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.”
As we’ve written before, more businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on cloud services for their key operations. On average, many organizations use around four separate cloud services like email, backup, file-sharing and CRM. These features can increase efficiency and take the headache out of having in-house IT managing applications internally. But enterprises are constantly looking for more consolidation — with 56 percent of organizations saying they would prefer a single source for their hosted IT.
This is where Desktop-as-a-Service, like what ColoSpace offers comes in. DaaS combines desktop, applications, data and IT services into a single cloud solution, enabling users to access all of their apps and data — cloud or local — from a hosted desktop on any device — Windows, Mac, tablet or smartphone — from any location.
Configure once, manage centrally, deploy globally!
As a way to radically transform your IT operations, Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) can add value and efficiency to your company. Simply put, DaaS is a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) offered and hosted on the backend by a third-party cloud service provider. This means that the desktop resides on an offsite server maintained and updated by the cloud service provider and can be made accessible from anywhere on any device. They are sometimes referred to as “hosted desktop services.”
