For several years now, customers have approached digital transformation at their own pace. Although the benefits of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) are undeniable, for many customers the old way of doing things was often good enough, making digital transformation something they could take their time with.

 

But now, the global COVID-19 pandemic has thrown into sharp relief the need for a digitally transformed workplace. Remote working, resilience, and business continuity issues aren’t just the key to success, but the key to survival.

 

As a result, enterprises are asking IT to rapidly adapt and transform operations to support digital workplace transformation initiatives, all without compromising risk or exceeding the budget. No pressure!

From crisis comes opportunity

According to a recent Gartner survey, 74% of CFOs intend to shift some employees to remote work permanently, and in-person enterprise meetings are expected to drop from 60% to 25% by 2024. As a result, the global end-user computing market is expected to grow from $6.11 billion to $11.17 billion by 2023.

 

Enterprises are reevaluating their IT infrastructure management, operations, and approach to automation, and they’re also trying to accelerate their use of managed and cloud services. They need the ability to quickly change and adapt to an unpredictable world while serving their dispersed workforces and customers.
