          Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

          Desktop as a Service - DaaS

          Rethinking the Delivery of End User Computing

          Many organizations have historically used a combination of stand-alone initiatives, such as a VPN and core desktop, to extend employee mobility. But all of these technologies are individually managed, budgeted for, and present silos of technology for IT to manage. Many organizations want to aggregate these technologies into one efficient desktop delivery solution.

          Additionally, many organizations have highly distributed workforces that work in smaller, geographically distributed branch offices. These locations need desktops, but the locations are too small to justify on-site IT. This pushes some organizations to hire a managed service to support those locations. But organizations find inconsistencies in the level of service each office receives.

          Many organizations are also supporting international workforces, and their offshore teams are dealing with sensitive intellectual property or personal information. Yet they are leveraging third-party back-office offshore IT solutions and are uncomfortable with that type of data to traversing IT systems overseas. Additionally, traveling with data on devices internationally presents some organizations with significant security concerns. They worry if an employee's devices are compromised or if they lose a device, they will also risk the loss of their intellectual property.

          Take the Cost and Complexity Out of Managing Your Virtual Desktops

          Virtual desktop technology can address many of the aforementioned concerns. In a virtual desktop infrastructure, organizations are never sending their data outside of the data center, and data is never saved locally to devices that can be lost, stolen, or compromised. Information is displayed as pixels on a screen. And if a desktop is hosted in the data center and there is a failure on that device, employees can still be productive by accessing their virtual desktop from another device and pick right up where they left off.

          However, virtual desktop can be complex to deploy and present an IT organization with a lot of up-front costs to build out the infrastructure. One of the reasons that this cost is hard to justify is that the success of the project is dependent upon user acceptance of the technology. And the adoption and acceptance of this solution is very individual and personal to an employee. If they move from one environment with a certain responsiveness and flow and then move to another that does not work as well, employees may express frustration. This makes such a large investment risky for an IT department. And if it doesn't go well, it’s difficult to redeploy such a highly specialized technology for another purpose.
