The Importance of DaaS In Today’s Workplace
The way we live and work is changing rapidly, driven by an influx of Millennials entering the job market. As of 2015, Millennials represented the largest generation currently in the U.S. workforce, and their expectations about what a workplace can be — alongside evolving technology — have led to a radical shift in work flexibility. And the one tool that is poised to make the job of the future a reality is desktop as a service (DaaS).
“DaaS provides streamlined, cloud-based access to operationally-vital applications from anywhere, on any machine.”
Work from anywhere
DaaS provides streamlined, cloud-based access to operationally-vital applications from anywhere, on any machine. Regardless of if you are operating on the most up-to-date, cutting-edge hardware, DaaS allows users to experience their desktop without being tied to proprietary, on-site hardware.
This means that, rather than being trapped in a cubical, employees have the capability to work from wherever they choose and their experience won’t change. This makes it perfect for companies with a global workforce, work from home policies, remote workspaces or simply employees who favor using their personal devices rather than a designated PC.
Lower installation and maintenance costs
With this de-centralization comes additional benefits: since DaaS requires no specific hardware, a company can eliminate many costly installation fees or constant upgrades. This can dramatically reduce operational costs associated with manual upgrades. And with the managed services built into many DaaS solutions, IT professionals are freed from many of the time-consuming, repetitive tasks that have been the core of business as usual in the pre-DaaS world.
