Today's workforce is working seasonally, remotely, and moving from one contract to the next. They're working across borders, time zones, and organizations. However, traditional desktop solutions such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) can't scale to a dynamic workforce. VDI requires complicated capacity planning, upfront capital expenditure for hardware and licensing, and months, if not years, to build out infrastructure.
The DaaS offering has been around for a while and has had several takers. Earlier adoption of DaaS was driven by a few selective business needs like travel users/ Sales / field staff etc. Post COVID-19, DaaS became a necessity for BAU. The requirement definition of DaaS has now placed an additional ask on security and identity management. For any business, minimizing business disruption and ensuring employee safety are top priorities during unpredictable incidents.
It is wise to build an on-demand infrastructure for your workforce hosted in the cloud, along with the required data security, industry compliance, and high availability.
