IT departments are constantly in a bind trying to balance a seamless end-user experience with low operational costs and powerful security while ensuring everything is always on. Stuck on time-consuming processes such as software updates and endpoint management, businesses suffer the loss of focusing on innovation and projecting the company forward.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is devised to help midsize and enterprise organizations free up the workload of IT teams with a pay-as-you-go subscription model. Citrix® Managed Desktop is a DaaS solution offering a simple and fast way to deliver Windows® applications and desktops from Microsoft® Azure® for workers to have instant access to their data and apps.
Here are the different ways desktop as a service helps businesses take the complexity out of IT:
During peak seasons, Citrix Managed Desktops makes it possible to provide Windows apps and desktops to temporary employees without the lengthy provisioning cycle. After the contract has ended, instantly shut down the desktops not in use to guarantee that you’re not paying for more than what’s necessary.
When employees demand the flexibility to work remotely, confidently give them the tools and access they need from any device, whether it’s iOS® or Android, laptop or desktop. Equipped with Citrix’s High Definition Experience™ (HDX) technology, communication and graphics will run smoothly within the native environment.
Subscription-based DaaS enables your business to continue running 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year as it relieves your business from heavy capital expenses. In the event of a major disruption or an influx in remote employees, IT can quickly deploy and decommission desktops as needed for the time being.
Just merged with or acquired a new business? Successfully onboard large numbers of employees in a day through a single interface that eliminates the complexity of setting up local IT resources. Within the first day of acquisition, both organizations have equal access to shared company resources.
The risk of malware and losing a device is still as prevalent as before ― if not more. With Citrix Managed Desktops, critical business data and information are stored in the cloud rather than the actual hardware to protect your business from compromise.
