Why CIOs Are Adopting Virtual Desktops

CIOs and other executives are increasingly turning to virtual desktop deployment primarily to enhance mobility initiatives, according to a recent survey from Evolve IP. The "2015 Evolve IP State of the Desktop" report reveals that technologies such as Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) are increasing efficiencies while saving on costs-in addition to elevating the overall state of information security within the enterprise. As a result, IT departments aren't spending as much time on desktop-associated performance issues. Another benefit: Virtual desktops are emerging as the “go to” means to keep employees working remotely during a major business disruption. "We are seeing serious interest in deploying virtual desktops not only with early adopters, but with well-established, more conservative organizations," said Tim Allen, chief sales officer for Evolve IP. "The demand for a virtual desktop that is accessible 24/7, from any location, on almost any Internet-enabled device is increasing." More than 1,030 IT professionals and executives took part in the research.
