In a recent conversation with one of the end-user device (EUD) industry’s leading analysts, he quipped, "After the apocalypse, three things will still be around: cockroaches, Twinkies and legacy Windows apps."

If there's one thing that's clear, it's that there isn't much clarity on the definition of "Digital Workspaces." To some, that means providing a full virtual desktop to every user. Here at Cameyo, our focus when it comes to providing a Digital Workspace is to make sure everyone has access to all of the apps they need to be productive from anywhere, on any device.
But to clarify - that doesn't...
Your organization, like many, has no doubt undergone a tremendous change in the way employees carry out their daily tasks since the beginning of the year. As the shift for the majority has been to a remote workforce, organizations have had to adapt to the needs at hand due to COVID-19.
As companies take action to protect their workers from the coronavirus outbreak, many have enacted work from home policies to help prevent the possible spread.

As cloud-based solutions and user mobility become more mainstream, there's a lot of buzz surrounding virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments like Citrix and Desktop as a Service (DaaS) products like VMware and Windows Virtual Desktop. And for some organizations that are looking to deliver virtual desktops to their end users, large-scale VDI or DaaS products like these may make sense.
What’s more important - security or user experience? It’s a trick question, of course - especially when talking about virtual application delivery. If a virtual application delivery product isn’t secure, that’s an obvious non-starter. And if the user experience isn’t great, then your people won’t use it. Or worse, they’ll find some shadow IT workaround.
Every IT admin knows that if they aren’t able to provide their people with a good user experience, then those people are going to point the finger right back at IT and blame them for that poor experience. One area where this finger-pointing is notoriously prevalent occurs during the use of virtual desktops to enable virtual application delivery.
