Desktop as a service (DaaS) enables end-users to move past a typical desktop software such as (VDI, RDSH), to a more flexible and extremely cheaper computing platform. The benefits of desktop-as-a-service (Daas) are enormous but mainly help an organization meet remote employees work needs without sacrificing its bottom line.

How can I successfully implement DaaS?

The good news is, unlike many other decisions that require exclusive in-house consultation, implementing a (DaaS) solution can be done in concert with both in-house and the solution provider’s consultant.
Questions and concerns such as capacity, security, mobility, and others can be best addressed when both the solution provider and prospective customer’s teams work together during the initial planning phase.
