A far as a year goes, 2020 was…well…let’s just say memorable. It was also notable. It was notable not only because of everything happening in the world, but because for the first time ever, a large scale remote work experiment was done. And the results were pretty telling. End user computing has a major role to play in the future. In light of this, here are three trends to expect in 2021.
Increased Adoption of DaaS
Pre-pandemic, the outlook for DaaS adoption looked good. Post pandemic, it seems vital. DaaS has enabled a reliable, scalable way for enterprises and organizations to deal with the uncertain. Additionally, DaaS has been further established now not only by EUC leaders Citrix and VMware but by Microsoft. Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop has made waves this year as one of the best ways to consume Windows 10 in the Cloud. Of course, Stratodesk supports the WVD Linux client. Now NoTouch users can access their Windows 10 sessions in the Cloud from anywhere in the world. The many benefits of DaaS accelerated by major players delivering powerful solutions has been the story of 2020. 2021 will see that demand soar.
Device Form Factors Will Continue to Evolve
Over the past several years, device expectations have continued to diverge. New work trends have accelerated the need for IT to provide access to apps and data on an increased variety of devices. This means anything and everything from the most powerful, cutting edge PCs to the most basic, yet versatile Raspberry Pi based device. As enterprises turn to the Cloud, end users – workers, contractors and agents – will turn to devices of all kinds in order to get their jobs done. This is one of the reason that NoTouch software works with any device – x86 or ARM – on the market.
Work From Home Becomes a Mainstay
Nobody saw it coming. In 2020, work from home became the norm. It has been clear for sometime that flexible work – including remote work – was becoming more and more widespread. Due to the pandemic, however, enterprises in droves turned towards remote work. In the process, many enterprises and organizations now have the technical capacity to continue productive remote working. For this reason, as we move into 2021 with no end to the current crisis situation in sight, enterprises will begin to embrace work from home as a way of life, not just a temporary solution.
What’s more, as the joblessness situation stabilizes, employers will need to make remote work effective and productive in order to compete for the best talent. In fact, many leading companies are already going to work from home forever models.
