Today, more & more organizations are moving towards the path of the hybrid work, and they are doing so as a strategic aspect of their business models. In this initiative, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and desktop as a service (DaaS) are providing an option through which organizations can avail streamlined operations, better-than-before security, reduced cost envelop, and scalability.
Today is an era of the hybrid workspace, and the VDI market fuelled by it is growing at an annual rate of nearly 20%, and expected to reach nearly USD 35 billion by 2028. And riding on the same bandwagon, DaaS market is growing at the rate of nearly 17% YoY, and is expected to reach nearly USD 7 billion by 2027.
With the help of VDI and DaaS, companies & their IT teams have managed to get greater control and more structured manageability over the end-users’ environments. If you have the right solution, you can easily do the onboarding and scaling, and it can be much faster and simpler. Also, you will be able to centrally manage security, data protection, and regulatory compliances.
When users work in a hybrid work environment, they have a different set of expectations. There, they are increasingly focused on their own experience. Plus, they also expect high flexibility, high performance, better resiliency, improved collaboration, and higher productivity irrespective of where they are working. Along with this, the IT teams in a hybrid environment, demand simplified manageability and scale. They also want greater control over security and regulatory compliances. And they look for higher return on investment.
