This significant growth can also be attributed to advances in the infrastructure and the migration to the cloud and as-a-service economy. As more and more businesses realize the benefits of cloud solutions, benefits such as agility, flexibility, scale and cost reductions, this number will continue to grow at this massive rate. Let’s take a look back at some of the biggest stories in the Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) industry for 2018.
