Whereas the implementation of VDI and DaaS solutions require multiperson teams, one dedicated employee can oversee and manage virtual application delivery.

"Virtual Application Delivery eliminates the cost and management complexity involved in managing VDI and DaaS, provides a more seamless user experience that doesn't require learning any new behavior, and enables the secure use of business-critical applications on any device - even non-IT managed personal devices," Henshaw said.

"This survey reveals that organizations that have adopted VDI and DaaS systems to support remote workers have encountered major issues — specifically cost, complexity, and security — which may hinder the long-term adoption of those technologies," said Robb Henshaw CMO at Cameyo, a technology vendor and report sponsor.

"Many organizations adopted VDI and DaaS as band-aid fixes for what they originally thought would be a short-term problem of supporting remote work, but now every IT organization is in search of permanent solutions that can support a long-term remote work strategy to ensure that their people don't miss a beat when it comes to productivity, regardless of where they're working from," said Henshaw.
