Managing Apps in a Hybrid Cloud VDI and DaaS World


Coming Soon


Thu, September 21, 2023


5:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST

Desktop virtualization – including VDI and DaaS – has gained traction in recent years as a strategy for managing the movement of mission-critical applications to the cloud. The global pandemic turbo-charged demand for this approach to providing the shelter-in-place workforce with access to crucial enterprise resources.

As the shift to hybrid work models becomes the rule rather than the exception and technology modernization initiatives continue shifting mission-critical workloads across an intricate array of on-prem and cloud-based resources, desktop virtualization strategies are projected to rise significantly. According to one estimate, the global market for desktop virtualization will double from $13.2 billion in 2022 to $26.2 billion by the end of the decade.
