Solutions for the Future of Work
Businesses and organizations around the globe are in a state of rapid digital transformation and affordable cloud services are driving this evolution. As organizations adapt and continue to anticipate the future of work, they are realizing that transitioning away from physical desktops and moving to Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is the obvious choice—especially as we face the challenges of the “new normal.”2 In fact, it was reported in 2020, that in North America and Europe, 10% of the IT budget is being spent on virtualization.
Organizations like yours of all sizes and in many geographics and industries are looking for a better way to offer a consistent and secure digital experience to employees that extends beyond the four
walls of a physical location—in the office, on the road or at home. And they do not want to sacrifice a positive employee experience in favor of cost, security, and business continuity. Thankfully, DaaS
delivers a variety of benefits while enhancing user experience and productivity.
What’s more, DaaS allows IT to eliminate the overhead of managing multiple stand-alone PCs, endpoints, and operating systems, as DaaS providers stream consistent but flexible virtual desktops to end-user devices. And DaaS is delivered as a subscription service, allowing businesses to quickly scale as needed.
DaaS is a cloud computing offering that enables organizations to deliver cloud-hosted virtual desktops to any device, from anywhere. DaaS solutions provide complete hosted desktops for applications and email securely delivered over the web. They are simple to buy and easy to manage, with no software for IT to maintain highly protected.
Remote work means exposing your company’s data to countless security risks. And sometimes workers find themselves outside the protected LAN, where they connect in public areas like coffee shops and airports. DaaS addresses these challenges by shifting the device and security management into an enterprise or cloud data center. This regularly backed up and highly-protected environment is where a DaaS provider loads the software and operating systems the workforce needs to work safely from any location and any device.
When it comes to empowering the workforce, Unified Communications and DaaS go hand-in-hand. The flexibility of DaaS combined with UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) creates a streamlined workspace experience for end-users across organizations. For example, with DaaS and UC solutions, IT or service providers can deploy a virtual desktop with applications for voice, video, mobile, chat, fax, presence management, texting, and more and integrate business applications such as a CRM or ERP. This strategy breaks down silos, drives employee productivity through a more seamless experience, and lowers costs across organizations. And as businesses continue to digitally transform, they are poised to stay ahead of the curve and remain relevant in today’s competitive landscape.
Your employees are the lifeblood of your business or organization. This is why it is so important to provide digital solutions that allow your teams to focus on their work, not the technology behind it. With DaaS, your business can get ahead of disasters and cyberattacks while unlocking productivity or end-users and improving your bottom line. And for the mobile and remote workforce, DaaS can be a game-changer as it allows anytime, anywhere access. It is a win-win for all.
