You can use DaaS implementations for nearly any purpose that you can use a traditional desktop. In addition, these services can provide some additional benefits for the following use cases:
Call-center, part-time, and shift work
—virtual desktops enable organizations to reuse the same client for multiple staff easily. Each staff member can be assigned a desktop and unique login for use during their shift. Then, when the next employee begins work, they can login with their own credentials.
—developers can use virtual desktops to access multiple environments and operating systems from a single client. This can significantly ease development and testing by enabling a developer to switch between desktops quickly.
—in clinics and hospitals, providers often move throughout the facility. Virtual desktops can enable providers to move from patient to patient while maintaining their own desktop session. Virtual desktops can also make it easier to meet HIPAA compliance by eliminating the risk of data breaches caused by stolen devices.University labs—software licenses for educational institutions can be expensive, limiting the number of applications that schools can purchase or provide. Virtual desktops can enable schools to grant many students access to a single installation on an as needed basis.
Seasonal or contract work
— virtual desktop
can eliminate maintenance that can come with temporary workers, such as wiping or reconfiguring workstations. You can create and retire desktops as needed, enabling you to quickly onboard users when needed.
Remote and mobile workers—
since virtual desktops aren’t tied to a single client, you can use DaaS to enable remote or mobile work. Additionally, your IT team's desktops are fully managed, reducing concerns about managing personal or mobile devices.
Mergers and acquisitions
—DaaS enables you to add more workers at scale without acquiring new hardware. For example, if you merge with an existing company that already has hardware, you can deploy your own desktops without having to reconfigure clients manually.
