Security and control are big drivers for Chinese customers. They use desktop virtualisation to improve productivity and ensure that all their intellectual property is protected and secured, while keeping an eye on what employees are working on. For example, Huawei's Research & Development staff use thin clients connected to XenDesktop, ensuring that everyone has a consistent workspace.
Indonesia is experiencing strong growth rates in the technical consumer goods market, with sales of smartphones expected to triple in 2012. It is thus no surprise that its enterprise IT strategy is increasingly affected by the consumerisation of IT, and organisations in the country are looking at mobile workstyle strategies such as Bring-Your-Own. There is growing interest among corporations and SMEs looking at desktop virtualisation as an alternative, especially in the finance and energy sector.
As a result of the devastating floods in 2011 and the political crisis earlier in 2010, Thailand's economy came to a standstill, with employees unable to get to work and businesses unable to function. Thai businesses are thus today looking at technologies, infrastructure and systems to help them stay open for business no matter what. Desktop virtualisation has definitely grown to be more attractive as a means to ensure business mobility, agility and continuity.
