Research has shown that the typical small- to medium-sized business (SMB) will spend about a fifth of its IT budget on hardware. Besides the obvious expense, this allocation fails to provide any significant competitive advantage for the SMB. Traditional desktops bring unpredictability in terms of cost, use, and uptime while shackling the workforce to physical locations. Desktop as a Service (DaaS), also known as hosted cloud desktop, provides a cost-efficient, more productive alternative to traditional desktop environments. Willow Bend's new e-book explores what DaaS can offer SMBs. Among the guide's features:
- A detailed explanation of what Desktop as a Service is
- The history and evolution of DaaS
- A look at the many benefits of adopting DaaS
- An examination of the ROI that is possible with hosted cloud desktop
- Advice for choosing the right DaaS partner
"DaaS is one of the fastest-growing cloud services delivery models -- a truly beneficial and disruptive technology for today's small businesses," says Shayne Reich, President of Willow Bend Systems. "DaaS allows SMBs to reduce operating costs, enable mobility, utilize the current infrastructure, maintain much more robust backup and disaster recovery systems, and secure data in their infrastructures. Our new guide explores everything businesses should know about Desktop as a Service as they decide if the approach is right for them."
