Has VDI Peaked? A Change in the Adoption Drivers Sheds New Light, and New Life | Forrester Blogs was cited in a recent tech online pub article. Reading the article and being in the space I am in (DaaS) got me to worrying…it was the first negative thing I had seen on the future of DaaS.
Luckily, I was pointed to the actual blog being cited and read:
“This is why I’m so excited about the explosive trend of BYOD and consumerization of IT on so many levels, from cloud computing to tablets…It’s also why I think we’ll see a rebound of Hosted Virtual Desktops (also known as VDI) through 2013 and beyond.”
So, going from “sad to glad” is the only way I can describe my feelings after this exercise. DaaS just makes too much sense for it to not accelerate as the next generation in VDI. Innovators in corporate IT moved away from internally supporting desktops years ago. Why would those same innovators now want to bring those non-strategic costs back in house?
