Modern information and communication technologies have made the world shrink to a global village. This in turn has enabled organizations to expand their operations to geographically dispersed locations which was not possible before.
As organizations expand either within their own geographical area or beyond, their computing and productivity needs rapidly change. To support a large, diverse workforce across various locations, you need a versatile technology platform.
To top that all off, the trend of remote workforce is increasing with every passing day. Most IT experts believe this trend to gain even more momentum in the months and years to come. Now, an internal network at the organizational level is no more adequate.
Modern Workforce Needs
The needs of the modern workforce, whether in the field of IT or otherwise, are quite versatile. They demand an environment whereby they can remain productive from virtually any location, whether it’s the office, home or anywhere else.
Now, while this scenario sounds great in the specific context of productivity, it gives rise to a number of technological and data security challenges.
In this post, we will highlight how Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS) are the answer.
Key Stats about VDI and DaaS
While both these technologies are well afar from attaining their truly deserved potential, the stats around their growth are still quite encouraging.
To further supplement the above figure, the size of VDI and DaaS software market stood at $5 BN for the same year. Spending on VDI and DaaS technologies is growing at an annual rate of 11%, which outpaces overall IT spending by a large margin.
What these above stats around VDI and DaaS technologies suggest is that organizations are rapidly realizing the inherent benefits of both these Virtual Desktop (VD) deployment technologies. Both VDI and DaaS still hold immense growth potential, here’s why
