Getting to a State of OPEX: 3 Pillars of DaaS Success

Organizations are turning to applications and desktops being delivered as a service to better leverage infrastructure and cloud resources, and to redistribute budget from CapEx to OpEx. But it's not always that easy.

To properly do DaaS (desktops-as-a-service) for hundreds or thousands of users, organizations must look beyond the simple desktop hosting and protocol discussion. A user's need is simple: access to their apps and data, efficiently. The IT objective is more difficult: maintain the solution and enable the business.

There are three critical areas that make or break a DaaS implementation. In this webinar, we'll discuss:

  • User Data and Experience: provide a simple yet powerful experience and secure access to user data.
  • Architecture: get the right mix of on-prem, cloud, and hybrid to create the most flexible cloud consumption model.
  • AppOps: manage apps more easily in the cloud, on-premises, and hybrid!

Hear from IT Pro and Citrix on what it takes to make a successful DaaS implementation.
