Desktop virtualisation is becoming increasingly important for many organisations allowing companies to provide a simple, secure and cost-effective way to access the applications and resources needed to perform their job function from any device, from any location.
Virtual desktops help reduce the time it takes to provision new desktops with a resultant saving in cost and they also help to decrease desktop management and support costs. And as everything is centrally managed, secured and stored, virtual desktops eliminate the need to install, update, back up files etc. on individual devices. Software is also much easier to manage.
Also, as employees are not holding confidential company information and data on personal devices that could be lost or stolen, there is a significant security dividend.
Productivity is increased by allowing employees to access applications and documents from multiple devices, including other desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smart phones as well as accessing the data they need from literally anywhere. In another building or another continent, a virtualised desktop allows them to be productive in any environment.
