Gartner’s 2018 Market Guide for Desktop as a Service

In this Market Guide, Gartner describes and analyzes the characteristics of the DaaS market, both current state and future direction, as well as provides descriptions of representative vendors that offer DaaS
services to end-user customers.

In addition to a thorough analysis of Evolve IP and multiple other vendors, highlights from the report include:

  • “It has taken longer for larger organizations to adopt DaaS, but Gartner has seen traction increase in midsize enterprises (100 to 1,000 employees), with increasing average user commitments.”*
  • “Compliance coverage varies between providers and is an important differentiator.”*
  • “Select a DaaS provider that can align its offering to your specific technical and business requirements like your preference of broker of cloud provider; do not focus solely on price.”
