The new industry research report from Technavio analyzes some of the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

Workplace flexibility and business agility

Business organizations are focusing on smooth workflow systems that reduce time zone barriers and changes in work locations. The VDI environment eliminates the need to manage thousands of individual systems and enables centralized management of resources in enterprise data centers and server rooms. These systems ensure access to official and confidential data through the personal devices of the workforce. They also provide higher flexibility, simplified backup operations, greater security control and compliance, faster problem resolving capabilities, rapid deployment of virtualized desktop, and application on-demand services to any devices.

Improved security

In the VDI infrastructure systems, images are stored and processed through a centralized data center infrastructure environment and end-users can access information through mobile devices and PCs from the server room or data center. Data theft or endpoint data loss can be prevented as the data is not stored on end-user devices and can be secured from threats such as viruses and malware. VDI deployments provide flexibility to organizations that can restrict downloading of data to end-user devices in turn protecting the database from harmful content. It is easier to configure firewall policies and antivirus agents on one master image rather than maintaining antivirus for various systems.

Ease of operating and managing virtual infrastructure

VDI systems enhance user experiences that include benefits like application compatibility and authorization to access to data and applications from any location. The user access is modified through a centralized management software, and additional are deployed to low operational costs and to ensure enhanced scalability. The administrators can remove or change any software based on requirements making the maintenance of these systems easy and allows users the flexibility to reboot systems to restore operations.
