become so easy with solutions like DaaS, because no sensitive data or processes are stored over the personal devices of employees.
Broad Support for Devices
One of the major benefits of solutions like DaaS is a broad support that is available for a wide array of devices. With DaaS, employees will be able to access enterprise resources from smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktop computers.
This broad based support for such a wide range of devices, regardless of which operating system (OS) they run, is proving a major factor behind the relentless demand for DaaS solutions on a global scale.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) providers like dinCloud are proving a great enabler for enterprises globally to adopt efficient hybrid workforce strategies. This comes due to the security, flexibility and reliability that are the hallmarks of a high quality DaaS solution.
The factors that we have listed above will continue to fuel the growth of DaaS solutions globally. As enterprises brace for hybrid work strategies, agile solutions like DaaS will make this seemingly difficult task a whole lot easier for them.
