Organisations around the world are gaining valuable insight into not only the potential benefits of cloud computing, but also the practical challenges of adopting these technologies. Below are a number of forecasts that were made by some of the world’s leading analysts:
The hosted desktop has not yet become ubiquitous, but there are thousands of companies using and enjoying the benefits of hosted desktop services, who would never go back to the traditional model. There is an ever growing market for these services and while initial industry predictions were over-optimistic, in both scale and time frame, the reality is that more and more businesses are moving to the hosted desktop model.
Mobile working and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are growing trends amongst businesses, but their arrival is increasing the pressure on IT Managers to successfully facilitate these methods of working. Heightened security concerns and a changing threat landscape, coupled with the more complex management of mobile devices are combining to create a real headache for those handling IT infrastructure. This is all an addition to maintaining and managing the traditional desktop estate.
Hosted Desktops present a very compelling solution, almost a miracle cure to these issues, as it allows all users to experience the same centrally controlled desktop environment.
Working with a strategic partner who brings knowledge, expertise and economies of scale means the true potential of hosted desktops is much easier to achieve. As a service you only need to commit opex budget for the number of users you need, with re-assurance you have the ability to scale as you grow. You also reap the benefits of a service that is quick to deploy, low risk, secure and uses proven high performance infrastructure designed to guarantee your users the best experience possible.
So your customers achieve the end client benefits of increased security, flexibility, simple maintenance, support of BYOD, improved business continuity and reduced costs.
