Making Virtual Teams Work. Desktop Virtualization Races Ahead in the Pandemic With a 17.1% Spike in Demand

The global market for Desktop Virtualization is expected to spike by 17.1% in response to the ongoing mass exodus to work-from-home models. The market will continue to grow and reach US$ 20.8 billion by the year 2027, trailing a post COVID-19 CAGR of 10.1% over the analysis period 2020 through 2027. IT & internet along with their entire ecosystem are witnessing a revolutionizing impact as the COVID-19 pandemic changes human relationship with technology. Internet and its allied technologies are witnessing growth and newfound importance as they become critical vehicles to not just fight the pandemic but also survive its impact. Businesses are migrating online to ensure business continuity amid unprecedented times that have separated employees from their workplaces. Working from home (WFH) once a luxury available only to a small percentage of knowledge workers is today the norm the world over. Over the last 7 months, 90% of IT companies worldwide migrated their employees to work-from-home (WFH) during the pandemic. 92% of teams in Asia-Pacific have implemented WFH since the outbreak highlighting the need to flatten the curve in countries with less than adequate healthcare resources. 45% of employees cite COVID-19 as the trigger for rapid adoption of remote working strategies. 72% of companies plan to shift a portion of their staff permanently to a WFH model. As the dust from the COVID-19 crisis settles, a sizable percentage of workforce will be permanently migrated to WFM employment models. Globally, over 35% to 45% of the workforce will be WFM multiple-days-a-week by 2021.

Work flexibility is becoming a competitive feature among organizations. In addition, larger organizations generally operate from multiple office locations and employee departments abroad. A perfect partner for remote working, desktop virtualization delivers secure, agile, easy-to-manage, full-fidelity desktop experiences to users anywhere in the world on any device. Hence, for the foreseeable future beyond the COVID-19 era, desktop virtualization technology will coexist alongside other virtualization technologies in most IT environments in order to support ever-changing workload dynamics effectively. Desktop virtualization refers to a virtualization technology that, by hosting desktops in remotely located servers, separates desktop environments, together with related application software, from physical devices of customers. The technology is implemented for simulating workstation environments and accessing desktop computers with the help of a remotely or locally present connected device. Desktop virtualization complements antiviruses, firewalls and perimeter monitoring solutions and provides additional security through policy-based access control, built-in data compliance, and resource centralization.

While server virtualization is being widely adopted by various organizations for consolidating servers and increasing deployment speeds, desktop virtualization minimizes the complexity involved in deployment, as well as in maintenance of devices, which enables lowering of desktop maintenance costs by the information technology (IT) departments. Desktop virtualization technologies are being increasingly adopted by enterprises forming part of IT and telecom industries for reducing IT infrastructure costs, and increasing deployment speeds. Additionally, the desktop virtualization technology is also being rapidly adopted by data centers and business processing enterprises. Desktop virtualization commonly involves several applications, including Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). The improved customization options, together with separate storage usability and personalized access to desktops, associated with sustained desktop virtualization make the technology highly demanding in comparison to its counterparts. Virtual desktops are generally accessed with the help of the client software installed on the endpoint itself, which helps the users in interacting and providing input with the help of various peripheral devices, including a keyboard, local mouse, and touch screen, among others. As a result, not only is the overall computing burden on local users minimized, the process also assists in enhancing both efficiency and security of the performed tasks. Consequently, virtual desktops are used extensively in various applications across a wide range of industries, including banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), education, health care, IT, and telecommunication.
