Time to Grow Your Desktop as a Service?

See If It Makes Sense for Your Organization

by Kevin O'Connor | 09.14.16

One of the benefits of a VDI/DaaS for organizations is that data is never saved locally to devices. For mobile devices/laptops that can suddenly turn up missing, information can’t be compromised, because it is only displayed as pixels on a screen. The very nature of remote data/local presentation inherent to VDI/DaaS is especially valuable if there is a failure to a desktop or other device. Because end users can access their virtual desktop from another device, they can be more productive—especially in the architectural and construction field—where mobility can be of significant value.

In fact, 85% of organizations are pursuing a data center modernization strategy.* After all, as the heart of your organization’s operations, that data center—and its ability to support your business needs—informs some of your most important IT investment decisions. But how often do you evaluate the reasons behind those investment decisions? And how do your metrics stack up against your industry peers’ methods?
