DaaS for the Future Workplace

The new-age workplaces are evolving rapidly to meet the diverse needs of the always-connected workforce. Today’s workforce prefers workplace that offers collaboration, promotes knowledge distribution, and empowers them by delivering the freedom to work from any location, at any time and on any device of their choice.

Industry reports estimate that millennials are expected to account for 50% of the workforce by 2022. Ultimate flexibility and interoperability in EUC (End-User Computing) are the primary driving forces for this new-age generation. The paradigm shift in user demand is led by increasing mobility, extensive device proliferation, enhanced end-point security, and enterprise-grade Windows 10 OS deployment and migration. As the adoption of innovative cloud-based services accelerate, the digital workplace will see a complete transformation of the EUC architecture to securely and seamlessly deliver applications and data to end-users while ensuring an enhanced end-user experience.

Enter DaaS- a peek into the next-gen workplace

With the rapid influx of advanced devices, there is an urgent need to bring more uniformity across multiple devices in the connected world. On-the-go employees and remote businesses need 24×7 access to enterprise applications across operating systems as they prefer to use their own devices that provides them faster accessibility and reliability, specifically with the emerging trend of BYOD (Bring your own devices) adoption.

DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service) is a cloud offering, tailored for remote accessibility, security, and adaptability, thereby meeting the ever-growing demands of the mobile workforce.

  • Daas helps deliver a thin client to the user screens with remarkable agility and lower costs- simultaneously. It prevents download or sharing of data on any device thereby enhancing information safety significantly, making it a best match for enterprise IT in delivering secure access to data and applications.
  • DaaS is OPEX-inclined and not CAPEX-based, making it an apt solution for enterprises that have not invested in capital intensive data centers, or wanting to move some of their workloads to Cloud from their data center and SMEs thriving in today’s fast-changing ecosystems. DaaS allows enterprises to forecast and manage their user-defined budget better, while preserving the high-performance capabilities of their solutions.
  • DaaS requires on demand-investment, thus, the pay-as-you-use model helps tackle the scalability challenges without any major disruption.
  • DaaS providers usually deliver services across vast regions. Due to its anywhere, anytime model, employees can work from the comfort of their homes or shared workplaces too. In addition, the backup and disaster recovery attributes help maintain the workflow even during natural calamities, providing a much-needed boost to business continuity.

Thus, DaaS takes the guesswork out of complex deployments and enables easy management of the resources on the cloud. This frees-up the company’s tech-savvy IT staff to utilize their expertise on customer-driven goals, rather than worrying about the underlying IT Infrastructure. Delivered as a centralized model, DaaS takes away the pain in golden image management, regular antivirus updates, troubleshooting, application configuration, and patch updates as these are executed directly on Cloud with zero business disruption for end-users thereby driving efficiency and enhancing productivity. DaaS helps enterprises accelerate the transformation of a digital workplace in a cost-effective and secure way.

Digital workplaces have evolved comprehensively in the recent years. By incorporating the latest tools and technology, digital workplaces prioritize on employee engagement, technical exposure, and enhanced interaction in a timely manner. Being edge-focused with device and location independent capabilities, DaaS provides a seamless transition and delivers turnkey virtualized desktops in a minimal footprint. The adoption of DaaS ensures a highly responsive work ecosystem that empowers end-users by delivering enterprise applications across devices anytime and with the same experience as within the enterprise perimeter.
