Since 2008 industry experts have been predicting an explosion in desktop virtualisation. To cater for this predicted demand many companies built platforms.
The reality is that the numbers predicted by Gartner – 40% of all corporate desktops virtualised by 2013 – have failed to materialise. Hosted Desktop has not become ubiquitous. But there are thousands of companies using and enjoying the benefits of Hosted Desktop services, who would never go back to the traditional model. There is an ever growing market for these services and while industry predictions were over optimistic, in both scale and time frame, the reality is people are moving to the Hosted Desktop model.
