Is your IT infrastructure keeping pace as your remote workforce grows?
As an IT leader, you must give remote and mobile employees secure access to their apps and desktops. This is a daunting task if you have a small, overworked IT team and work in an organization that is rapidly growing. Here's how Evolve IP's DaaS, powered by Citrix, helps you meet your cloud mandate while saving you countless management hours and headaches.
Simplify your cloud management with DaaS
Organizations are moving to the cloud at a rapid pace to support a growing remote workforce and provide anytime, anywhere access to apps and desktops.
Deploying desktops and apps in the cloud makes business sense, as it:
- Simplifies your deployment of apps and desktops to any device, anywhere
- Eliminates CAPEX, as you pay only for what you use
- Gives you flexibility so that you can support peaks in cloud demand
- Provides business continuity in times of rapid change
- Allows you to quickly scale to support new workers and contractors
- Smooths your transition during a merger or acquisition
- Keeps sensitive data off employees' devices and provides vendors with secure access
However, app and desktop virtualization can create management challenges, especially if your IT team is small and bogged down with other tasks. In fact, 78 percent of enterprises reported that a lack of resources and expertise is a top challenge when adopting the cloud.2 This skills shortage will delay half of enterprise cloud migrations by two years or more.3
Gartner recommends that enterprises use managed services to overcome these challenges.
This white paper introduces managed DaaS. Managed DaaS allows you to quickly provision the virtual apps and desktops users need to stay productive-without doing everything yourself.
Spend less time on VDI deployment and management
The use of VDI is expanding significantly, as 40 percent of organizations have deployed it to improve how they manage and maintain their digital workspaces.4
As many organizations already know, VDI provides total control over your infrastructure, but with this control comes complexity.
Since VDI runs on-premises, you need to manage it yourself. You're responsible for everything from deploying virtual desktops to purchasing, managing, and upgrading your infrastructure. This daily management requirement can lead to some unexpected (and higher than anticipated) costs.
Finally, while VDI is very secure (because vital apps and data are stored centrally vs. on individual devices), organizations might be investigating additional layers of protection to keep their vital assets out of unwanted hands.
DaaS: The new way to improve cloud and IT efficiencies
A growing number of organizations are using DaaS to overcome these challenges.
DaaS is an offering that provides users with an on-demand, virtualized desktop experience delivered from a remotely hosted location. It includes provisioning, patching and maintenance of the management plane and resources to host workloads.
IT organizations that use DaaS report that it allows them to "quickly access desktop resources in a timely and more elastic manner."
With DaaS, you can give users a better experience without purchasing or maintaining hardware. Its pay-asyou-go subscription model makes it easy for you to scale to support your remote workforce, branch offices, and seasonal employees.
And best of all, you don't need to handle it yourself.
A managed DaaS provider can take care of your VDI deployment and ongoing management. However, you stay in complete control, deciding how apps and desktops are deployed and what level of security is integrated.
