It’s easy to find ourselves curious about all the new technologies that come up on a monthly basis. Especially those that promise a lot of things that can benefit our business. After all, that’s what we are looking for as owners, tools that can help take our business to the next level.
But it also pays to be cautious when dealing with such things. Just because other people say its good does not mean it is perfect for you. Each business has its own needs and how a tool can help you depends a lot on these needs.
Just take cloud desktops for example. Some 3 years ago, it was hailed to be the future of business but the adoption was slow. A lot of businesses didn’t buy into the hype right away while others waited for the first adopters to take it out for a spin first. Nowadays, businesses are lining up to get their desktops on the cloud.
Does this mean cloud desktop technology will help your business? Not necessarily.
In this article, we will be talking about what cloud desktop technology is and whether your business can gain benefits from adopting it. Let’s start?
In any modern business, an employee’s workstation or desktop becomes their fortress. It’s where they work on a daily basis and it, to a certain extent, becomes an extension of themselves. By giving your employees their own workstations you are basically giving them an area they can control where they can set it up the way they want to be to be productive.
The only problem with this is that all the customization, personalization, and files within that desktop are stored on a hard drive. That means this fortress, this familiar area of productivity is stuck in a specific workstation in the office. This can pose a number of problems:
But what if all these things can be solved just one by one small change. That instead of putting all the settings, OS, and files on your hard drive, you bring it to the cloud. By taking it to the cloud, you can have access to it anywhere at any time as long as you have an Internet connection.
This is how cloud desktops work.
In a nutshell, a cloud desktop is a “desktop” that is uploaded to the cloud. A user may have access to their cloud desktop using any device like a smartphone, tablet, or laptop as long as they are connected to the Internet.
This is a question that a lot of business owners have on their minds right now. Sure, it’s cool to have everything you need to work on the cloud but does your business really need it? Of course, it’s not really smart to implement a technology out of vanity and not out of necessity, right?
So let’s try to create a checklist that can help you determine if your business does need cloud desktop technology.
