7 Habits of Highly Effective DaaS

There really is an end user computing revolution happening. We continue to be impressed by the rate at which Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is gaining ground. Every day we talk to organizations large and small who are ready to simplify datacenter infrastructure, if not eliminate it entirely, and manage their apps and desktops from the cloud.  They realize that now there’s an easier, more affordable way to manage desktops and apps and keep mobile workforces productive.

They hire some consultants to deal with all this complexity and piece it all together and after all that expense they typically deliver their first virtual desktop in 9-12 months. There’s lots to worry about here – upgrades, availability, scalability – everyday, forever.
