Blog: 3 points IT Managers need to consider when choosing a VDI solution.

As traditional 9-5 working practices begin to soften, a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution offers employees increased flexibility to work wherever and whenever by giving access to critical business applications from pretty much any device.

It also allows IT departments to gain tighter control over security and helps simplify management as IT Managers can centrally install, secure and upgrade all user applications and desktops from a single, central point.

Whichever VDI solution you decide to opt for you need to consider the following:

1) Is it secure and how will it enhance security?
2) Is it scalable and will it be simple and cost effective to add uses as my business grows?
3) Finally and most importantly; usability. Which solution will give my employees the best user experience?

— all of these matter when choosing the correct VDI solution for your business.
