Enterprises are thoroughly reviewing their IT infrastructures in a bid to prepare for the new normal. Remote work or Work from Home (WFH) is an integral part of this new normal and businesses need to re-align their IT infrastructures accordingly.

According to a recent study conducted on the impact of Covid-19, it was revealed that the overwhelming majority of respondents went for desktop virtualization. This trend has accelerated growth of the desktop virtualization market globally.

The study has forecast that desktop virtualization in retail will exhibit a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 58% between the years 2021 and 2026. To virtualize desktops, enterprises have a choice to build the infrastructure on premise or go for DaaS.

Desktop as a Service or DaaS is a desktop virtualization technology in which the deploying entity engages a third party Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud. This outsourced model for desktop virtualization offers many additional benefits for enterprises.

In the DaaS model of virtualized desktops, enterprises are able to sustain a fully remote workforce. This aspect of DaaS has proved extremely valuable for enterprises, both in the short as well as long term.

If we analyze the various sectors individually, the strongest growth in desktop virtualization is expected in the retail industry, whose CAGR is expected to touch 58% during the years 2021 and 2026.

Virtualized Desktops give remote employees seamless access to enterprise data and productivity apps. In the retail sector, there is a major change in consumer behavior. Things are increasingly moving towards contactless retail transactions.

DaaS enables your remote employees to establish and maintain interface with a customer at every vital stage of the transaction. Enterprises going for the DaaS model of desktop virtualization have a lot of choice in terms of service providers as well.

Towards the end, the report highlights the importance of the capability and capacity of the DaaS provider. It is also imperative that desktop virtualization improves the overall end user experience (UX), which in this case are the remote employees.
