Evolve IP, a provider of services including virtual servers, virtual desktops, disaster recovery, IP phone systems/unified communications, and more, has been included in the 2016 Gartner Market Guide for Desktop as a Service (DaaS).
The Gartner Market Guide, which lists 10 DaaS providers in North America, is intended to provide more understanding of the DaaS market and its offerings.
As part of its broad portfolio of cloud services, Evolve IP DaaS provides desktop users with a virtual workspace, customized with their unique applications and files, that is accessible from virtually any internet connected tablet, phone or computing device.
According to the Gartner report, by 2019, 50% of new virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) users will be deployed on DaaS platforms. Evolve IP’s DaaS offering is part of its wider desktop services offerings that also includes Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM), Mobile Device Management (MDM) and helpdesk.
“We believe the Gartner Market Guide for Desktop as a Service is the latest validation for DaaS and we are pleased to have been included among representative vendors,” said Evolve IP’s Chief Technology and Product Officer and Founding Partner, Scott Kinka. “We have watched as DaaS has gained market traction over the past few years and are not surprised as it delivers a trifecta of organizational benefits. First, user productivity increases due to anytime – anywhere desktop access. Second, IT desktop management is easier – from delivering updates and patches to securing machines. Third, organizational security is enhanced with the ability to easily protect sensitive corporate data regardless of what an employee does with his or her physical devices. As these benefits are realized and market awareness increases we expect to see even greater adoption in 2017.”
Evolve IP provides cloud services in virtually every industry including: healthcare, veterinary medicine, legal, insurance, banking, technology, travel and retail to some of the world’s most recognizable brands. The company’s Evolve IP OneCloud solution would allow organizations to migrate multiple cloud computing and cloud communications services onto a single, unified platform.
