Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is a great way for businesses to work faster and smarter, with a flexible, secure hosted desktop. Already, this technology is transforming businesses, allowing them to work from anywhere on any device rather than being tied to a desktop computer in one location. As time goes on, we can only see the technology becoming more popular – and even essential…
According to global management consultancy firm Accenture, we’re moving towards a new ‘post-digital’ era. No, that doesn’t mean companies will revert to non-digital means. Quite the opposite, in fact.
The post-digital era refers to a time where all businesses will be digital by default. Digital will no longer be a selling point, advantage or differential for businesses. Instead, it will be a basic necessity. Any businesses that aren’t digital will simply fail to exist.
With this comes the need for a new edge. Companies still need that something special to set them apart from competitors.
DaaS in the post-digital era
So, how does DaaS fit into this post-digital picture?
In their Technology Vision, Accenture identified a number of key technology trends that will form the foundation for the post-digital era, including:
- Incorporating technology-driven capabilities alongside existing skills and experience
- Putting security at the forefront of the entire business ecosystem
- Meeting customer demand as it arises, with customised experiences
DaaS solutions will be an integral part of these trends. Firstly, it’s flexible, versatile and works to your specifications, helping companies integrate new technology without hindering their existing capabilities.
On top of that, DaaS allows companies to strengthen their security. Data is stored remotely, fully-encrypted and backed-up in multiple data-centres, providing impressive redundancy.
Finally, meeting customer demands. DaaS allows your workforce to operate seamlessly, across different devices in multiple locations, to continually provide the best experiences to clients and customers.
