Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) are attractive alternatives to traditional thick client devices, particularly in today’s rapidly changing work environment. Although these technologies offer many of the same benefits, they are not interchangeable.

In this live webinar, we’ll break down what DaaS and VDI are all about, looking at how they work and the pros and cons of each.

By the end of this live session, you'll have a clearer picture of how DaaS and VDI could help you achieve your business goals.

In the first part of this webinar, we'll weigh the short-term and long-term benefits and drawbacks of each desktop virtualization strategy, so you can make a well-informed decision about which one is the best fit for your company.

In the second half, we’ll examine the current state of the industry, the biggest challenges of DaaS, the solutions your peers have chosen, and how DaaS fits into the bigger picture of local, datacenter, and cloud solutions. During this section, we’ll reveal the latest information that’s not yet published from our DaaS Like a Pro research.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to discover how Parallels DaaS can empower your organization with secure remote access to your critical applications and desktops, enhance your ROI, and fuel rapid business growth.
