This solution can be used to advantage in scenarios like outsourcing work to contractors, remote working and “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD). All the necessary software applications can be provided to the employees with ease. Once the user has logged into their Cloud Desktop they can access their very own operating system, software applications and files directly from within the browser. This eliminates the need for setting up remote access systems as well as syncing and pairing multiple devices.
“More and more applications are moving into the Cloud and this trend gives companies the freedom of shifting their processes into the Cloud and accessing services from anywhere,” explains Marcel Maron, Mikogo’s IT Operations Manager and pioneer behind the Cloud Desktop. “The advantages of Cloud services are accessibility and reliability because the services are managed by professional service providers, not the end-user. Operating systems, however, are presently still managed by the end-user leaving them to deal with constant updates, maintenance, performance issues, etc.”
While using this solution, the version compatibility of operating systems is not an issue. You can open your Windows 8 Cloud Desktop on a Windows XP computer, a Mac Notebook, an iPad, or any other device. All you need is a device with internet accessibility.

The company claims that more than 3,000 corporate customers are using the Mikogo technology and benefiting from significantly reduced travel time and travel expenses.
