Worth The Hype?

Everyone wants to anticipate the next big service to fall from the cloud.

The folks at the Citrix Service Provider Center of Excellence asked their 2,000 plus partners about the future of DaaS. Some 718 service providers from 25 countries weighed in on the emerging, hosted desktop market.

Their answers, compiled by Citrix, shed light on how managed services providers see the market evolving through their own revenue and growth projections and customer characteristics.

The survey offers insight into a sector of the global cloud market that lacks significant research. While there's plenty of hype, Citrix noted that limited information on real virtual desktop trends creates "a difficult dilemma" for MSPs considering adding the offering.
