nterprise Strategy Group senior analyst Mark Bowker says businesses want a modern and secure desktop, application, and data delivery strategy that reflects the reality of how users work and can keep up with the rapid change of business applications and devices, without amplifying the management and security burden that already weighs heavily on IT shoulders.
DaaS possesses the unique combination of attributes that appeals to businesses across industries: improved time to value, cost reduction, and enhanced security.
DaaS business and technology needs are different for every organisation. Some customers need to balance their existing data centre resources with cloud expansion goals, and others are new to DaaS and embarking on a cloud-first initiative with their hyperscaler of choice.
Helen Kruger, CEO of Troye - a Citrix software vendor - says forward-thinking organisations are already on board and reaping the benefits the solution provides. “DaaS is available in two flavours, Hybrid DaaS and DaaS for Hyperscalers.”
“Hybrid DaaS provides maximum flexibility to manage on-prem and cloud environments together and rapid provisioning, streamlined cloud management, and comprehensive tools to deliver hybrid work solutions. DaaS for Hyperscalers was designed for simplicity, it allows for rapid deployment of apps and desktops on public clouds,” she adds.
Companies have long relied on DaaS to deliver secure remote desktops. In expanding the options for deploying DaaS, companies can accelerate the transition to hybrid work and unlock the benefits it can deliver.
