Global Session Based Computing Market Boosted by BYOD and Rise of Enterprise Mobility: A Report

Thursday, March 31, 2016


FREMONT, CA: Technavio, a market research company, announces the outcome of a research report conducted stating that the global session based computing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 25% until 2019.

The Technavio research report titled “Global Session Based Computing Market 2015-2019” provides an in-depth analysis of market growth in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. Since session based computing is getting popular as it allows organizations to create a virtual client computing platform enabling them to track mobile enterprise applications, desktop management, and software as a service (SaaS) application management; the market for session based computing is on the rise. Technavio conducted the research of session based computing market based on three categories: Desktop virtualization, User session virtualization and Application virtualization.

Desktop Virtualization

 The global desktop virtualization was at USD 2.02 billion in 2014. Desktop have been transformed tremendously since the past few decades. Most organizations are implementing high-end desktop virtualization processes to keep up pace with the ever-growing number of Bring your Own Device (BYOD) users and changing requirements of the growing mobile workforce. Desktop virtualization is gaining significant importance in companies. IT businesses are looking forward to invest in

User Session Virtualization

The global user session virtualization market was valued at USD 1.48 billion in 2014. User session virtualization is a session based computing model that creates a shared environment to host multiple users from a single OS. It allows access to install applications for each user and requires network connectivity. The virtualization model is well suited for sensitive applications as administrators can continuously monitor, control and regulate work to ensure compliance that confines the use of user session virtualization at a wider level.

Application virtualization

The global application virtualization market was valued at close to USD 1.32 billion. Though application virtualization has some prerequisites to set up and takes a longer time, it benefits mobile data security. With BYOD and Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) on a rise, administrators need to secure mobile devices, monitor network traffic and manage applications health in organizations. When the data is centralized, it reduces data loss especially when data management complies with multiple layers of security. Application virtualization enables IT administrators to effectively maintain security systems by creating mobile data security policies.

“With a rise in mobility and adoption of BYOD, enterprises are anticipated to experience higher level of connectivity with employees. With session based computing and effective use of virtualization, users can access applications and virtual desktops irrespective of location, using various devices such as thin clients, home PCs, and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. It will allow them to get a rich client experience without compromising performance,” says Amit Sharma, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for ITO and BPO research. “With virtualization in client computing models, end-user organizations are significantly saving costs due to reduced investments and reduced upfront capital in hardware. This leads to a reduction in revenue related to outages, downtime, and failures, and thereby allows employees to shift from routine tasks to strategic projects,” added Amit.
