Desktop as a service (DaaS) is the way to go….embrace it


As desktop as a service (DaaS) matures, why should—or shouldn’t—organizations move to cloud-hosted desktops? DaaS makes it easier to provision virtual desktops, simplifies management tasks and allows users to work from wherever they happen to be. Still, hosting desktops in the cloud may not yield the cost savings an organization anticipates, and adopters will want to fully understand the implications DaaS has for licensing, security, and latency. I advise IT decision-makers to realistically assess the viability of a DaaS initiative, and how DaaS differs from other forms of virtual desktop infrastructure and from Windows as a service.
