This IDC study presents a vendor assessment of the virtual client computing (VCC) market through the IDC MarketScape model. Virtual client computing forms the core of remote work technologies, allowing organizations to support the new hybrid normal. It encapsulates and integrates the digital workspace, enhancing security and granting the IT organization flexibility in end-user computing options when properly managed. Selecting the right solution, for the most important use cases, is critical to delivering on the promised future of work.

"Virtual client computing is by its nature always going to be hybrid, with resources scattered across the edge, various public clouds, private clouds, and on bespoke hardware," said Shannon Kalvar, research director, IT Service Management and Client Virtualization, IDC. "More so than any one 'best' solution, finding the right solution for your specific use cases can mean the difference between struggling to provide service and providing transparent user experiences where virtualization fades into the background and is just 'the way computing is done.'"
