2015 State of the Desktop Survey - cover

2015 State of the Desktop Survey

Specifically we looked at:

  • Types of desktops being utilized
  • Knowledge levels of various virtual desktop technologies
  • Devices being used to access virtual desktops
  • Desktop budgets
  • IT staff time spent handling desktop issues
  • Benefits of virtual desktops


They say you need to like the people you work with because you spend more time with them than with your own family each week. It’s just as important to like the technology you are working with each day, most importantly for of ce workers, your desktop. And, if you ever need to work remotely or from the road, your mobility-enabling technology is just as important. Since virtual desktops hit the market, they have followed what Gartner refers to as the typical “technology hype cycle,” presently placed hosted virtual desktops on the “Slope of Enlightenment.”**

As we see that hosted virtual desktop solutions – i.e., Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) delivered as a service – are ascending the “slope of enlightenment,” we determined it to be the ideal time to implement our 2015 State of the Desktop Survey with 1,031 executives and IT professionals.

Evolve IP’s 2015 State of the Desktop Survey examined the types of desktops being used today and the levels of awareness and adoption of virtual desktops in North American organizations.
