IDC TechScape: Worldwide Virtual Client Computing, 2018

By: Shannon KalvarResearch Manager , IT Service Management and Client Virtualization, Hiroshi ShibutaniSenior Market Analyst, PC, Mobile & Client Solution, IDC Japan


This IDC study provides a systematic assessment of technologies related to the adoption of virtual client computing. This IDC TechScape is an evaluation model based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that assess a technology's adoption progress relative to one another and to those factors expected to be most conducive to success in a given market over both the short term and long term.

In breaking technologies into three major adoption categories — transformational, incremental, and opportunistic — this IDC TechScape aspires to provide IT buyers with an industry snapshot as to where specific technologies lie today relative to current industry best practices. In addition, the study identifies technologies likely to become best practices in the future and their current state of adoption maturity relative to each other. Within our discussion of individual technologies, we also identify our analyst best opinions regarding key momentum factors — highlighted as IDC TechScape Markers of Momentum, where we rate technologies based on adoption speed, risk, and market interest.

"IDC believes that virtual client computing will evolve into a nexus for digital workplaces and workspaces over the next five years," said Shannon Kalvar, IDC research manager, IT Service Management and Client Virtualization. "This evolution will include deep integrations with analytics, artificial cognition, and Internet of Things but will be hampered with shortages of workplace/workspace design skills."
