For over three decades, the desktop PC was a dominant feature in the corporate technology landscape. Over the last ten years, everything has changed. Starting first with laptops, now with tablets, smartphones, thin clients and zero clients, the range of endpoint devices has exploded in the workplace. The rise of mobility, fueled by a growing mobile workforce and the shift to an always-connected employee, paired with high costs of maintenance for desktop computing, means that the traditional PC is on its way out.


The Growth of Mobility

IDC estimates that the US mobile worker population will grow steadily over the next five years, increasing from 96.2 million in 2015 to 105.4 million in 2020, accounting for nearly three quarters of the total US workforce. Driving this shift is the increased affordability and use of smartphones and tablets and the productivity these devices bring both inside and outside the workplace. Part way through 2015, the number of mobile-only Internet users began to exceed desktop-only Internet users, showing the shifting digital population.

As employees grow accustomed to the convenience of mobile devices of all kinds, and the supporting technologies become more powerful, we are seeing more and more organizations wanting to move away from desktops altogether. Desktops may be inexpensive to purchase, but they come with a high IT cost related to broken machines, ongoing OS and software updates, and diverse issues in data security. Switching to laptops or tablets presents many of the same issues, only multiplied. Thanks to BYOD, organizations now face many device types, often 3 or more per employee, some corporate-owned, some employee-owned, and all an IT nightmare to manage and secure.

Mobile Workstations

Facilitating Mobility Demands Through Virtualization

Centralized computing and virtual desktops offer an alternative to traditional computing, one which solves many of the management and security issues inherent in desktop computing and mobility. Enterprise mobility, BYOD and increased workplace collaboration are all inevitable trends. Our PCoIP technology for virtual workspaces reduces the cost and complexity of these innovations, while maintaining enterprise-grade security and availability.

With individual ‘desktops’ in your data center or in the cloud, end-users simply access their desktop remotely through a client device (repurposed PC, laptops, tablets and more), thin device or zero client. The PCoIP protocol compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the datacenter or in the cloud and transmits it ‘pixels only’ across a standard IP network. It provides an uncompromised user experience from anywhere, over any network and any type of device, and removes many of the security risks associated with remote data storage on PCs, laptops and tablets. 

  


The protocol that changed how enterprise mobilizes their teams is now available to the world in... The Teradici Pervasive Computing Platform.
 


Teradici PCoIP technology is the fabric of the virtual workspace. We power the spectrum of local, remote, mobile and collaborative workstyles, fundamentally simplifying how computing is provisioned, managed and used.One size does not fit all when it comes to virtualization. Combine secure, easy to manager PCoIP zero clients with a solid BYOD strategy to design a robust VDI solution that works for your organization. 

Users expect to be able to access their virtual workspace from anywhere on any device. Learn more about how Teradici can help your organization move to a virtual desktop environment at Teradici.com
